It is so important to explore every avenue when trying to generate more income from your properties. This requires creativity and outside of the box thinking. Today’s guest, Ben Suttles, of Disrupt Equity, is here to share some of the top strategies he and his team use to increase their property returns. In this episode, Ben sheds light on why implementing RUBS is a huge boost to property revenue. He walks us through the time frame and other specifications of rolling RUBS out. Ben also shares other tactics for increasing returns, like pet rent and trash and pest fees. When introducing these fees, it is crucial to understand whether your tenant base can support them. This is why it’s important to draw on your property management team’s knowledge of the area and the fees other properties are charging. We also discuss how to get on the same page as your property management team, why you should stagger the introduction of additional fees, and how tighter management itself produces more income. This was a great show, so be sure to tune in today!
