Towing Cars Leads to Positive Online Reviews!!!  How Does THAT Work?

 

 

 

 

 

When it comes to property management, the old adage ‘no good deed goes unpunished’ fits the bill perfectly. Specifically when it comes to parking enforcement.

When a resident commits a parking infraction, the worst possible thing property management can do is be lenient. While it may seem like a positive to cut residents some slack and give warnings, or reimburse towing fees even when the resident was obviously in violation, all of that goodwill is counterintuitive to good management, happy residents and positive social media reviews.

That doesn’t seem to jive – being nice can lead to unhappiness and poor reviews on social media? Yes! And in turn, those bad reviews can lead to lower rental rates and a lower quality of clientele attracted to the property. Read More...


 

Ingenious Software Helps Property Managers Reduce Parking Headaches

 

 

 

 

 

 

For most property managers, parking administration is their worst work nightmare. And believing that replacing permits property-wide will solve all their woes is a mere pipe dream, as the integrity of the program starts degrading right away.
Having just reissued all new parking permits, most property managers will ignore the typical, recurring problems, for two, three or even four years, until the pain gets to too high. And the possibilities for parking abuse are endless – residents misusing guest parking, expired permits, former residents continuing to park on the property. The list goes on and on. 
But there’s a better way. One that is not only economical, but also provides up-to-date digital data readily available for management, security and residents alike.

It's Time for a Parking Permit Change—Who Has Time for That?

HOA and apartment community property managers are well aware of the annoyances associated with parking administration.

So time consuming. So frustrating.

Even more tedious than registering the constant influx of new residents is dealing with unauthorized parking on the property. Especially when former residents return to the property, using their old permits to park. Read More...

Parking Permits Progress to Empower Residents 

In our ever-evolving world of smart technology, condo and apartment living may be the next great frontier of digital change. And it may be just as simple as shifting our paradigm of how something as unassuming as a parking permit could be enhancing our lives. 

While some aspects of modern living have progressed to what we remember from watching The Jetsons – domestic robots, 3-D printed food and video-chatting – the humble parking permit hasn’t enjoyed much advancement. Read More....




Cutting Edge System Solves Guest Parking Abuse

Living in an apartment or condo definitely has its advantages, including lower costs, shared amenities and a sense of community. However, residing in close quarters is not all sunshine and roses. 

When people live in a shared environment, there are plenty of ways they can irritate their fellow tenants. But not all are guilty of just committing minor annoyances; some are breaking facility rules originally established to create a safe and pleasant living experience for all. Read More....


 

Student Housing Adds Technology to Enhance Parking Management 

When San Diego universities start the fall semester, more than 3,000 students in several of the area’s largest Class A housing developments will be pleasantly surprised with how smoothly the move-in process will go. A vast contrast to the chaos of years prior. 

And they can all thank Kevin Wexler, Reliant Parking CEO. Wexler recently developed software that propels the archaic system of tracking residents into the digital age, empowering students to self-manage their parking registration and administration. Read More....


 

Parking Lot War Zone

I recently read a couple of articles focused on apartment parking that validate what I’ve learned from my experiences – properly managed parking lots create a safer and more inviting community.

The opposite can be true when parking is uncontrolled or limited. 
In the first article, a man in Washington D.C. attempted to harm his neighbor with a tool over a parking space, and in the second, a young woman in Northern California was shot over an ongoing disagreement over a parking spot. These are not isolated incidents. Countless stories confirm that residents can get very upset over a lack of parking spaces.  

The situation isn’t likely to improve in the near future, due to recent legislature.  Read More....


 

Lower Parking Ratios - Trend or Tragic

We all know the frustration of not being able to find parking when we need it most. Driving around for what seems an eternity after a long day at work or when you venture downtown for a special event. 

If some city officials have their way with proposed regulations, your hunt to park your vehicle may become even more difficult. Or even worse – there won’t be a spot when you need it.

Historically, parking regulations mandated an abundance of parking spaces in shopping centers, office buildings and even living spaces, such as condos and apartments – a required number of spaces per square footage of a store or 2 spots per residence. Read More....
