Doris Barrell’s Realizing the American Dream has a fantastic list of basic tools that every home owner should have on-hand. We pulled the top 10 most relevant tools to landlords and property managers:

  • Screwdrivers (straight-edged and cross-head ones in various sizes)
  • Claw hammer
  • Assorted nails, screws, bolts, and nuts
  • Tape measure
  • Level
  • Ladder
  • Handheld power drill
  • Utility knife
  • Hand saw
