  • Sandy Martin replied to the topic 'New Apartment Marketing Ideas (1% occupancy!)' in the forum.
    I was a leasing consultant on a lease-up for a small LIHTC community in South Carolina. Below is what we did:

    1. Offered move in concessions taking money off the 1st months rent. If they were late with their rent payment, they would lose the monthly concession (example: $500 off first month's...

    Just to clarify, Mindy, I am a licensed property manager and the owner is an investor with a couple of small properties. A close friend is his accountant and I agreed to consult.

  • Sandy Martin created a new topic ' TENANT COMPLAINTS ABOUT PROPERTY MANAGER' in the forum.
    I have been asked by an owner of another property to advise them on how to handle a problem with the property manager.

    The manager has been employed for about a year and is good at handling the property itself, but has poor people skills.

    The owner has received dozens of e-mails and phone calls...

  • Sandy Martin created a new topic ' Applicant Credit & FICO Score Changes Coming' in the forum.
    I recently read this article about changes FICO is making to credit scoring. I have provided a link at the end.

    Two of the highlights of the article are:

    1. They will lessen the impact medical bills have on the score.

    2. They will stop counting collections that have been paid in full.

  • Sandy Martin replied to the topic 'First time investor question' in the forum.
    If you are a first-time investor, there are some things you need to consider when purchasing near campus. Your goals for a multi-family investment property should be:
    1. Long-term residents to keep turnover costs low.
    2. Applicants who can prove they pay their bills on time
    3. Updates already...

    We are in the process of changing the information in Appfolio to reflect the non-refundable deposit that is due upon approval of the application.

    Two of the 3 applicants already signed their leases. One canceled the day she was supposed to sign.

    We kept $200 of the deposit from the 2 applicants...

    This old house has some good ones. I have used several videos for training. The last one was how to rekey a lock. Haven't set any channels.

  • Sandy Martin replied to the topic 'North Carolina No Incentive To Pay Rent Ontime!' in the forum.
    Just wanted to let everyone know I did that once or twice at my first management job years ago. I've come up with a lot of better incentives to get tenants to pay rent. One way I came up with for nc, is to lease and renew with a monthly discount off the market rate. A lot of companies offer move in...

  • Love your blog. I was discussing this subject with a colleague yesterday. At my small community, I have had the flexibility to start out with taking anyone for lease-up, weeding them out, then finding the right prospects with the use of a "Resident

  • Sandy Martin replied to the topic '3 CANCELLATIONS IN 14 DAYS???' in the forum.
    One cancelled because she is having a troubled pregnancy and has to cut back her hours. They didn't feel they could afford the apartment after that.

    The second one said they had a death in the family. Not sure about that one. They had the power turned on in their name and were on their way to...

  • Sandy Martin created a new topic ' 3 CANCELLATIONS IN 14 DAYS???' in the forum.
    I have been under new ownership for 2 months now. They have an online application that, I assumed, covered things like 1. Non-refundable application fee; 2. Refund of security deposits; 3. A few other important points.

    I realized yesterday, it doesn't. There's no criteria on it, either.

    I have...

  • Has anyone used these ductless systems or know a little about them?

    We have two story townhouses and we are considering installing one to see if it would save us and the tenant money.

    I've done a little research and they seem ideal, except I wonder how they would cool if a bedroom door were shut...
