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

Sandy Martin created a new topic ' Wage Garnishment for Student Loans in North Carolina' in the forum.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...
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...
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...
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?"
