How to keep apartment turnover times tight

Filling cracks, painting walls, sanitizing, advertising — all of these tasks add up to valuable time and money. That is why apartment turnovers is something that many landlords dread. And though retaining long-term residents by encouraging renewals will help diminish the frequency of turnovers, at some point even the most faithful tenants will pack up and leave — perhaps leaving behind a mess.

That is why having a strategy in place to minimize the duration of the vacancy, while ensuring each unit is in tiptop shape for newcomers, is in every landlord’s best interest.
