  • 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...

    Hi Sandy!

    1. The tenant is not giving notice for the lease that ends 12/31/14, so he is not governed by the terms of that lease. He is giving notice for the month to month lease that begins 12/1/15, so he must abide by the terms of that lease, which I understand is for a thirty day notice.

  • Sandy Martin created a new topic ' Opinions on Notice to Vacate' in the forum.
    We forgot to send a renewal notice to a unit whose lease expires December 31st. Per the lease agreement, it goes month to month at the same terms upon expiration. The current lease requires a 60-day notice to vacate.

    The tenant gave a notice to vacate on December 12th of January 31st. He is...

    Make sure your company pays the bill. We couldn't get a lease for a week because corporate was behind on payments.

    Can't change the lease.

    It is a good lease for court.

  • This could be a survey, but I'm interested in trends across the country with occupancy higher than ever in a lot of areas.

    I stopped taking vouchers several years ago because the time from application to move in took about 3 weeks. With only 47 units, the loss to vacancy was just too much. There...
