If there is one way the pandemic benefitted the property management industry, it was by normalizing virtual tours.

Sure it’s nice to have a model unit, but the world has changed, and prospective tenants no longer expect to tour an on-site furnished unit.

Do you know what this means for owners?

You can rent that model unit out and put the money back in your pocket!

The pandemic temporarily made life a living hell for landlords.

But the normalization of virtual tours is a silver lining because it creates a permanent opportunity to capture additional revenue.

What does this look like?

If you have a one-bedroom model unit worth $1500/mo, you can now sell the staging furniture and rent that unit out.
15,000 X 12 = 18,000

That’s $18,000+ in additional rental income with very little effort on your part.

Who wouldn’t want to see a bump like that in their bottom line?

If you’re not already leveraging virtual tours, a website like Matterport is your new best friend.

But what if you prefer to keep your model unit?

That’s okay with us, because we’re not a cookie cutter property management company.

We won’t try to strong-arm you into something that doesn’t work for you. But, if you’re interested in increasing NOI by reducing expenses, we have you covered.
