Rental Property Update October 2007

By | November 10, 2007

In October, my tenants called me up about an issue in the house. They told me that the heater was not generating any heat. Since I live two hours away from Philadelphia, it would be inconvenient for me to look at the problem. But more so is that I have no experience in fixing heaters.

I needed to find a contractor for the fix. I asked my friend, who owns two houses in Philadelphia. He recommended his contractor who had be doing the repairs on his houses.

I called the contractor and told him of the problem. He went to the house to look at it and he fixed it on the same day. My tenants were satisfied and called to thank me for the quick fix.

The repair job cost $250. The handyman responded fast and fixed the heater in less than an hour. I was pretty satisfied, considering that all I had to do was make a phone call.

    Have you considering paying for a maintenance contract? I have one on my rental property and all I have to do is call them and they send out one of their preferred vendors. Each service call is only $55. The maintenance plan costs about $300/yr.
