We have been busy doing fall inspections, cleaning out gutters, and leasing through the slow rental season. We have also been doing a lot of visioning for what the future of our company looks like, which is why we wanted to announce to you all a great new update that we are making:We are re-branding to Latitude Property Management!
I am writing this update on a beautiful fall morning in Portland. This in and of itself is a monumental occasion because I am not rushing to go show an apartment, fix a leaking toilet, or reconcile our trust accounts. For the first time ever, I have the ability to sit down and communicate with you about our company: how we got started, where we are at now, and where we are going in the near future.
Don't be caught off guard when a roommate decide to leave. This isn't the end of the world and it is good to be able to have a consistent policy upfront correctly up front so that you are not caught off guard.
A question we get asked a lot is “how much should I charge for rent?” It’s a great question and obviously one of the most important aspects of rental property. If you charge too much then you run the risk of having higher vacancy. Charge too little and you leave a lot of money on the table and you are not maximizing your investment.
