VIP Checkout Experience

Lets be honest, moving is not always the most enjoyable time. It can be stressful, exhausting, time consuming and expensive. Roers Property Management has come up with an option to help alleviate all of those parts of moving so residents can look forward to the next part of their journey – the VIP Checkout Experience.

The VIP Checkout Experience is an exclusive offer for our North Fargo properties. The Roers Property Management team really dug into what it is that can be the most stressful parts of moving out. This is what brought the VIP Checkout Experience to life! It can be hard to manage moving out along with working, going to school or coordinating multiple schedules with roommates, but then add in cleaning, scheduling carpet cleaners, packing and then ensuring the check out time will work with your schedule. The Roers Property Management team is very excited to offer this opportunity and make life a little easier.

Here are some of the items included in the VIP Checkout Experience which residents can take advantage of:

There is a limited number of spots available for this offer. For more information, please contact a Roers Property Ambassador at propertyambassadors@roers.com. 

If you like what you see regarding how well we treat our residents when they are moving out, you should see the great things residents enjoy when they live with us – check out a Roers property now and ask about taking a virtual tour.

Stay Active & Healthy

Staying active can help with your physical and mental health and there are so many ways that you can continue to stay active at home. So many of us are currently stuck staying at home doing workouts since the fitness centers closed during this time. Its important to take time for yourself to keep you healthy and active.  

Here are a few ideas you can do right from your home: 

  • Online workouts – Many fitness companies are currently offering free online workouts. If you are passionate about group fitness or have participated in group fitness before your gym was closed, you can join a Zoom workout or find a workout on YouTube! Simply search your favorite type of workout and you will find a long list to choose from. For a lot of home workouts, you won’t need to use fitness equipment, but you can also find great alternatives at home. You can use soup cans for weights, a chair for triceps dips, there are so many great alternatives out there!  
  • If you weren’t into working out before you had to stay at home, you still need to make sure you are keeping your body moving. Try setting a reminder on your phone and try one of these activities 1)every 30 minutes you walk up and down your stairs, 2) each time your phone rings you must do a push up or even a jumping jackDo a wall sit during that long daily conference call. 
  • Another way to keep your body healthy is to stretch and meditate. Finding ways to calm your mind and reach for your toes may be a great way for you to stay active. Stretching before you start your day and before bed is just enough to keep blood flowing, prevent injury or chronic pain and increase your flexibility!  

Staying inside right now is hard but so important. Staying active and focusing on your physical and mental health will make it so much easier. Keep up the good work and do the things that your body needs, it will thank you in the long run. Get as creative as you need to just make sure that you are getting your body moving throughout the day!

Be on the Watch for Covid Scams

There are many warnings out that scammers are out in full force taking advantage of the COVID-19 pandemic. The Federal Trade Commission (FTC) reports that Americans have lost almost $13 million in COVID-19 related scams so far. Unfortunately that number will likely increase. 

Some important tips to be sure to follow during this time:

  • Watch for phishing emails or websites asking for personal or financial information.
  • Ask questions if you receive a suspicious phone call
  • When dealing with stimulus checks, be sure to only communicate with the IRS if needed. Nothing needs to be done on your end so be sure to not sign up for anything.

For more information on the current scams, please visit https://www.consumer.ftc.gov/features/scam-alerts. To report a scam, visit ftc.gov/complaint

Here is a helpful document with other tips and scam information to protect yourself from some known scams.

Cape At Savona Still on Track

The Cape at Savona Point in Florida is still moving forward with construction. We visited with Matt Nygard, Project Manager with Roers Development, to get an update on the project during this unique time.

How is leasing currently being done?

All leasing is being conducted virtually.  When we receive leads, we respond to each lead with a phone call to identify specific needs and wants. Then we email them a digital brochure and schedule a time for a virtual tour. We can provide a Facetime tour if the prospect has capability or videos delivered via email. 

What safety precautions are being done at the construction site?

CDC guidelines are being followed at the site. In addition, there are multiple hand washing stations and facilities are being thoroughly cleaned multiple times a day. All trades are required to wear masks and rubber gloves 100% of the time while on site.  Anyone working together must stay 6 feet apart at all times.   

Have the construction completion dates been adjusted?

We are still on track for our original target date for move in by May 1, 2020. The Clubhouse and Building One are the first two buildings that will be completed.
