I own multiple rental properties and I am constantly chatting with a real estate broker to find more sites.
I want to have over 20 doors that I am renting out.
For a while it was really hard. I was doing all the work myself. I had over multiple sods that I was mowing with my brother once a week. I also was doing Heating, Ventilation as well as A/C, plumbing and handyman work constantly in my units. It took some time, but I have found workers in the field. I finally have a turf repair that does all my rentals. When I get a modern house rental, I just add their turf to my bill. I have a Heating, Ventilation as well as A/C contractor that handles anything heating plus cooling my renters bring up. I found myself a really nice plumber that has handled toilet repairs, shower drainage plus septic tank issues for me, but lastly I have a handyman that deals with things that aren’t as skilled. Occasionally I need a floor fixed, stairs painted or just a modern window put in. That guy is reasonably priced plus comes wherever I call. Now that I have all my professionals, it isn’t as rough. I am still thinking of relying on a property manager though. I don’t enjoy taking calls all day long. I don’t want to look at each repair to see if it warrants my Heating, Ventilation as well as A/C guy or not. The property manager could save me quite a bit of time. I already have all the professionals I would want the manager to hire anyway. It should be quite straight-forward bringing 1 more employee to the team.
