Protect your bottom line by filling vacancies and preventing turnover

Rental vacancies, tenant turnover, and difficult tenants all impact management costs, vacancy rates, the well-being of other tenants and ultimately your bottom line. Tenants with behavioral problems, substance abuse and mental health problems, tenants in personal and financial crisis can be time-consuming and costly.

There are many local organizations, such as the YWCA and Community Psychiatric Clinic (CPC), who have significant expertise not only as landlords of their own rental properties, but have experience serving as advocates and liaisons between the clients they serve and the private landlords their clients are housed with.  There are good tenants such as veterans and families who need housing that can help fill your vacancies. 

You may have reservations about renting to someone because you do not know where to turn if and when problems arise.  Did you know that there are homeless prevention programs that can provide case management, vocational assistance and even rental assistance for tenants who are experiencing personal or financial crisis?  Did you know that there are agencies that can provide 24 hour crisis response to tenants and landlords? 

If you are interested in connecting with community resources and learning strategies to find new tenants and prevent turnover, there is a FREE seminar on September 13th, 6-8pm at Shoreline City Hall. For more information or to RSVP, contact Kelly Rider at the Housing Development Consortium 206-682-9541.

This event is sponsored by the North King County Housing and Homelessness (NUHSA) Workgroup, with support from United Way of King County.
