Aggressively reducing vacancy & setting the corect rental price for the Chicago market.
There are instances in which tenants still have a desire to move from a space, and this is where GCR&D becomes aggressive in turning over the space as quickly as possible to procure a new tenant. Working closely with each property owner, GCR&D researches the current rental market to determine the highest rental price that the market will bear. Efforts to lease the space to a new tenant begin prior to the current tenant vacating as this drastically reduces vacancy time even when a turnover is included. Great success has come in following this standard and due to our aggressive marketing techniques, most properties are leased out within 21 days or less.
Our Chicago property management professionals do all they can to eliminate or limit the possibility of vacancy in your property due to turnovers being costly. Leasing a space includes procuring tenants that have long term potential, and once a unit is rented, the team works in a plethora of ways to keep tenants in the space. Turnover costs eat away at profits and the ability to retain tenants proves to significantly increase the profits of owners year after year.START EARNING THE RETURNS YOU DESERVE >>
