We are seeing a definite increase in call volume for all of our vacant rentals, as if someone turned on an imaginary switch somewhere. What started as a fairly slow week has turned into a dash to screen applicants, as we now have 6 vacancies ready to rent with applications on almost everything.
We continue to receive good positive feedback from applicants, telling us (without exception) that our rentals are far and away the cleanest and most well-maintained they have seen. After 16+ years in the business of property management, I have seen what passes for "habitable" in some landlord's minds, and it is not good.
At ICPM, we pride ourselves on the services we provide, and not just to our owner clients. Today's tenants are tomorrow's landlords, so we treat our tenants with the respect and courtesy they deserve. Our approach has paid off- we have had tenants go on to become landlords needing our exceptional services. We have had many tenants opt to negotiate renewal leases, saving our owners thousands of dollars in vacancy loss and turnover costs.
Happy tenants take better care of our clients' homes. Take care of your tenant, and they will take care of you.
