My friend Ben Leybovich likes to give me a hard time because I still tend to do some manual labor with my rental properties.
In the past six months, I’ve climbed on several roofs, patched a leak in siding, vacuumed out 3 inches of water from a basement apartment, and even worked on a toilet or two. Honestly, I try not to, but every once in while, I do it either to save some money or to save a bit of hassle trying to find someone competent to do it.
So today I just wanted to pose a question to our readers:
Should a landlord ever do their own maintenance work? Or should they stay out of it and work ON their business? Or is there a happy medium?
