Residents Benefit Package

Being a Voepel resident has its benefits! Generally, property management companies have the same requirements when it comes to their lease (insurance, filter changes, utilities, rent paid on time, etc). With the Residents Benefits Package, we’ve taken these requirements and bundled them together for your convenience. We pride ourselves in the level of care we provide to our properties and residents and are excited to give the following benefits, automatically included in your lease and payable with rent at $25/month.

  • HVAC air filter delivery directly to your door approximately every 90 days
  • Utility concierge service: one call sets up your utility services, cable, and internet
  • A resident rewards program that helps you earn rewards for paying your rent on time
  • Credit building to help boost your credit score with timely rent payments
  • $1M Identity Protection for all adult leaseholders
  • 24/7 online maintenance coordination
  • Home buying assistance for when the time is right to buy your “forever” home
  • Online portal: Access to your account, documents, communication, and payment options

The above is subject to mechanicals and other limitations. The total monthly cost of the Resident Benefits Package is all-inclusive, and no discounts will be given if any element of the package is unavailable due to a lack of HVAC or another limitation at a specific property.
