  • Sandy Martin replied to the topic 'North Carolina No Incentive To Pay Rent Ontime!' in the forum.
    Just wanted to let everyone know I did that once or twice at my first management job years ago. I've come up with a lot of better incentives to get tenants to pay rent. One way I came up with for nc, is to lease and renew with a monthly discount off the market rate. A lot of companies offer move in...

  • Love your blog. I was discussing this subject with a colleague yesterday. At my small community, I have had the flexibility to start out with taking anyone for lease-up, weeding them out, then finding the right prospects with the use of a "Resident

  • Sandy Martin replied to the topic '3 CANCELLATIONS IN 14 DAYS???' in the forum.
    One cancelled because she is having a troubled pregnancy and has to cut back her hours. They didn't feel they could afford the apartment after that.

    The second one said they had a death in the family. Not sure about that one. They had the power turned on in their name and were on their way to...

  • Sandy Martin created a new topic ' 3 CANCELLATIONS IN 14 DAYS???' in the forum.
    I have been under new ownership for 2 months now. They have an online application that, I assumed, covered things like 1. Non-refundable application fee; 2. Refund of security deposits; 3. A few other important points.

    I realized yesterday, it doesn't. There's no criteria on it, either.

    I have...

  • Has anyone used these ductless systems or know a little about them?

    We have two story townhouses and we are considering installing one to see if it would save us and the tenant money.

    I've done a little research and they seem ideal, except I wonder how they would cool if a bedroom door were shut...

  • Sandy Martin replied to the topic 'Difference Managing Rental Apartment and Condo' in the forum.
    I am a multi-family housing manager, I own 2 condos and I am president of the HOA.

    There are a lot of differences, but just some that I would have to say would be:

    Payment differences. Rent is monthly. HOA could be quarterly or annually payments and they both need delinquent reports.

  • Sandy Martin replied to the topic 'How to nail that interview...' in the forum.
    I nailed an interview and beat out my close friend with more experience with 2 things, according to the regional manager interviewing me:

    1. I didn't "babble" or have empty conversation.

    2. I did an extensive market survey on the property with photos of the competition. I really did my...

  • Sandy Martin replied to the topic 'Staff' in the forum.
    It sounds like you are a great Regional Manager! You actually notice that your staff isn't doing anything and are trying to do something about it.

    It's hard to motivate unmotivated people. Are they just "task" people who only do what is given to them?

    What would you like them to do? Give us...

  • Sandy Martin replied to the topic 'Electronic Rent Payments' in the forum.
    Looking at ways to motivate tenants to pay on time when the state only allows a 5% late fee. Here is what we have come up with so far:

    1. Giving concessions off the market rate to renewing tenants and new tenants. A "Concession Addendum" is signed and tenants agree to the discount, only if they...

  • Sandy Martin replied to the topic 'Your preference: Affordable or Conventional?' in the forum.
    I agree with Mindy on the "rewarding" part. Tax Credit was personally and career rewarding for me. Tax Credit is more challenging in some ways. I loved being able to get someone who really needed a home approved. But I also had to watch people I didn't think were deserving get Section 8 vouchers...

  • Sandy Martin created a new topic ' Electronic Rent Payments' in the forum.
    Being new to Appfolio, I am about to get my property set up to take electronic payments for rent.

    I am concerned about partial payments. What is the best way to get full payments and late fees from tenants when the software will accept any amount?

    At my "sister" property across the state line,...

    If you love accounting, filing, running the numbers and being constantly frustrated, Tax Credit.

    If you don't, Conventional.

    I'd only go back to Tax Credit if I were starving (never say never).
