Open Letter To Parents
Dear Venice Properties Parents,
We are parents too. There is no better way to say it than that. As a campus rental property company run by people with kids still years away from college, we are already working on our speeches to our children that will teach them how to identify a truly great landlord once they (tearfully!) move out. Here is what we want our kids to believe right alongside us: Who you rent from is more important than where you live… and one simple, but profound, commitment makes all the difference...Safety.
From our most northern campus location, to all of our townhomes on south campus, every home has a vast array of safety features. Every bedroom has its own smoke detector in addition to smoke detectors just outside every bedroom for early smoke detection. Every floor of every home has CO detectors and fire extinguishers, and every 2nd and 3rd floor bedroom is equipped with a fire escape ladder in the case of an emergency. Our townhomes have bedrooms in the basement where we installed fire-escape egress windows. This was a costly investment, but well worth the safety it provides to our residents who live in those bedrooms. Finally, we have dusk-to-dawn exterior lights to deter prowlers, and also offer forced-entry alarms for all exterior doors. Our main goal is to ensure your kids feel safe from the moment they move in, until the day they move out.
Our commitment to safety has received praise from the OSU off-campus housing excellence program as they have inspected every home we own, and have honored us with a perfect score of 6 out of 6 buckeyes for every single property. You can view all of our reports here: Housing Excellence Reports. We want you to know that there is no higher priority than your child’s safety, and we have always made the financial and organizational commitment to bring this to life every day.
While we offer a routine inspection of every home to ensure all our safety standards are fully operational, know that even more than that, we are a dynamic company who truly cares about you and your family, and have consistently proven this as true through how we have cared for our residents for many years now, and many more years to come.
