StateHouse Tallahassee, GRO

When 908 Group came to Asset Living to manage the lease-up of StateHouse Tallahassee, the market was oversaturated with many other “brand-new” properties. Asset Living rose to the challenge by changing the name of the game of this 604-bed community with 138 total units. The key was to differentiate the properties’ digital presence and implement new marketing tactics. Through Asset Living’s lease-up efforts in 2020-2021, the team successfully leased both StateHouse Arena and StateHouse Varsity to 100% pre-lease and achieved 100% occupancy at both sites. Despite having the highest rates in the market, the StateHouse properties become some of the biggest competitors in Tallahassee.

Investing creatively and strategically in a digital marketing program paired with an experienced onsite team propelled the StateHouse Tallahassee properties to stand out in a crowded space within a highly competitive market. It was the collaborative relationship between Asset Living's lease-up team and our digital partner that resulted in StateHouse Tallahassee not only receiving the industry recognition it deserved at the 2022 Innovator Awards during the InterFace Student Housing Conference, but also the highest pre-lease in the market with little to no turnover. I couldn't be prouder of all parties involved, and I'm excited to continue to build on this momentum with our teams for our clients!"
