The Biggest Problem with Apartment Buildings

Apartments and condos are 85 percent more likely to be burglarized than single-family homes according to the National Crime Prevention Council (NCPC).

What puts apartments and condos at a greater risk for burglary than homes? Unlike homes, apartments are like public places. It's almost impossible for the residents and staff to know everyone. So, anyone who doesn't belong can easily walk right in with a crowd.

On top of this, property managers and owners deal with these:

  • High cost of security guards
  • Property damage
  • Liability losses
  • High vacancy rates
  • Impact of crime on net operating income

These don't begin to cover all the challenges they encounter in their day-to-day property management. But something can be done about them.
