Ok property manager friends! I just need a few leasing incentive ideas to lease our last few vacant apartments! We had 19 leases this month and the incentives I had in places they killed/exceeded it! What have you done that you have found motivating and successful!?

We don't have to offer incentives or discounts because of our waitlist and the willingness of folks to pay our rates. Market your property as a coveted property on a Waitlist basis!

Incentives for your leasers? Paid day(s) off, gift card, double incentive, spa day, lunch...

Whatever you opt to do, don't tell your team. Surprise them with whatever extra you opt to do. Sometimes getting the unexpected goes further than sharing up front that they're are extra incentives.

Buy something you know they like. It can be a trinket, gift card, pedi gift certificate, etc. I’ve bought flowers (plants cause I don’t want them to die) for maint spouses, being in donuts & their favorite drinks. You could also do an employee lunch. These are things I do for my team at random times anyway. If you know you’re team, alcohol works too. Lol

Surprise apartments...select one or two with a special gift if they lease it. Pick an envelope...get a lease pick an envelope which have things like double commission, lunch/breakfast on you, casual day (if you don't already do it), leave work early or come in late.

Survey the team to see what motivates them personally. Give them 2 or 3 choices.

I like to do “bounties”(extra commission ) on aged vacants and “not ideal” locations.
I’ve also done a prize wall in a break room or copy room with surprises written on the back. Every lease gets to grab a prize. Makes it very exciting and fun too! Gift cards, leave 2 hours early 1 day, come in an hour late 1 day, movie tickets, etc.
