WHY ARE “RENTS” SO IMPORTANT TO YOU AND YOUR BROKER?

<p align="center"><strong><em>WHY ARE &ldquo;RENTS&rdquo; SO IMPORTANT TO YOU AND YOUR BROKER?</em></strong></p>

<p align="center"><strong><em>TIPS for Increasing Rents</em></strong></p>

<p>During the last twelve years of apartment brokerage with the Kasten Long Commercial Group in metro Phoenix, I have brokered plenty of apartment buildings- typically between 10 - 100 units. Most of these are older, &ldquo;B&rdquo; and &ldquo;C&rdquo; class communities. I&#39;ve also had the opportunity to own, renovate, manage and sell some apartments of my own along the way.&nbsp; That&rsquo;s been a real help in understanding challenges owners face with management.&nbsp;</p>

Increased Demand for Rental Housing Drives Global Residential Real Estate Investment Trusts

Key profitability ratios such as return on equity and EBITDA margins expected to witness an increase

MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif., Jan. 14, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Higher interest rates, rising house prices, better employment ratios, and reluctance to own houses due to prior foreclosures, are pushing up the demand for rental housing. This is opening up opportunities for residential real estate investment trusts (REITs) globally. Rent growth and decreasing vacancy rates will further boost the profitability of REITs.

New analysis from Frost & Sullivan, Global Residential REIT Industry, based on a study of 108 REITs, reveals the market earned revenues of $23.23 billion in 2012. Key profitability ratios such as return on equity and earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization (EBITDA) margins rose in 2012, and this trend is expected to continue.
