It’s time for the industry to start considering many different options like 4/10s, which can actually expand hours and serve residents better while increasing benefits for employees.

With the online processes, notifications and call centers, the only reason not to do this to provide better work/life balance for employees is simply fear based management.

I don’t see how it would be possible for the staff to keep up with the demands of residents, mgmt companies and owners. No way. Way to much to close the office for a day every week.

 I definitely understand the thought process but I worked at a community that used to be open on the weekends and we changed it to just Saturdays and eventually to one Saturday a month and then finally closed on the weekends. It was an adjustment for the residents but once they got used to it, they were fine. I imagine the same could be done for weekdays, there is always a learning curve whenever you change things up at a community

I think it can work in most cases, but I wouldn't recommed it be Fridays for the desired three day weekend. I think Fridays are crucial to the business. A midweek break, closing on Wednesdays, makes more sense. Of course, this is also assuming that resident packages aren't delivered to the leasing office.

Leasing offices should be virtual. You could have a PM who works remote, leasing staff travel to site for tours if needed. Covid taught us the amazing use of brands like realync to offer virtual pre recorded tours. I just completed a 400 unit lease up and I’d say a good 60 percent of the leases were done with virtual touring.
I would probably only think that you would need a maintenance team onsite.

The question should not be “Can we?” It should be “HOW can we?”
Until all solutions are explored, we’re not ruling out. If a company is willing to try, fail, evaluate, and try again, I bet a solution can be found that’s a win for residents, management teams, and investors.

There's already a billion solutions, platforms, softwares, call centers, you name it, on the market. "We've always done it that way" is the status quo in property management.

I think covid should have taught us that we can still run our offices without any in person contact at all. Four-day work weeks would give the team more time to rest and recuperate which would help in customer service when they're not as stressed out.
