It’s highly recommended that you make an active effort to encourage tenants to become involved in the community and that includes vital community organizations and programs, like the neighborhood watch. When renters are invested in their neighborhood, they appreciate a safer neighborhood while Albuquerque property professionals receive the benefits of low vacancy rates and higher property values.
What is a neighborhood watch?
Neighborhood watch is an exemplary, citizen-led program wherein you’ll find members organize themselves, working with local law enforcement to prevent crime. To be sure, the National Crime Prevention Council has considered that these types of programs are sure-fire to reduce residential crime rates.
Once confirmed that there is already a neighborhood watch program in the block where your rental property is located, we highly encourage you to make a communication encouraging your tenants to join up. Many renters are happy to contribute their time to a community that meets their needs and reflects their values, and may sometimes a push to join. When renters are involved in making their community safe, they are more likely to form positive relationships with community members, stay in the home longer, and keep your investment property from being targeted and maligned by their neighbors.
A safe, protected rental home and satisfied tenants are both keys to a successful long-term investment strategy.
