Let’s face it, the holidays can be a stressful time. There’s nothing better than coming home to a brightly decorated, cozy apartment. Even better, to an apartment that feels like home. Here are some helpful ways to engage with your tenants, to make the most of the holidays, and help to keep your tenants happy over the holidays.
Decorate Your Lobby
The lobby of your apartment is the first contact your tenant has when they get home from a long day of work (or holiday shopping). Help them get into the holiday spirit by decorating your lobby. Check out our previous blog post for some ideas including lighting, festive signs and treats.
Give Your Tenants MoolaPerks As a Gift
There’s nothing like a gift to tell your tenants you appreciate them. From gift baskets, house cleaning services, movie tickets and more. It’s always a nice gesture to say ‘thank you for being a great tenant’. If you’re short on ideas, be sure to check out our MoolaPerks, we’ve got a selection of discounts and deals that your tenant is sure to love. Get them a gift card and let them know about the great deals we offer to help them save!
Send Your Tenants Personalized Cards
Custom holiday greeting cards are a fantastic way to show your tenants you care. It sounds time consuming, but simply just writing their name and a short line of greetings is enough. Also, it’s a good idea to include your phone number (or email, whatever way you communicate) to remind them if they need anything, you’re there to help.
Host a Tenant Get-Together
Hosting a get-together for your tenants is a great way for your them to get to know each other, and get to know you better too! Having tenants who like their neighbours helps to build a sense of community and respect in your building, it’s a win-win for everyone.
Engage With Your Tenants Online
If you have a blog, keep it updated with things like ‘budget friendly decorating for the holidays’, or cool DIY projects. It’s also a fun idea to host online contests like an ‘Ugly Christmas Sweater Contest’ or ‘Best Holiday Picture Contest’, which you can post online or your social media channels. Have your tenants email you their photos, and giveaway prizes for the best one! This could be anything from a free cleaning service to a Starbucks gift card. If you don’t have a big online presence, check out this previous post about how to connect with your tenants online.
