Christmas is a great time to make your tenants feel appreciated. Little gifts go a long way towards a happy, long term relationship. In December, our city has the “Our Best to You” craft event and I always head there with my tenants in mind. Homemade fudge, amazing soaps, original prints, personalized ornaments – there is no end to the fun. I put a few items together in a gift basket with some homemade turtles and knitted dishcloths (thanks mom) and voila. Your tenants feel your appreciation for taking care of your property and in turn become greater tenants because they enjoy living there. Celebrate the season and share the love. And if you don’t love them – make that your New Year’s resolution!
