Does Resident Engagement Inspire Lease Renewals?

User Rating:  / 0

Marketing

Most every community has some sort of program to engage with their residents through events at the property. But what events really drive retention and a "sense of community"? Are they affecting lease renewals, or do we throw parties just for the sake of throwing parties?

The survey takes just a few minutes to complete and results will be provided to survey participants for FREE! (If you are not a property management company but still want results, please let us know). To take the survey, click on the link below:

It can be a scramble during the make ready process to get units ready from one resident to the next.

Don't risk a damaged reputation because of your turn process. Sign up for this webinar and you'll learn how to:

  • Synchronize your leasing, maintenance, vendor, and management team members for success 
  • Leverage technology to make the turn process more efficient
  • Pinpoint issues that can arise and wreak havoc on your timeline 
  • Create the best impression when welcoming new residents

No matter how many times you've turned units, there's always room for improvement! Learn make ready best practices that will help you avoid unnecessary vacancy loss and ultimately boost overall resident experience in your communities. Discover how your team can become an unstoppable turn machine when you sign up for this course.

Overcoming Objections to Rent Increases

User Rating:  / 0

Megan and Dawn

For decades, multi-family housing focused on getting new renters, often neglecting retention of existing residents. Here is a rude awakening:

It costs 5 times more to get a new renter than it does to keep the one you’ve got.  With so many new properties creating stiff competition, and rent increases that residents deem excessive, it is critical to rethink the process of renewing a resident while asking for a rent increase.  This session covers:

  • Ways to successfully reason and communicate at renewal time, with actual examples!
  • Why clarity of communication can make or break retention and renewals 
  • Real resident objections and response examples
  • How to create a renewal letter that works
  • The likeability factor and how critical it is in resident retention
  • How resident retention begins with the very first contact
  • How to create positive PR from happy residents whose rents HAVE increased

This opportunity will help you get focused on customer retention; this session will prove that it costs 5 times more to get a new customer than to keep the one you’ve got.

Join Anne Sadovdky and the Webinar Wednesday Team on June 6, 2018 at 2pm Eastern Time to get that Rent Increase!
