3 Tips to Help Keep Your Apartment Complex Safe

Aug 22 2015

The appearance of your staff members.

It is extremely important that members of your staff are easy to identify because burglars may be mistaken as one of your employees. Therefore, require that they wear the same shirts and have their photo ID in sight at all times.

Invest in a reliable security system.

When we say security system, we don't mean that you hire a company just to install some fancy cameras. We suggest that you guarantee there is enough lighting and that common areas are locked when the sun sets. You should also place a high priority on replacing old light bulbs as soon as they burn out, so that accidents are prevented.

Thoroughly screen all of your employees and residents.

Most employers do background checks on their employees but, if you are concerned with making your property the safest community possible, consider doing background checks on tenants. In fact, if you didn't know, some communities are already screening tenants.

As property owners in Philadelphia, we cannot stress enough how important it is to ensure that your property is not only safe, but appears that way to potential tenants. The fact of the matter is, the more secure you make your property, the more tenants you will have!
