  • The most likely solution would be getting a package notification program, such as installing parcel lockers, etc. that send texts to residents alerting them their package is safely tucked inside a parcel locker bin. There are all kinds of multifamily

  • Mindy Sharp replied to the topic 'Excessive noise or not?' in the forum.
    First off, it would be great if people understood instinctively what "apartment living noises" sound like, hahaha! How long has this person been a resident (the one in the 3rd floor unit)? It feels to me like she hasn't a clue about shared living spaces.

    Once a resident, right or wrong, complains,...

  • Mindy Sharp replied to the topic 'How to respond when asked about price' in the forum.
    I know in our area, only rent RANGES are listed on websites, except on Craigslist where a particular unit is being advertised. So,it is completely understandable for someone to call and blurt out a question on the price. I always counter with, "Is price your only consideration when selecting your...

  • Hi, Mel! I'm not sure. Straight up, it depends on the management company. I once was told once a small portfolio reaches more than 500 units, they start entertaining the thought of having a Senior Property Manager who assumes this role of oversight. Once there are 1500+, the move toward a...

  • Finding Property Managers can be difficult no matter what kind of property an owner has. I think the best way to find someone you can trust is through word-of-mouth. However, to find someone willing to jump in feet first and take on a hard property c

  • That is an excellent suggestion, Stacy! I've also had residents do auto pay each pay period so half the amount of the rent is "set aside" so when the first rolls around, they have the money.

  • Hi Brent, Interesting topic to me as I have been researching the different issues, problems, and results in renting from a management company versus renting from a private landlord. There are far more maintenance benefits when renting from a professi

  • Anne, so true!!! But we do all leasing online and have little in person contact with our Applicants. So, emailing and phone calls are supplemental without the same benefit/effect. Do you have any ideas to help with those that lease entirely online (b

  • Great suggestions, Jay. What has amazed me are the number of residents who complain later that receiving the "unsolicited advice" was rude and offensive. I think when Managers offer information on where to go for help, it is not meant to be offensive

  • Brent, I too, would be very careful to consider a payday loan or even to suggest it as the pitfalls are well known. However, as I said, one manager I know has offered this suggestion with success. What I see often are those that would never be able t

  • Mindy Sharp replied to the topic 'Late Rent' in the forum.
    Hi Jim,

    Every state has laws specifying when to send, what the notice should say, etc. Most landlords get that form from their attorneys, if there is no management company that provides it. It's pretty standard. Also include the words, "and all occupants, et al" so everyone is evicted at the same...

  • "Is it possible the underperforming employee is doing so because the job doesn’t match their best skills?" I love this statement/question! Rather than looking at someone and judging the person as being or becoming "burned out" THAT is the red flag in

  • Wow, Rose! I am sorry to hear this, and it is along the lines of the online group comments I read. If that happened to me, I would be somewhat traumatized and would think long and hard if I wanted to stay in the industry. What is really a shame is lo
