Looking to send your tenants a signal that you’re partially human? With the holiday season in full effect, now is a perfect time to get into your renter’s good graces.
Here are a few ideas to let your tenants know that you’re not so bad this holiday season:
- Send out Season’s Greetings Cards
The cost is minimal and the benefit is outstanding. A simple card can go a long way towards tenant loyalty.
- Decorate your Property for the Holidays
Keeping things festive always puts a smile on your tenant’s faces.
- Throw a Holiday Party
This works better for larger buildings (I’d guess 4+ units). Mingling with your tenants under a different set of circumstancess will help them to look at you in a different light. The holiday party is a nice perk that can go a long way towards tenant happiness.
- Upgrade Your Apartments
We’ve talked in the past about using incentives or gifts to attract tenants. The holiday season is the perfect time to do a few upgrades on your units. Even simple things like new hardware, doorknobs, etc. let your tenants know you care.
Remember, a happy tenant is often a long-term tenant. Find some way to thank them and show your appreciation!
