Jason, I think you and your wife have the right idea. Many of us forget or have never experienced what it feels like to BE the renter. Even if you have the Air Max Hyperfuse Red
best maintained property at the fairst price, there will be a time when the tenant feels misused or neglected. If that $25 gift package makes them feel like they Nike Air Max 95 Ultra Jacquard Men's
I have rented several places in the past and can speak as a tenant and say a gift of some sort would not change my Air Max 95 Qs mind at all about the landlords. If they were providing superb service I would say that is on par, if they are not I would take it as they are trying to bribe me in lieu of doing what I am actually paying rent for. Help folks feel like they renting a home, not just another unit. If a $25 gift basket prevents or minimizes one future issue, Its very much worth it. No way to quantify that on the tally books though.
This is keeping in mind that the tenant mentality in certain areas is one that thinks that instant tax refunds are amazing and worth paying 10% for in return for getting them a week ahead of time, if you get my drift
I see your point but still think it is unnecessary. As a landlord I will make them feel like they are renting a home by always treating them with respect, getting to know them when possible, working with them to quickly fix any issues they may have, letting them know that I am available when they have any questions and concerns, and providing a comfortable place to live in.

We give all of our tenants a move in packet mostly with informational numbers (cable, fire, utility, police, etc) and a bunch of local businesses have coupons put in their packet as well. We also put in flyers for insurance agents that offer renters insurance, this is a big thing that tenants often overlook.
The only time I purchased a tenant a move in gift was when I had a returning tenant come back to be my renter. I bought her a small potted plant with a mylar balloon that said, "Welcome Home".
The only thing I give to new tenants is an information package, like Brandon mentioned, with phone numbers for the local utility companies, instructions for the proper care and feeding of the property, safety information (number and location of smoke alarms, CO detectors, fire extinguishers, etc.). I also give them a certification, basically a signed letter, that the locks have been changed so they need not worry about any previous tenant still holding a copy of the key.
someone a gift will convince them to stay if they were considering moving. "my landlord is sh", even when you do fix what is neccesary.
are appreciated more than on the 1st of the month, I say keep up the good work. You have probably saved yourself numerous headaches you will never hear about!
I agree on the information packet but I think anything else is overkill. If you are providing the proper services to your tenants at the right price and treat them well then you will not have a problem with excess vacancy. I do not see who buying Nike Air Max 95 Collection
You have to think on the tenant level sometimes.
One tip i have found that sometimes works depending on the type of property is a somewhat large gift a bit before lease renewal time. We have given TV etc ($200 $300) two months before a renewal. It often can be an incentive to stay. Even if they were planning to renew anyway they will be most appreciative. That amount may seem excessive, but its a small price compared to vacancy downtime, advertising, etc.
