YOUR BTR NEWS BUZZ

EDITOR’S NOTE

In the latest HomeViews BTR Report 2022, BTR developments using Yardi technology were rated higher by residents in every HomeViews category.
 
Keeping your residents happy is vital in building a thriving community that helps boost occupancy and success when managing residential real estate.
 
We now live and work in a digital environment and being able to find, apply and rent a property should be an easy experience – but more often than not, we still have to fight through manual processes.
 
With Yardi RentCafe, you can fulfil your marketing, leasing and resident services needs with a single connected solution.
 
Join us in our next Yardi Presents BTR webinar on 14th June at 11 AM and discover how to streamline your leasing processes with automation and enhance the resident experience.
 
Find out more about how you can redefine the resident experience and what sets top-performing BTR developments apart below.
 
Best,
 
Justin Harley – Regional Director for Yardi
