A housing complex with approx. 117 units.

Looking to contract a handyman for approx. 20 hours a week at $40 000 a year.

Odd end jobs, completing work orders, parts are paid for as needed (by owner).

Pro's, does this sound like a good deal?

In my opinion, that's not a bad deal for part-time handy work.

A lot of people here in Montreal would work a full week to make that.

It does sound like a good deal for an independent handyman but for companies running multiple crews and managing multiple properties it's not enough. In the small town of Brockville we offer this service quite frequently and we have a charge of $150 for the first two hours and $45/hr after that. Getting people on demand is tough on the best of times so unless there is a weekly routine/schedule with minimum guarantees you may find it difficult to find what your looking for.

I agree with some of the other comments. It would be fine for a part time handyman but with 117 units, and I assume the main hall ways and other areas in the complex, you may require much more time to do the work and keep the place up to standard.
