Rental Revenue Collection and Occupancy Update
Boardwalk Portfolio –
1: % of rental revenue collected for the month as of the last day of each respective month
2: Occupancy as of the first day of each month
Sam Kolias; Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Boardwalk REIT commented:
“Boardwalk’s focus on providing safe and affordable homes has resulted in strong rental collection rates, while our approach of delivering the best product quality, service and experience has resulted in continued improvement in portfolio occupancy.
Our Boardwalk team continues to utilize our lessons learned from the re-engineering of our peak performance culture through the economic volatility experienced in 2016 and 2017 to outperform in an all stages of the rental market as demonstrated by our industry leading growth over the past several quarters, and more recently, the gaining of market share through this current COVID pandemic.
As our local markets begin their economic relaunch, Boardwalk will continue to work with any of our Resident Members who are experiencing financial hardship, and remain committed to ensuring safe homes across our entire portfolio of low-rise, townhome, (approximately 60% of our communities) and mid, high-rise communities (approximately 40% of our communities.) Multi-decade record affordability, and Boardwalk’s brand and product diversification provide an exceptional value proposition for our Resident Members who continue to call Boardwalk home which in turn reward all our stakeholders with high-retention rates and new rentals, positioning the Trust to continue delivering on solid results.
Thank you to our entire peak performance team of Associates who continue to serve our Resident Members with our safe and affordable homes, inspiring us all how to love always. We look forward to sharing full details of our second quarter financial results in mid-August.”
