For a homeowner or tenant, pest control is about comfort and convenience. No one wants to share their space with pests, especially since some pests carry disease, sting, bite, or otherwise lead to discomfort that makes it difficult to be content in what should be the comfort of your own home.
But for apartment complexes – particularly apartment managers and investors – pest control is about more than that. Pest control is about ensuring that your property remains rented in an era of online reviews and rapid dissemination of negative information.
For apartment complexes in Vancouver, tenants are no different than customers. You only make money as long as your tenant stays on your property, and you lose money every day that someone isn’t there.
There are a lot of factors that go into tenant satisfaction, but one such factor is pests. Apartments with a lot of pests tend to have more upset tenants, and more upset tenants means that there may soon be more empty units than anticipated.
But losing a tenant is also only one part of the challenge. We also live in an era of online reviews, from Yelp to ApartmentRatings to Facebook to RentCafe and more. These sites allow your tenants to go online and vent their frustrations, and potential future tenants will examine those reviews before they decide whether or not to move into your property.
If you want to scare people away from renting your units, tell them there are pests. There are few warnings that make people as afraid to move into a new apartment as the potential for pests to be present.
