Informing the residents
With the social media presence informing about the clients new deals, events and news becomes as simple as the press of the button. Keep them informed about the new rental properties and other events happening locally like some gathering or party.

Setting updates and reminders

Instead of sending regular old email you can announce the events like a scheduled repair, a visit or maintenance on the social media. These updates on Facebook and twitter reach them way to faster than the classic email and they do not end up in spam.

Personal approach

Posting the pictures from your office working hours will help the clients realize that a lot of effort is being put up by the entire team for the services they are getting. In return they can show their gratitude through the comments section.

Taking feedback

Invite the clients to share their rental living experience via social media. This way they can tell you about how satisfied they are with the services and they can also post whenever they require the specific service or maintenance to be done.

Scale your reputation

Social media is a double edge sword. Not only your clients can follow you but you can follow your clients as well. This way you can keep track of their presence and measure the satisfaction level of the clients with the units they are residing in.

Conclusion
With the birth of social media you are no longer restricted to mobile phone and email for communication. People using these technologies everyday are growing by the minute and interaction is becoming a matter of everyday as opposed to weekly or monthly. It’s fun interacting with the people without going to their homes.
