How are other park operators handling the property management side of the business right now?
The sad reality is that a lot of our residents are considered high risk. Most of my parks are in a state that has had a state of emergency declared and all schools have been shut down.
I am putting together a letter to all of my on site managers with the following points:
-As always they are ultimately in charge of how they do their job, and what they feel are best practices for their circumstances
-It may be reasonable to post a notice on their door with their phone number and email asking that all non essential park business be conducted through phone and email
-For home showings, it is reasonable to leave the home unlocked and allow applicants to conduct a self tour. Applications can be left on the counter
-A note can be placed on the drop box encouraging residents to sign up for online payments
Does anyone else have any other thoughts or suggestions? Things haven’t blown up yet, but I’d rather formulate a plan before they might in the next few weeks.
