Well this might be a great opportunity for someone. I just want to encourage anyone interested to make sure that every expectation is spelled out in the lease. The clause "TAKE CARE OF TENANTS" in the original post may (often does) turn into a real headache. Make sure your hours over-and-above those specified are credited to you at a reasonable rate. The clause "NEED A CELL PHONE, CREDIT CARD" indicate that you may be expected to pay for materials and services for the landlord. Be aware that you can get yourself badly pinched between landlords and service providers who demand payment.
As I said, this might be a great opportunity. If you're interested just be careful and be smart. Have an attorney review the lease/contract before you commit.
I HAVE HAD CARE TAKERS FOR OVER 8 YEARS NOW!
Have you found someone yet? If not can we talk?
Bill, if you stopped dramatically capitalizing every post, you would come across as a little less volatile.:D
Actually, I think the poster who questioned your "deal" wasn't far off target when you break down the figures. $400 for a small studio with no view, plus electric and water and cable is a low ball of $500. The least you can pay someone these days for the maintenance you require is $15/hour. so at 8 hours a week ($480/month) the total monthly is now up to $980. With the economy in a continuing downward spiral and apartments remaining unrented for months at a time even now in "high season" (and many nice 1BRs available for $750-$950) it's really not that sweet of a deal at all. If I were you I'd at least include electricity, water and cable - and provide a cellphone for on-the-job use if calls from and to tenants and providers are part of the job description and a gas allowance for any pick ups in the employee's own vehicle.
