It’s highly recommended that you make an active effort to encourage tenants to become involved in the community and that includes valuable community organizations and programs, and the neighborhood watch is one such highly regarded organization. When tenants are contributing to their community, they will desire a more safe locality while East Providence property landowners receive the benefits of low vacancy rates and higher property values.
What is a neighborhood watch?
Neighborhood watch is a special, citizen-led program in which the supporters organize themselves and help local law enforcement to prevent crime. This is why the National Crime Prevention Council has named programs such as this as one of the greatest means to reduce residential crime rates.
If there is an existing neighborhood watch program in your rental property’s community, we would advocate giving out 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 commonly ask for a tiny bit of support. When tenants are eager to ensure that their entire community remains safe, 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 Providence, we team up with property proprietors and our local community to manage quality rental properties. Our property management professionals sense how important it is to promote and sustain good relations with neighbors and community leaders.
