RentTrack Online Payment Announcement
8/27/2018

We are excited to announce our new partnership with RentTrack. Starting Monday, Perry Reid is rolling out a new and improved online payment service with RentTrack! It's more than just convenient,  with RentTrack you can opt-in to build credit with your rental payment history, which has been proven to help residents improve their credit scores by an average of 51 points!

 

Beginning September 1st, 2018 all residents will be able to start making payments through their unique property website. If you are already making online payments, or have re-occurring payments set up through rentpayment.com, RentTrack will replace this service. We plan to have everyone switched over to RentTrack effective October 31, 2018.

 

If you currently use RentPayment.com and have an email on file with us, RentTrack will be sending you an invite. Look for your invite from RentTrack for instructions on getting set up. You should see an email from team@renttrack.comor no-reply@renttrack.com sometime this coming Monday, the 27th.  If you do not receive an email, please check your spam or junk folder.  Until then, take a look at the benefits:

 

  • Pay by E-Check for Free of Credit Card for 2.75% 
  • Set-up one-time or reoccurring payments
  • Building and monitoring your personal credit score
  • Get support by text, e-mail, chat, or phone

 

If you are not currently enrolled you have the ability to access RentTrack from each of our property websites. Visit Perryreid.com search for your property then click on “Pay Rent” which will redirect you straight to the Rent Track website so you can set up your account and begin making your monthly online payments, and view your account history.

 

If you need any support setting up your payment next week, you can contact RentTrack support in one of three ways:

  • CHAT: There is a built-in support chat box on the bottom right hand corner of every RentTrack web page.  You can access the RentTrack web pages via the invite emails or by clicking the link on the PerryReid.com website for your community.
  • EMAIL: You can message support directly at help@renttrack.com, just please identify yourself as a Perry Reid resident.
  • PHONE: You can call (866) 841-9090 and press extension 2 for support in English or Spanish.  Note that you will receive expedited service if you mention that you are a Perry Reid resident and provide the name of your community.

 

We apologize in advance for any inconvenience this transition may cause in the beginning. Perry Reid Properties wants to offer the best service possible to our residents, and we believe that making this switch will aid us in doing so. We know you can choose to live anywhere, so to all of our residents we value you and thank you for choosing to live with us.

URGENT RentPayment Changes

Residents,

Thank you for visiting our Perry Reid Website for this Urgent Communication. Our partners at Rentpayment.com sent out a communication to users on September 22nd, requiring full billing addresses for the paying party to be entered when making a payment. If you do not have a full billing address in RentPayment.com by December 15th, 2017, you will start seeing rent payments fail.

For instructions on how to update billing addresses, please reference this guide.

If you have any questions, please reach out to the leasing team at your property or you can contact AccountManagement@YapStone.com directly.

We thank you greatly for your cooperation in this matter.

Small Patio Design Ideas
8/7/2017

Are you a bargain hunter? Well summer is almost over and now is the perfect time to start focusing some attention on our outdoor space. Stores are clearing out their summer inventory to bring in the back to school merchandise so let's go over some great tips that can make the perfect outside space. 

Your patio or balcony should be an extension of your home, it's the perfect spot to entertain friends or enjoy a meal.

Bring Your Indoors Out...Treat your outside environment much like you would your indoor environment, but have more fun with colors and prints than you might typically inside. Be comfortable with lounge pillows and furniture. They make so many colors and prints in weatherproof options now. 

Drink Station... All I can think about when I hear "Drink Station is Chris Janson's new song "Fix a Drink!" How cute of an idea is this Fold-Down Murphy Bar from ThisOldHouse? In honor of the drink station... and next time you fix your friends a drink you can hmm this little tune in your head.

I can fix a drink, pour it on ice
Mix it on up and get'cha feeling right
I can get'cha buzzed, I can get'cha smiling
I can make you feel like you're sitting on an island
I can make it fruity or I can make it strong
All you gotta do is tell me what you want
Put it to your lips, take a little sip
Tell me what you think, yeah
I can fix a drink

Lighting... Lighting is a must, rope lighting, holiday lighting, let your let your imagination wonder. Your lighting will set the mood for your space. Just remember no live or real candles.

Veggie Garden... Create a small garden whether for veggies or just for potted plants or flowers. This brings life and color to your space. They have great planter options from hanging, to trellis, did you know they have over the edge balcony pots? The options are endless. If you liked the clay hanging pots in the picture above, (here) is the DIY link to that tutorial. You may want to include a Lemon grass plant to naturally detour insects like mosquitos.

Statement Rugs... Outdoor rugs are usually cheaper to purchase than indoor rugs and especially at this time of year. Add Color and patters to our outdoor space with a simple addition of an outdoor rug, which is great for defining or adding character to a space. Hobby Lobby has been known to carry outdoor rugs once in a while at great prices.
