A little extra income

June 5th, 2011 at 02:45 pm

My parents own several rental properties including a trailer. The current renter in their trailer got freaked about the flooding situation and after 5 years of living there they just up an left and told my parents to keep the deposit. Of course they left it a huge mess, and after 5 years of my Dad not being in there it needs some work done. Most of it is not too hard, lots of cleaning, painting and a few minor repairs. The deck also needs to be removed (it is about 30 years old) and a new deck needs to be put on. So starting 6/10/11 I will be helping and making a little extra cash. My Dad usually pays about $9 an hour for stuff like this, plus free food/drink while I am there. Hoping DH will help as well.

    It's amazing what people will do to a property that is not their own... they literally have no sense of right and wrong, and it leads to a mess for everyone else. I am glad that your folks have some insurance that they can rely on you to help get things all corrected. Good on you.

    I just don't understand people like that. Even though it wasn't "theirs" it was still their home where they lived for five years!

    Yes it is horrible. I have been in there putting primer on the walls this week. In one of the bedrooms they painted all 4 walls a different color. Navy blue, purple, green and burgandy! EWWW! So it is going to be really hard to color. People are crazy!
