Property Management is not a Breeze!

For those who think property management is a breeze. If you're going to do this business, you better be willing to get your hands dirty and jump in with your contractor to get it done! Most owners want and need our help! 

This is a Whitewright property we manage. The tenant told me the tile floor in the utility room was cracking and coming up. She didn't think much of it at first because being a manufactured home, the floors give, right?? But when she pulled up a tile and saw it was wet I sent a plumber to investigate. Seems the water heater had been leaking for awhile now. The entire bottom of the heater had rusted away, was leaking into the pan, and the pan was over flowing at a slow pace. Anyone wouldn't have noticed because the heater is hidden behind a false wall.

The pan should have never overflowed into the floor causing this much damage had the last person who installed the water heater had piped it straight down thru the floor to the underneath of the house. This is what usually happens when you have a "do it yourselfer" doing the work.

Good morning, Tracy Lee Parker you're absolutely right...property management is not a breeze..... I owned and managed 23 of my own units.... and it was hell for many years.... I sold long before I should have....thought I could do it all myself.... big error....it was a relief to sell.
