Its Moving Time!

Let’s face it moving is not the most fun thing to do. You never know how much stuff you really have until you have to pack it all up to bring it somewhere else. It seems your possessions multiply when you start getting ready to pack. We want to make sure you are geared up with some simple moving tips to help you.

If you are feeling slightly overwhelmed with an upcoming move, we are here to help. The Roers Property Management team are experts when it comes to helping people move in and move out. 

Here are some tips and tricks to get you on the move as stress free as possible.  

  • Boxes! You need so many boxes when you are packing up, and they’re expensive! Don’t go out and buy cardboard boxes. First try your local recycling drop off, you may find all of the moving boxes you need right there. Don’t forget to recycle them (again) when you are done. Some other great places you might find boxes would be, bookstores, liquor stores, and Craigslist, just to name a few!  
  • Heavy furniture? Moving heavy furniture is the hard work! Especially when it isn’t coming with to your new home. Instead of having to haul the heavy furniture yourself to the nearest land fill, call your local donation center. You can schedule a donation pick up with them, they will come and take all the items that you don’t want to move and bring them to donate for you. This will save you so much time and energy on your move plus you are giving back to your local community, way to go!  
  • Declutter as you pack. Packing is a great time to also throw out those odds and ends that you have kept forever but haven’t touched since you put them there. Ask yourself, do I need this in my new home? If the answer is no, don’t bring it! Only pack away what you want to bring, anything else you can donate or toss, that way you are saving time packing, hauling and unpacking!  
  • Organize your boxes! Pack your home one room at a time, this way you can unpack the easiest! Color code your boxes as you pack them, use different colored sticky notes and tape them down as you seal each box. For example, you finished packing your kitchen box, put a green sticky note on top of the box and tape it closed! That way you know green is for the kitchen! 

We are hopful these tips help you when you are busy packing and preparing for a move. We wish you all the best and for a stress-free move! A Roers Property Ambassador is available to help you with more details on additional moving tips, feel free to contact us today.

Rent With Roers

Often on our social media posts, swag items, and other fun stuff we put out into the community, you might see our slogan: “Rent with Roers”. But it’s important to know why we think you should rent with us!

Here are the top 10 reasons to Rent with Roers:

  1. Our Awesome Team – We have a team that goes above and beyond every week to make sure our residents are happy & satisfied. They work incredibly hard to make sure every list is checked and end is tied and they continue to want to learn more and more to become even better at what they do. We are so thankful for them. Roers Property Management wouldn’t be what it is today without the work they’ve done! 
  2. The Amenities – When you think of amenities, what comes to mind? In-unit laundry, fitness center, elevators, walk-in closets, personal bathroom, basketball court, pool table, swimming pool & hot tub, underground parking, free internet, garbage disposal, study rooms? That’s what we think of. And that’s what our Roers properties offer our residents. It’s reason #2 to rent with Roers… because the amenities make all the difference.
  3. The Incentives – Residents have had the opportunity to receive $5,000 cash, a Roomba, a Google Home, a Bose Speaker, Airpods, prize packages, and gift cards to SCHEELS, Target, and tons more. We love getting to do this for our residents. It means a lot to us when they choose to live with us!
  4. Your Car will Thank You! – If you’re living in North Dakota, you know how cold it gets…. and you know how *not* fun it is in the morning on your way to work or school to scrape off your car or wait for it to heat up in -45 degree weather. Treat your car better than that! Each of our Roers properties offers either a heated underground parking garage or an attached garage so your car can stay nice and warm during the winter! This is a big reason to rent with Roers.
  5. Resident Events – Our team usually like to put on events for our residents every single month. We held over 300 total events for our residents in 2019! With the pandemic making it hard for us to gather and meet in person, our team has still stayed creative in ways to engage and interact with our residents. It’s one of our favorite parts of what we do.
  6. Living Close to NDSU – Because of our properties’ close proximity to NDSU and the Fargodome… many of our residents are students! It’s convenient to live somewhere that is so close to where you need to go every day. And that’s why it’s reason #6 to rent with Roers. Don’t spend that money on a parking pass when you can just walk instead!
  7. You’ll Make Friends – Sometimes our properties are like little mini communities. When we have our resident events or fun things going on in the building – you might become familiar with your fellow residents or neighbors. Many have made friends though that! 
  8. Ability to Pay Rent Online – Who even has a checkbook anymore, right? When you’re a Roers resident, you don’t really need one because we allow everything to be done online. And many of our properties are all-inclusive – which means you pay one single bill a month for everything. It’s such a nice perk!
  9. 24/7 Maintenance – Reason #9 is a huge one… our maintenance crew! We have a team of guys that are on call basically 24 hours and are there to fix just about anything. We truly couldn’t function without them! We understand things go wrong in units and we have the best team that knows what to do in a short amount of time. We love them!
  10. The Premier Service – The final reason why we think you should rent with Roers… the premier service. Roers strives to provide premier service to each and every resident. It’s part of our culture and who we are. It’s the 9 other reasons all combined. The team, the details, the above and beyond, the connection. All of it is our premier service to you.
