How much does it cost for a handyman to do repairs on a rental property

How much does it cost for a handyman to do repairs on a rental property in Albany, OR

Repairs and maintenance issues on your rental property can be one of your most expensive line items. 

Simple repairs that can be done in just an hour or two can end up costing several hundreds of dollars with many of the local handyman service companies or a local contractor.  Throughout the Mid-Willamette Valley the range for hourly repair work can range anywhere from $45 to $125 per hour.  Ouch, that can add up to big dollars in a hurry.  Sometimes you can find the sole individual working out of their unmarked van offering to do work for between $25 - $35 per hour.  They often do not even have a business card and can be hard to get a hold of when you have an urgent need, emergency or just need to get some work done for a tenant that is hounding you.  And for many of the companies out there, they just are not interested in doing small jobs.  This presents a challenge.

At Centurion, we understand that one of the largest expenses of owning a rental property can be repairs and maintenance.  That is one of the main reasons that we have chosen to be a full service property management company that offers an in-house maintenance department.  This allows us to not only control costs better but offer a higher level of service by trained and experienced maintenance technicians.  Maintenance technicians that are not only experienced in their trade but also trained and knowledgeable in Landlord/Tenant law as well as our company policies and familiar with the ins and outs of the properties we manage.  This approach to property maintenance delivers a tremendous benefit and overall cost savings to the property owners we manage for.  If you would like to know more about how we can manage your property and help you save money in one of your biggest areas, give us a call today  (503) 588-0940 or visit our website for more information at
