Bonus for Bucks Landlords
Part of the Bucks Landlord Incentive Program (BLIP)
Bonus for Bucks Landlords is offering several types of incentives to landlords and realtors who participate in the Housing Link’s fight against housing insecurity by leasing units to tenants who are Housing Link program participants.
New to working with Housing Link programs? Get a bonus equal to one month of rent when you lease up a Housing Link program participant.
Landlords and Realtors can refer a landlord to the Housing Link. If that landlord leases up with a Housing Link program participant, you get a $2,000 finder’s fee.
The Housing Link offers payments of up to one month in between leases when you rent to Housing Link program participants.
Real estate agents are key partners in helping the Housing Link connect with new landlords as they are particularly well equipped to educate and assist their investor clients with information about this program and the benefits the event offers as part of a healthy investment portfolio.
The Housing Link’s Bonus for Bucks Landlords Event is part of the Bucks Landlord Incentive Program (BLIP), designed to foster increased partnerships between landlords, realtors, and the Bucks County Housing Link. The Bonus for Bucks Landlords Event has a goal increasing landlord partners by 21% in 2021.
The Bonus for Bucks Landlords Event runs now through January 31, 2022.
Goal: 180 Landlords
