33 Ways to Generate More Property Income

Multifamily Insiders recently reported its findings for the most common ancillary income types for apartment communities. But there are other ways to generate revenue while delivering value to your residents. Read on for Mike Whaling's suggestions.

  2. Late Fee
  3. Pet Rent
  4. Early Termination
  5. Month to Month Fee

  • Lapse in Renters Insurance Fee
  • Redecoration Fees
  • Resident Discount Program (This seems counter-intuitive unless we’re at CostCo.)
  • Marketing Coordination Fee (to pay for social media at the property)
  • Eviction Holdoff Fee (You can’t pay, so we’re going to charge you not to kick you out.)
  • “We also have community gardens, which we charge for”
