Sustainability has become a watchword for all kinds of businesses and organizations, including property management, as facilities strive for greener, more energy-efficient productivity. But these efforts shouldn't begin and end with updates to your apartment units. Your leasing office, with its variety of daily energy-consuming activities and its high visibility to the general public, represents a golden opportunity for you to demonstrate your commitment to responsible management while lowering your utility bills. Here are three strategies for creating a greener leasing office while enjoying more "green" through lower monthly expenditures.
As we know, incentives and special offers from apartment communities have decreased dramatically in recent years. Back in 2009 when the vacancy rate was at a 23-year high, some properties were attracting prospects as well as encouraging current residents to renew their leases with flat-screen TVs, cash, rent cuts and other concessions. A sharp contrast to today as concessions and incentives are nonexistent in some of the hottest rental markets due to high demand for rentals.
Valuable insights into how you can set yourself apart from the pack. By Daryl Smith, Director of Marketing, Bonaventure Realty Group
