I think you need a team behind you such as a dependable plumber, an electrician, a painter/ handyman, a guy that takes care of the lawn and a reliable snowplower.
Through the years I’ve been loyal to them and them to me. My lawn man has been taking care of the lawns for 15 plus years. I had a plumber from the start until he retired about two years ago. Now I have a new plumber who I’ve dealt with since. As mentioned in my last post I’ve had the same painter/ carpenter for almost 15 years.
These professionals are at ground zero whether I’m around or not. You definitely need dependable people like that.
When a plumbing problem occurs, I get the call from my tenant. I assess the problem over the phone and then call my plumber. He goes to the property, fixes the problem, sends me a bill and out goes his check. Somewhat of an autopilot system I guess.
Hope this helps.
