    Work to increase our visibility on the internet, and we can rent and receive payments at a higher rate than we are now. Probably use more face book coverage.

      Increase all existing tenants to market rates
      Install metal security fencing over 150' of exposed chain link
      Repair and repaint 3 large buildings
      Resurface interior hallway floors
      Complete installation of 4 additional security cameras
      Repaint interiors of vacated units as they open
      Lien letters go out on anybody over 30 days late, without exception
      Continue occupancy of over 96% (no more than 15 units open at any time)
      Eliminate company unit, put back into inventory
      Complete upgrade to all LED lighting with 2 more wall pack installations
      Replace sliding chain link gate with decorative wrought iron to match others, paint
      Shop business insurance carriers, look for better rate/coverage
      Shop credit card processors, look for cheaper fees but with reliable software integration

      And all this is paid for by getting #1 done ASAP.

                That's a great list! It's good to be busy, and even more fun to see the fruits of your labors increase rentals and reviews.

                  Nice video from SkilCheck that includes "resolutions" for operators. Check it out and tell me what you think.

                    1. Increase efficiency by improving and streamlining processes.
                    2. Improve online presence
                    3. Alter company culture to one that is more open, friendly and educational.
                    These are just my personal goals for the business, I'm sure that other individuals in the company have different ideas.

                      #1 on my list completed today. Rent increase letters/emails went out to a couple hundred customers. So far I've gotten one person that wants to prepay for a year to get the discount, and another that sent me a nice email thanking me for trying to keep the rates low for as long as I have. So far so good, and this helps unlock the rest on the list.

                      2 weeks in, and I've added security fencing over 150' of chain link and installed a replacement wrought iron rolling gate in place of a chain link rolling gate. 3 on my list already done. I need to pace myself, I don't want to get too much done too quickly, or else I'll demand more of myself.

                          So I dont like the idea of running specials personally because people are absolutely crazy. BUT I had an interesting idea, wanted to see if others had any experience with this. Taking coupons ( say $10 off sign up or whatever) and taking them to uhaul places, realtors and property management companies...

                          We put bait stations in every empty unit and refill the bait. Also we spray the insides with bug stuff. I wouldn't trust a tenant to do it. I let the tenants know this when they rent a unit to not be alarmed if they see it, "we dont have a mouse problem and we dont want a mouse problem. And we...
