New York is the city that never sleeps, and neither does its real estate market. With its population constantly changing, the rental landscape changes as a result. Compared to the rest of the country, real estate prices remain high. But, the days of continuously increasing rents seem to be over. Increases in rental property development have caused New York City rents to stagnate over the past year or two. Life moves quickly in New York City. And, property management companies have had to move quickly to keep pace with these changes. New York property management companies, which oversee large numbers New York rental properties, have come up with some creative strategies to meet the needs of their clients.

The Changing Role of Property Management Companies
There have been recent changes in the New York real estate market. And, property management companies have had to change the way they do things. An influx of available rentals has increased the city’s rental inventory, giving prospective tenants and renters with a lease up for renewal the upper hand for a change. New York property management companies have had to employ new strategies to attract new tenants or to keep the ones they have. Companies may offer current tenants concessions such as no increase in the rent if they extend the lease. The concessions offered to new tenants are more varied and creative.
Some property management companies are offering to wave the broker’s fee, offer one or more months rent-free, or even throw in a gift card with a signed lease. Others, especially those trying to stand out in a crowded real estate market, throw in more unusual gimmicks, such as puppet shows for kids or cooking classes for adults. No matter what the concessions are used, the goal is to find tenants for the properties and keep them occupied for the long term.
