It’s highly recommended that you make an active effort to encourage tenants to become involved in the community and that includes essential community organizations and programs, such as the neighborhood watch. The minute tenants are participating in their community, they appreciate a safer neighborhood and Bannock County property owners receive the rewards of low vacancy rates and higher property values.
What is a neighborhood watch?
Neighborhood watch is a one-of-a-kind, citizen-led program in which the members sort themselves out, working with local law enforcement to prevent crime. In fact, the National Crime Prevention Council has said that such programs are one of the most ideal approaches to reducing residential crime rates.
In the event that there is already a neighborhood watch program in your rental property’s neighborhood, we prescribe conveying a communication encouraging your tenants to join up. Many renters are happy to contribute their time to a community that meets their needs and reflects their values, and basically, need that small tidbit of encouragement from you. When tenants are invested in guarding their neighborhood, they are more likely to form positive relationships with community members, stay in the home longer, and keep your investment property from being targeted and maligned by neighbors.
A safe, protected rental home and satisfied tenants are both keys to a successful long-term investment strategy. At Real Property Management Pocatello, we work with property owners and our local community to manage quality rental properties. Our property management experts see how critical it is to promote and sustain good relations with neighbors and community leaders. Contact us or call us at 208-234-1000 for more information.
