Tip #86: Meet the Neighbors One of the best ways to retain good tenants is to allow them to develop a sense of community within the rental property.
Meet The Neighbors is an “intranet” provider that allows tenants in apartment communities to stay in touch with one another.
Designed by the creator of the Lunch Club in NYC, this free service offers a secure homepage for each community or apartment complex, and allows tenants the opportunity to meet one another, connect on common interests, and feel like they are a part of a neighborhood.
The format offers a notice board to alert tenants of upcoming events or rule reminders.
Participation is voluntary. Landlords can register the building and offer the link to new tenants, or put an interested tenant in charge.
