My Fellow Landlords (not to be confused with Slumlords)!

Just curious if there are more out in the community... that awkward moment when you get a call about a hot water tank or sink not working and you roll up in a lowered euro vehicle with oversized wheels to trouble shoot a problem. I take customer service very seriously and also work a 9-5 but my transportation usually draws a few comments...

I did that.
Customer called to help troubleshoot some issue and I rolled in a lowered car with loud exhaust.

Then, you can hook up an uhaul trailer to buy the water tank. Been there, done that. Haha!

Benefit of having multiple cars. I usually roll in with my Subaru.

Lol then they can move out. You raise the rent and then find the next tenant! Lol you don't provide a rental for charity. Unless you are running a non for profit. Then cudos

Oh it can be painful, I just give people my contractors contact info so I dont have to deal with them in most cases. But when I do the looks are priceless!

Only been a landlord for couple of years.. my first tenant was trash loser who didn't want to pay her rent. Had to take her to court twice until I could evict her. Second tenant is great, pays rent early or on time and no bounce checks.
