Multifamily Industry Report Card Now Available at CallSource
Date: December 17 2010
Westlake Village, Calif. – December 17, 2010 – CallSource(®), the multifamily industry’s leading provider of skill and compliance training, call tracking and recording, lead management and performance analytics, today announced the availability of its Q3, 2010 Telephone Performance Analysis (TPA) Industry Report Card.
Published quarterly, the Industry Report Card is designed to provide an objective report on how effectively leasing professionals across the industry are answering telephone leads. The findings in the current issue are based on the review of 85,155 calls spanning 1,445 communities nationwide. Each call is reviewed using a survey of best practices created by industry professionals with a combined total of more than 150 years experience in successful ownership, management, and operation of apartment communities.
Among the survey findings:
• Only 33% of reviewed calls from qualified apartment seekers were converted to appointments.
• 4,386 appointment-setting opportunities were missed.
• 1,097 fewer leases were written as a result.
• Total lease revenue lost by these communities: $12,948,653.*
*Total lost revenue based on industry averages.
“This report reflects the ongoing trend of revenue losses that continue to impact the multifamily industry,” states Jerry Feldman, CallSource CEO. “This erosion in revenue is directly connected to an industry-wide problem among leasing professionals – the lack of the skills necessary to set a higher percentage of appointments and close a higher percentage of leases," he adds.
