State of the Market Although there are signs of stabilization. oversupply of homes on the market and low absorption rates have forced a decline in property values. Low absorption has forced relocating sellers to place their properties into rental programs, causing a record number of vacant, available rentals. Newer (never rented) properties, priced below market are drawing tenants out of previously rented properties which are often less desirable. New apartment complexes add to the oversupply. Landlords are now offering incentives to the limited number of prospective tenants in order to help reduce vacancy loss.
Current Landlord Strategies Retain tenants – aggressively pursue lease renewals 60 days (or more) prior to expiration. Offer incentives if necessary. Maintain properties in above-average condition. Aggressively market properties prior to vacancy and competitive rates and terms, incentives if necessary. Be selective, avoid marginal tenants with unfavorable history. Maintain ongoing tenant communication – anticipate collection problems. Aggressively pursue rental delinquency and eviction if necessary.
