Learn How to Lease on Value not on Price

A lot of communities/companies have been utilizing this concept for years. As a matter of fact, the Johnstown Companies preached added value in their training and marketing programs, so it’s not a new concept. What is new about added value is how our residents and future residents perceive the value we are trying to add. In other words, what they thought was great in the 80s is not so great today.
