Have you tried finding out what kind of functions your residents would like to do? When I was managing a property in Galveston we had event after event that no one showed up to. Than we had a community garage sale - a few signed up but when everyone saw how much money each table made for selling their items they started participating. We also did movie nights at the pool that always turned out well!

Shayne Will that’s a good idea maybe do a resident survey to see what things they would like to do. We do a resident pool party BBQ every summer and that’s a good turn out.

Hailey Roberts it's hard to get them to participate. People are busy now days, and tired. Especially if you have kids, sport events, laundry, errands. Not enough time in the day. I have had very successful parties in the past, and then there are those residents that grab food and go home to eat. Try different times for the parties. You could try a football party on a Sunday, or something just for the women, like a jewelry party or a make up instruction, and then something just for the men.

Hailey Roberts I’ve done it several times. Have a raffle that ha a few items. Announce some winners in the middle and the grand prize at the end. Get your vendors to donate some gift cards or services such as carpet cleans. Make the grand prize a rent concession.
