I would like to create a forum to note the different strategies that have been developed to help MHP owners cope with the pandemic. Please use bullets in this forum, and avoid repeating any of the strategies that have already been given (read through the posts and only note those that haven’t been mentioned already).
A few from my research and a virtual REIA meeting last night:
- Check in with tenants by sending out mass voicemails / texts (available with SlyDial, AppFolio)
- Shift to self-showings for prospective tenants (unlock door before arrive, lock door after leave)
- Consider a plan to decrease/defer rent. Get this in writing. Require proof from tenants in the form of a letter from an employer or doctor’s note before consider.
- Encourage tenants to sign up for online payments, or have a lockbox where they can drop them off.
