    We cannot charge more than 5% late fee in North Carolina. That is NOOOOO motivation to pay on time.

    I have recently been promoted to Area Manager and one of the properties I oversee has 80% delinquency!

    OMG!!!

    The new manager and I have developed some really strong letters, made phone calls, sent e-mails, threatened eviction, credit reporting and nothing!!!!

    We didn't file this month because it...

    Accounting or Managing different personalities.

    If you have both of these, in my opinion, you would have the skills to excel to Regional Manager.

  • Sandy Martin created a new topic ' Who's Viewing the Topics for Discussion Here?' in the forum.
    This has been bothering me for quite a while.

    In the "Views" column I always see hundreds of "views," but only a couple of comments.

    Are you guys just looking and not participating?

    Jump on in to the discussion! You don't have to write a paragraph. Sometimes a simple yes or no is good.

  • Sandy Martin replied to the topic 'Is this a good idea for resident retention?' in the forum.
    Personally, I would not do it myself. I would just feel like I was invading their privacy because I am not their "friend," I am their landlord. I consider some of my residents friends and some are my Facebook friends.

    If you do post something, won't all of their friends see it?

    Make it...

  • Welcome back!!

    Don't be nervous about what to know, the forms have gotten more detailed and easier to understand I think anyone could do them. Just get a list of which ones you'll need from your state compliance department, read over the forms and it will be like you never left!

    You are so right, Rose!

    I have 2 units. One with pretty new carpet for $720

    The 2nd unit is going to have luxury vinyl plank in the living room and new carpet upstairs for $735.

    Everybody wants the one for $720. I've turned down 3 apps, so far, due to credit!!

    That should tell me something...

  • This is a new law that has only been in effect a couple of years. My property is just across the border from Charlotte, NC in a college town. Half of my tenants work in Charlotte. I see a lot of student loans in my market. We have a reputable University and a reputable technical college. I am...

  • My property manager at our North Carolina community just got a notice from a tenant that she will be late with her rent for the next 3 months because her wages are being garnished for student loans and she can't get a hearing until then.

    I heard about this and now I am actually seeing what I...

  • Sandy Martin replied to the topic 'Kwikset Smartkey Deadbolts' in the forum.
    I have always used Kwikset locks and rekeyed them with a Kwikset rekeying kit.

    At the advice of a new maintenance tech, I bought a few of the Smartkey deadbolts. One malfunctioned and we had to call a locksmith and paid $150 to get it open because it was a deadbolt.

    I use passage knobs on the...

  • Sandy Martin created a new topic ' Starting from Scratch on a Troubled Property' in the forum.
    I have inherited a 32-unit community in a bad area that has serious and possibly dangerous deferred maintenance.
    A resident started a "Support Group" for the residents who were not getting maintenance service and is handing out material to all residents to call the city housing phone number if they...

  • Sandy Martin created a new topic ' NOW EXPECTING--UPGRADES!!!' in the forum.
    I have received 3 calls this week from prospects asking if I had an apartment with "Upgrades."

    I wasn't sure what they meant, probably because I am not advertising "upgrades" so I just asked:

    "What specific upgrades would you like to see?"

    Here is the list:

    Hardwood floors
    Black appliances...

  • Flyer up at coin laundries worked well for me.

    I also put a flyer up at the closest convenience store to my LIHTC competition.

    I think there is a website called Social Serve to advertise affordable housing.
