i am about to hire a handyman to handle all my rental units’ maintenance and minor repairs. i have about 30 units to manage. before i hired people to do each job, but i figure if i use a handyman on a regular basis, i can save a lot for time and $$$. how do you guys pay a handyman whom you use on a regular basis? if you pay him a flat rate, what’s the rate? i know the rate varies from state to state, but i just want to get a basis idea.
