20 long years of property management and I still get up every morning with a spark of joy in my cold dead heart. Why? The reason is that landlords provide an extremely valuable service. In Ontario we are mostly reviled and underappreciated, but that doesn’t matter because literally thousands of people have been safe, warm, and comfortable because of what I have done and continue to do every long arduous day.
If you’re a landlord and you’re putting your money and heart and soul into your property, today take some time and really appreciate what you are doing. It is substantial and valuable and never let anyone make you feel bad or ashamed.
Happy Landlord Appreciation Day!
