After Hour Renewal Signing! Hot
We know that several residents can’t make it to the office during business hours to sign their renewal. Pick a day out of the week to stay a few hours after and have leases printed and ready to sign along with some refreshments of your choice.
For residents signing a 9 month lease have them draw for a free carpet cleaning, an accent wall painted if they provide the paint or even a small discount off rent the first month of the new lease.
For residents signing a 12 month lease have them draw for new countertops, or you can offer minor upgrades, which will still make a big impact: installing or upgrading ceiling fans, or replacing old blinds with new ones. Not only will you recoup some of the cost through increased rent, but when residents do eventually move out, the market value of the remodeled apartment will have increased.
At the end of the day everyone is a winner. It’s important to show your residents that you're happy to have them as members of your community.
