  • Sandy Martin replied to the topic 'I need a letter!' in the forum.
    I have been writing a lot of letters lately and after reading what I write, I find it best to minimize the content to as few words as possible.

    So, I write what I would REALLY like to say to make me feel better.

    Then I just write:

    You lease expires____ and we are exercising our option not to...

  • Sandy Martin created a new topic ' Dividing Maintenance Hours Between 3 Properties' in the forum.
    I oversee 3 properties with 2 40-hour maintenance techs.

    Two properties are in the same city. The 3rd property is 25-35 minutes away.

    In the beginning, I divided up maintenance hours between the 2 techs and 3 properties base on the number of units each one has.

    I came up with:
    Property A: 4...

  • Sandy Martin replied to the topic 'Policy/Procedure manual resource request' in the forum.
    I found a great PDF editor. I am using it to create an employee handbook with policies and procedures for a property management office from one I found on the Internet.

    I can delete content and add content. I love it!

    Will share when I'm done. It may be a couple of weeks!

  • Sandy Martin created a new topic ' Administrative Fees' in the forum.
    I've never worked for a company that charged administrative fees to applicants. What do you tell applicants they are for? Is there a way to calculate how much to charge?

    Who can give me the "low-down" on this?

    Thanks!

  • Sandy Martin created a new topic ' Resident Personal Property Loss' in the forum.
    Even though we require Renter's Insurance, they don't always cover resident's losses or the deductible isn't worth filing a claim.

    I need to establish a company policy on reimbursements to tenant's who have personal losses due to our equipment failure or maintenance negligence, etc.

    I have had two...

  • Sandy Martin created a new topic ' Salary Increases for Maintenance Staff' in the forum.
    In the past week, there have been discussions with my team members about gas mileage, use of vehicle compensation, bonuses and salary increases.

    Each team member was told in their interview that there would be no gas mileage or use of vehicle compensation and were told they would have to travel...

  • Owner's won't pay referral fees, but are giving 1/2 off rent for 4 units. I started putting the criteria in our ads, but we have a website that posts everywhere. We're getting inquiries from old ads where the price is about $75 less than the current price.

    We're doing our best to get people to...

  • We took over a property last September at 90% delinquency. We've been evicting bad tenants and non-payers faster that we are moving them in. We only have 32 units, all 2 and 3 bedrooms apartments.

    We use Appfolio and they have great online marketing outreach. I also use Craigslist and Postlets,...

  • Sandy Martin replied to the topic 'property upgrades' in the forum.
    Applying for a grant for a playground and bus stop benches is time consuming. This means the money you are being paid to work for them will be going to this project.

    In my opinion, playgrounds are not being used very much and are not worth the cost or liability that comes with one.

    It's a money...
