What better way to start our new year than with a post about how to make MORE MONEY. One of the biggest obstacles we face as a property management company, is convincing owners to clean and complete our make-ready turnover lists when we take them on as a client. This video takes you room by room through a unit that was turned over CORRECTLY and CLEANLY. At the end, you will learn how these owners benefited from their hard work at Turnover!
Most Common Owner Objections:
- Not enough TIME to complete Turnover List
- What’s the BENEFIT?
- It’s too EXPENSIVE to steam clean/replace lightbulbs/update the appliance… etc
- In DENIAL of the dirtiness/disrepair of their rental

The Benefits Of Completing the Turnover List
Lastly, this is the simple part. There are only two benefits that you need to know:
- Rent your unit FASTER.
- Rent your unit for more MONEY.
Boom. That’s it folks. As you hear in the video, the best part for the owners after completing the Turnover Make-Ready List….
Their home rented in 24 hours for $200-$300 MORE than they thought it would.
This is a Win-Win for all parties involved. Owners are happy, Tenants are happy, Managers are happy… Everyones happy.
