    • CREATING INCENTIVES While your rental properties may not be able to accommodate a business center or yoga studio, to attract these high-demand renters, property managers must think outside the box. Consider updating lighting features, floors, or even appliances. These changes can do wonders once your property is on the market. Install Wi-Fi throughout your properties for the convenience of today’s tech-savvy renters. Maintain constant communication with your residents, and be proactive on service issues. Partner with a local business, such as a yoga studio. Residents will appreciate a discount for businesses within the community.
