40-Plus Things You Can Include in Your PM Listing Kit

40-Plus Things You Can Include in Your PM Listing Kit

A PM listing kit is something you don’t see too often these days. Too many property managers and business development managers (BDMs) don’t use a visual display of their services or show examples of property management in action.

The ‘show and tell’ just becomes a ‘tell’ missing the stronger impact of an added visual presentation.

Whether you prefer an electronic iPad presentation or a hard-copy presentation folder, display is up to you, however showing an example of how you practice property management is essential.

In any case, here’s a comprehensive list of all the different things you can possibly have in your Listing Kit. Pick and choose what will work best for you!
