Dupre & Scott Video Report :Can you handle the truth about apartment rents?

Can you handle the truth about apartment rents? The average apartment rent in Seattle rose 8.3% in the past year. That’s a lot. No doubt about it. It beats inflation. It beats wage growth. So some in the media and special interest groups take to calling this a problem of skyrocketing rents, a crisis, an emergency. Is it really? Let’s take a look.

ASK THE SECRET SHOPPER: Maintenance

The importance of teamwork can not be overstated or emphasized enough. Yet sometimes boundaries are so clearly drawn regarding the role or “job description” of each staff member, that those who desire to “go the extra mile” are forced to remain at the starting line and watch prospects and residents “fall through the cracks.”

I was recently asked the following question which brings up the issue of maintenance and leasing staffs getting involved with each others’ job duties:

Q: Is it appropriate for maintenance staff members to get involved in the leasing process and how far should they go?

A: This is a very important subject, and it brings up another question: Is it appropriate for leasing/office employees to get involved in some aspects of maintenance and how far should they go?

Tenant Screening – Between a Rock and a Hard Place

Landlords are truly caught between a rock and a hard place when it comes to tenant screening.

The Rock
A failure to adequately screen prospective residents can have a devastating impact on the bottom line – NOI & equity.

Further, there is a well-established duty to exercise care in screening prospective residents. A failure to do so has resulted in disaster – followed by substantial civil penalties.

The Hard Place
There has never been a more hostile legal and regulatory environment when it comes to tenant screening.
