Attract Residents Without Offering Concessions? Yes! 

The article posits that waiving fees and not reducing rents is the best way to attract residents while maintaining property value as stabilized rent levels aren’t affected (while Other Income is). The article provides other non-monetary means to attract residents such as creating and maintaining an on-going sense of community at the property resulting in a favorable reputation in the market. The article  stresses that owners and operators need to continuously ‘stick to the basics’ such as having highly responsive maintenance teams, creating and fervently adhering to the property’s advertising budget and campaign, responding lightning-fast to questions from prospects, and having a laser-focus on the property’s rental rates vs. its competition.
