These strategies can help you maintain apartment occupancy in highly populated military areas:

  • Home Base: Form a strong relationship with the base's central housing office. A reputation of owning clean, friendly properties goes a long way.
  • Stay Alert: Official notifications announcing a ship's arrival into a military base are rare. So watch what's going on around you, and read the local press to get an idea of when the next ship, and potential residents, will arrive.
  • Resident Retention: There's no way to control military turnover, but you can minimize turnover among the rest of your resident base. Maintain residents by offering activities, renewal incentives, and top-notch customer service.
