The Unit Types Template contains all the different floor plans the property offers for rent. Each floor plan should be included and named accordingly. If Offices and other administrative units should be included with a market rent of $0.
The sample template is attached at the end of the article. Fields in red are required. Please complete one template for every property listed in your portfolio.
Note: Lets say there are two identical floor plans but they have different market rents: both options need to be included and just named differently. (See row 2, 3, 4 in the image above for reference.)
Name: Choose a unique name for the unit type. Use letters or numbers. 20 character maximum. These names will also coincide with the Units Template.
- For example, if the unit has one bedroom and one bathroom, the name would be 1x1. If the unit has one bedroom had 2 bathrooms, the name would be 1x2.
