DH has no interest in helping me manage our rental but I knew that from the get go. We both have full time jobs so neither of us is going to leave work to fix a door or plumb a pipe. There are these things called handymen! Your profits might be smaller but for me I just want to break even and my profits will be long term in built equity and appreciated value. I know older woman who manages a dozen With a full time job - she keeps a list of workers and calls them and keeps working. Had mine about 8 years now. Important thing is picking good tenants who won't require lots of handholding and find good plumber, electrician and handyman...
