  • Yes, we are! Are you a member? We got the owner to make a decent offer and the tech accepted it. I had to promise the owner we would see a difference in savings in HVAC repair and appliance repair. If not, he'll have to go!!

    I will have to participate in the survey!

    I am looking for a renters insurance company that covers water damage.

    Water is the #1 cause of personal property damage and loss at our apartments.

  • We have 3 properties with 144 units spread about 30 miles apart in a growing portfolio. We have had 2 full-time maintenance techs, who stay behind, due to the age and deferred maintenance issues 2 of the properties have.

    I have to replace a full-time tech now! I have received only 1 resume and...

  • Sandy Martin created a new topic ' THIS JUST HAPPENED TO US!' in the forum.
    One of our maintenance techs had to get a ride to one of our properties with his girlfriend. She wasn't feeling well and was invited to lay down in the office. She was left alone by the office staff who went to run an errand, for about 30 minutes.

    A week later one of the tenant's of this property...

  • Sandy Martin replied to the topic 'Tenant Alarms' in the forum.
    Our main issue is the person who prints the work orders doesn't know who has alarms. I haven't found a place in Appfolio to put it so it will show up on the work order.

    I'm going to try to find different color tags for those with alarms.

    We have 2 maintenance techs, one though the other called...

    How do you handle tenant alarm system to prevent setting off a false alarm?

    Do you reimburse tenants for false alarm charges?

    Any type of tagging system?

    One tenant claims we have set her alarm off 8 times in the past 9 months. She has a lot of calls for service, too.

    She claims her checking...

  • Sandy Martin replied to the topic 'Tenant Contest' in the forum.
    You need to know you residents to determine what they would prefer. For example, the majority of my residents work and are either single or single with children.

    According to our trash container, they eat out a lot. They always seem to be in a hurry to get somewhere.

    What would that type of...

  • Sandy Martin replied to the topic 'Pet size limits...What are you doing now?' in the forum.
    We changed in April to total household weight of 100 lbs. It is so trendy to have a large dog, we decided to change. I rates went up and I've been full with a waiting list for months.

    We have more problems with residents not picking up after the pets now. Don't know what's up with that.

    I also...

    The old days of "Pay Stubs" are fading quickly. Direct deposit is at an all-time high (unless it's just our areas).

    I wanted to get some feedback from anyone who is using something different than "3 Times the Rent" to qualify.

    I have seen:

    1. 3 times the NET rent (I've always used gross)

  • This is why I feel all units should have at least 2 smoke detectors in the unit. I do not think maintenance should go to a unit overnight to change a battery. It probably started beeping a few days before and they got tired of it beeping when they
