I am reviewing a deal and had a question on one expense item listed on the p&l. On the P&L, 'Maintenance Salaries' is $21,500, which represent about 8% of the effective gross income. Does this seem high? What would be a good range?

Expressed that way, it suggests that they have a Plumber, Electrician, Carpenter, et cetera, all on retainer, and you're going to pay this $21,500 regardless of whether you need to call on them or not . . . . but when you do, they're required to respond pronto.

It seems too low to be for a full time person; but I don't use the word "salary" for time paid for by the hour.

Maybe it's just for a part-time Handyman ?

Have you looked into how much this expense at similar buildings in the area to see what other owners pay? Has this number jumped recently based on the building's history?
