I've always had difficulty expressing what I want. Usually end up writing long flowery emails that don't get my point of view across. Rent review came up - PM (who is otherwise great) recommended a $10 increase from $390 to $400. I pointed out that (very plainly) if we went to $405 we'd still be 5% below market / recent history and that $15 per week has been the increase in past years for this tenant under previous owners. That was it - 2 lines and a "thanks for all the good work this year". Quick, simple and to the point. I don't know if it was due to being nice or due to being direct, but anyway, $260 extra in my pocket this upcoming year. Yay. What are your tips and tricks for getting what you want? What examples do you have for getting wins like this and how did you go about it?
