Rental property owners should urge their Tulsa tenants to join their important community organizations and programs, such as the area’s neighborhood watch. If you do this, you encourage your tenants to get to know other people and establish deeper relationships in a safer community. This provides rental property owners with low vacancy rates and higher property values.
A neighborhood watch is where citizens organize themselves and work with local law enforcement to prevent crime. It is a community-led program with the purpose of making the neighborhood safer for everyone. In fact, the National Crime Prevention Council said that programs like this are one of the best ways to prevent crime in a neighborhood. This is because an all-hours watch on local streets is only possible when community members volunteer their time and resources. This demonstrates their commitment to crime prevention day and night. Each neighborhood watch group is unique, formed to cater to the needs of a precise location. But they all supply a helpful service that can make a neighborhood safe and attractive for all residents.
As property owners, it is important that your tenants be involved in neighborhood watch programs. Make an effort to convince them to join. A lot of renters actually want to be part of the community, especially if the community meets their needs and are in step with their values. For these renters, a little nudge in the right direction will be good enough to get them to join the neighborhood watch program in your rental property’s neighborhood. When tenants are involved in keeping their neighborhood safe, they have a greater chance of forming good relationships with community members, reside in the home longer, and would work to keep your property from being targeted and maligned by other people in the neighborhood.
