The New One Cut Wonder!

Your Brand New Money Maker and Extra Income for Landlords and Property Managers

Brand Spanking New for both Me & You!

After having recently wrapped up my complete business makeover for my real estate business, including property management side, once again a another simple money maker has been implemented.

Last month while reviewing all of the monthly statements and our monthly resident newsletter, Beth and Shirley made the comment about how challenging it is for new residents to enroll in our Elite Lawn Service Program. This monthly fee is built into their rent. It includes professional lawn care service, leaf removal, and gutter cleaning.

This is not a new issue for landlords.

GOOD – A tenant in an apartment who Pays Rent Early Every Month and never calls or complains.

– now he is 600lbs and has a lot of trouble going up and down stairs.

– he lives in 3rd floor apartment

– says he has no friends except his “2 cats” (yes, 2 cats were allowed)

– his parents live 3 hours away.

ISSUE – Tenant in apartment below reports leak in her bathroom ceiling and there is terrible odor in the hall coming from this fellow’s apartment.

– Work Order scheduled for repairs

– Dan photos before and after.

– Photos show outrageous dirt, trash, cat crap everywhere.

– Our 20yr+ Pest Control guy who sprays for bugs in apartments refuses to re-enter apartment until cleaned up or this guy is gone.

– Our Air Conditioning Service Person reports same.

SOLUTION – proposed tenant enrolling in a weekly maid service to clean his apartment and report to office.

– at this time, tenant is agreeable and willing to pay.

– his re-inspection is scheduled for 3pm today.

Stay tuned for the next chapter to see what Tenant does to get results.

Just in case you have not heard about it, the new federal law scheduled to outlaw 100 watt light bulbs has been shot down.

Before being shot down, this new federal law scheduled to take effect in January 2012, outlawed 100 watt incandescent light bulbs. Edison would roll over.

Stay tuned for the fantastic educational video on lighting from Peter Konopka (this training was done before they shot down the new federal law)
