Renting out your property isn’t just about being a landlord anymore.
As with any other business transaction, there is a client and a supplier. As the landlord, you are the supplier, and it is your duty to provide the best possible service to your client. This will help you avoid tenants that don’t pay rent on time.
Listen to your tenants
A hard and fast rule of maintaining a good relationship with your client is to listen to them and what they need. Making an effort to understand their needs will help you run a more successful business and avoid financial loss. While you don’t always have to give in to their demands, understand that there are proper ways in which to address their issues. Proving your point won’t always serve you well, especially if it means losing a client.
Open Lines Of Communication = Resident Retention
Property managers need to be in regular contact with their tenants to build a trusting relationship, not only when there’s a maintenance issue or its lease renewal time. An open line of communication leads to an overall better customer experience, and this leads to residents who want to stay put at their properties, as well as recommend them to friends and family. And in a competitive market, this positive word-of-mouth can be the best marketing tool a property manager has.”
