By Devon L. Hicks on Apr 27, 2020 11:00:00 AM

For Indianapolis real estate Investors, there are many factors to consider when analyzing a deal. 

A factor you may or may not have considered, is if a property is being sold as-is.

Renewing Your Tenant's Lease During the Covid-19 Crisis

By Jeremy Tallman on Apr 5, 2020 10:00:00 AM

Last week, we discussed leasing your home during the COVID-19 crisis. 

This week, let’s switch gears and discuss an equally important component of successful property management: renewing the Lease. 

Keeping a Tenant in place, especially in this unstable environment, is a very good thing. We’ve always taught that vacancy is a cashflow killer.

Below are a few basic points to consider when renewing a lease during the COVID-19 crisis. In a lot of ways, we will continue to operate in the same manner, but there is one big change along with some trends that you need to understand:

Leasing Your Indianapolis Rental Home During the Covid-19 Crisis

By Jeremy Tallman on Mar 28, 2020 11:00:00 AM

Every Monday, we meet and discuss, among other things, the previous week’s rental marketing activity. 

We discuss our showing levels.

Number of applications we processed.

Leases we signed.

And a host of other stuff.

All these Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) give us a good sense of the health of the rental market in Central Indiana. 

Admittedly, this past Monday, I wasn’t excited about reviewing the previous week’s numbers. Given all the turmoil in the world right now, I was convinced we would see a sharp downturn in our numbers.

And… I was totally wrong.

Showings? Up.

Applications? Very strong.

Leases Signed? Right in line. 

Hmmmm…….

Now, clearly, we took a big turn last week here in Indianapolis, as our Governor announced a “stay at home” scenario that will last until April 6th. 

So, we’ll see if showing levels continue to stay strong.

But, how do we explain why showing numbers and general rental activity continue to show strength?
