Using Facebook in your Apartment Marketing

Reading Time: 4 minutes What do all of the following have in common: poking, tagging, and sharing? Things young children do to the annoyance (or elation, for the last one) of their parents? Close! They’re also Facebook actions. Now, as one of the first social media sites, Facebook is the most popular virtual network, and should be your first site to consider with your apartment marketing. But even though we’re probably all familiar with Facebook, how might we use the site to generate lead interests?  Perhaps the first thing that comes to mind is to take out a Facebook ad.

Reading Time: 2 minutes Technology and attention spans aren’t the only thing getting smaller in 2017–so is our housing!

Benefits to Renting an Apartment

Reading Time: 4 minutes When visiting my best friend to cat-sit last week, I got the opportunity to tour the new home she just bought. Gorgeous views, new furniture, and modern architecture had me all but convinced to start shopping for a house in my mid-twenties. As we got to the basement, my friend opened the door to her guest bedroom to find…a huge wet stain on the carpet, dripping from the exterior-facing wall. Three days into home-owning, and she had a serious plumbing issue. My first thought was to tell her, Oh no! Call the landlord! And then, it sunk in. She owned the... View Article

Reviews and Ratings

Reading Time: 3 minutes A good review on an apartment hunting site can feel like an inspiring Oscar speech: it’s heartfelt, it’s genuine, and it inspires people to move (quite literally in this case!). When your residents sit in front of a keyboard to review you, imagine each of them carrying around a gold statue and preparing to take that mic in front of thousands of people. What would you like them to say? What do you want to avoid? Here’s what we know: ratings and reviews are key to finding great residents. A new study shows that 84% of residents hold online ratings...

Keep Your Residents Happy: Using Texting to Increase Resident Satisfaction

Reading Time: 4 minutes Stop us if you’ve heard this one–a property manager needs to get a hold of their resident to schedule maintenance, but can’t reach them through email or paper notices. The property manager schedules the maintenance at an inconvenient time for the resident. Disappointed, the resident leaves the next year for another apartment complex. The property manager has lost a good tenant, and the resident has lost out on a good home. At Marketapts, we know how difficult facilitating resident interactions can be. We feel strongly, though, that each resident deserves a good relationship with their property managers, and every property... View Article
