What Tenants Want
Source: Property Management for Dummies
By Robert Griswold
If you are trying
to raise your level of tenant satisfaction (and that should always be
your goal), you need to determine what your tenants want and figure out
how to deliver that to them. Your tenants are basically looking
for the following:
Timely and effective communication.
Professional maintenance of the interior and common areas.
Respect for their privacy.
Fair and consistent policies and rules, as well as equal enforcement of them.
Reasonable rent in relation to what they are getting.
A variety of issues concern most tenants-and those
issues are usually fairly obvious. Good tenants do not like loud
or noisy neighbors, unkempt common areas, broken or unserviceable items
in their rental unit, or unsubstantiated rent increases. But the
good news is that most of these problems can be solved if you have good
communication and follow-through.
