The economy has impacted several areas of the country. The ritzy folks that will be attending the masters are no exception. The property managers in Augusta are struggling for the second strait year to fill the vacancies. Money is still being spent but it will not be sent toward the rental properties. Have you ever gone on vacation and rented at a condo or rental home? Have you ever wondered what is driving the costs of these rental properties? The management of these facilities have a lot of the the answers to these questions. They are also very willing to barter and help you out because in return they have a rental property that is not just sitting around collecting dust. The management generally has the upper hand because they own the property; however, many are willing when asked to negotiate a deal in order accommodate the customer. In essence when the customer scratches the back of the owner he returns the favor and scratches the back of the customer by reducing the price or finding a more appropriate property for their stay.
Vacationers often return from Mexico thrilled at their new purchases because they were able to “swindle” the man at the hat shop. The same vacationer reaches a sense of disappointment when he or she goes to buy something at the store and realizes that the prices are fixed and are set at the discretion of the management. In many cases this is the rule, strict and simple. Fortunately in the property management business the transactions are not always nonnegotiable. Do you ever wonder why a company can give a discount one day and the very next day the price returns to the outrageous price found a few days previously. When a salesperson gets desperate he or she will adjust according to their needs. Property management corporations are just as willing to earn a buck as the next just as much as the property managers at the masters.
