What challenges do you face right now?

  • The Internet has revolutionized the apartment-search process and provides more interactivity between leasing agents and prospective renters.
  • Rent is the leading search criteria when prospective renters are searching for an apartment. By using a utility billing service to recover utility expenses you can separate rent from the cost of utilities to maintain your marketability when advertising next to competitors on the internet.
  • Stabilize rent amounts. By charging back utility expenses you donít have to worry about raising rents to compensate for rising utility rates.
  • Low rent amounts are more significant to prospective renters compared to a separate utility bill.

Expensive Utilities?
  • Utility expenses are projected to drastically increase.
  • Shift the burden of utilities to the residents. When residents are responsible for a portion of the utilities they are more likely to conserve energy and water, and conservation efforts create lower utility bills.

Loss of Revenue?
  • Utility expenses are detrimental to a propertyís income, especially now that energy and water costs are at an all time high.
  • Utility expense reimbursements from residents combined with a more energy conscious resident increases the net operating income (NOI) and the overall value of the property. Plus, Great American services require no capital cost.
