Self-Storage Talk Thread: Breaking the News to Tenants About Rent Increases

If you’re a smart self-storage operator, you’re regularly raising the rent on your existing tenants; but you don’t have to increase everyone’s rate across the board.

It’s critical but can be challenging, especially if yours is a large property.

In this thread on Self-Storage Talk, the industry’s largest online community, a member debates notification methods. Which are the most efficient and cost-effective? How do you handle rent-increase alerts? See what others suggest and share your strategies.
