I honestly don’t know how other long distance real estate investors handle work orders from their tenants.
I wrote a blog previously about how valuable having a property manager has been to my team.
Today, I received a text from my Property Manager. I’m thinking a bunch of things like is the tenant okay, was there storm damage from Hurricane Ida, etc.
Low and behold, it was about the stove. The stove wasn’t connected properly and a part burned out. Go figure!
No one was injured. The property is still standing. The stove has been repaired and I reimbursed her the amount that she paid for the part. Luckily, I purchased warranties on all the appliances I purchased or that may have hurt my feelings and my pockets. 😂
My advice to anyone who is considering buying long distance real estate rentals or just investing in rentals in your neighborhood, try looking into getting a property manager. The service they provide to you is worth the money.
