Tips to Accommodate Residents Who Are Moving from Out-of-State
As a property manager, it's crucial you make sure that all your residents feel welcome at your property. It can be especially stressful for residents to move from out of state, to a property in a new area. However, as a property manager, you can make things easier for your residents as they make a hard transition. Here's how to accommodate residents moving from another state:
Make It Simple to Fill Out Forms Online
These days, most all paperwork and clerical things are handled online. So, make sure that you make it easier for residents who are moving from distant locations, by allowing your lease agreements, deposit, and other paperwork to be done online. This makes it simpler for residents, and you'll be able to keep track of things more seamlessly as a property manager.
Give Moving Company Suggestions
It can be difficult to figure out what moving company to use when you're moving across the country. Some moving companies only work in certain localities, so as a property manager, provide your incoming residents with a list of moving companies that help with long-distance moves. This takes something off your resident's plate, which will make the move easier.
Host Socials to Introduce Residents
Moving to a new state often means leaving behind your loved ones, so to foster community and help out-of-state residents meet new people, host socials for residents. Whether you have community dinners, mixers, or other events, your residents will appreciate having the space to get to know each other, especially if they're new to the area.
Even though it can be challenging to make a move to a new area, it can be more tolerable if property managers are helpful and accommodating to residents moving from out of state. For more information about Targa Real Estate, contact us.
