You have shown vacant apartments to 16 potential renters this week and you have taken 4 applications for these vacancies from those you have toured the property. What is your leasing closing ratio in percentage?

I came up with 4/16= 25%. Is this right? Thank you!

3. No. It's much smaller than that. 48 % is almost half. A 48% vacancy rate would mean that about 60 apartments would be vacant.

6/125 = 0.048
Move the decimal two places to the right. Or multiply by 100.

4. So, would it be: 16/4=4% ??

Or, moving the decimals two places would give me, o.4.8

but since there's an 8 next to the 4, does that number turn the 4 to a 5;therefore being 5% ??. Sorry, for the confusion. I want to learn the steps.

7. Yes. The VACANCY rate is 4.8%.

100 - 4.8 = 95.2%. The OCCUPANCY rate is 95.2%.

You are welcome.
