Total Time: 3 hours
Stress Level: Low
When you work in high stress job/career, it actually helps to dumb down your day and do something easy like clear an apartment full of miscellaneous junk.
A busy week for sure, multiple projects happening at once in multiple properties./div>
2 min. phone conversation regarding excavation in rear lot. 1 SMS asking landscaper a question about a lawn clean out. Both of these could have easily be done Monday, just was waiting in line and it came to mind.
Started the week going to one of the properties to grab a check and review a tenant move out. It’s on the way to work so no big deal, total time 15 minutes. Next went to a second property to meet and review a parking lot excavation project, pickup a check, pay a helper and check to see if my basement was still nice a clean. Total time = 60 min. Later that day stopped back at the place to check on progress, 60 min. Checked mailbox and called a tenant about rent, picked up rent check that was late, +90 minutes including some drive time. Overall a busy day, but I caught up quick on email and it didn’t hurt too much with work. Total Landlord part time work = 3 hours 45 min.
Quiet Rainy Day
Stopped by to pay a contractor, lot finished and tenants happy. 30 min.
Stopped by to see progress on my bathroom renovation project As you can see from the image below, the floor rotted out and needed replacing. The trick to this project was to get it looked at and investigated well before anyone moved out. This way, It will only be vacant a few weeks, rental income will pick back up quickly after the new fixtures and floor is in. Also, key to start showing it before it’s 100% done, saves on time and people generally get it that it will be nicely finished. Oh, and I moved a few household items to the trash today, total time 80 minutes.
Called tenant about late rent, 5 min.
