So being a landlord is my fifth career to be honest.
I’ve recently retired from the commercial Heating, Ventilation, & A/C of a corporate office.
Well, I took a retirement offer when the supplier chose to merge. It was just too wonderful an offer to pass up. But I’m still in my late 50’s & want to keep particularly busy. So buying, renovating & then renting small households is what I’ve gotten into. In a way, owning & then renting properties was something I constantly kind of had a passion for. Once I was done with that commercial Heating, Ventilation, & A/C of the office, I looked into it. I took some classes in order to learn the legalities & details of being a landlord. I also liked the fact that I can work from my lake house inside my own central air conditioning most of the time. I’ve constantly appreciated household projects & so has my fiance. We’ve done a lot to the unusual households that we’ve owned & enjoyed it honestly much. So she’s right there in it with me with the current rental properties. But we’re still experiencing a huge learning curve. While I can do most things when it comes to household projects, I leave the electrical, plumbing & residential Heating, Ventilation, & A/C up to the professionals, and on our first household, we signed the renter prior to having the renovations handled. The last thing that we had to do was to update the heating & cooling. But we hit a snag with just a week to go. The ductwork inside the lake household was worthless & had to be updated but that would take too much time & run us over budget. Happily, we have an awesome Heating, Ventilation, & A/C professional who was able to come up with an immediate solution. That solution happened to be ductless heat pumps.
