Let’s Maximize Value, Shall We?

Managing, listing and selling multifamily apartments is a lot easier in the ‘up’ market we’ve enjoyed over the past three to five years. Interest rates and cap rates were at historic lows, the demand for apartments was high, rents moved up, concessions disappeared, occupancies remained high for extended periods of time and many properties had waiting lists for available units. When the market shifts as a result of higher interest rates, and subsequent inflationary pressures, along with the possibility of a recession, there is something of a ‘reset’ across the board.
Many believe that rental rates have plateaued in most markets. Many residents are staying put vs. seeking an upgraded property. Concurrently, managers must now work harder to effectively manage both revenue and expenses. In this cooling-off period, there are many ways by which owners and managers can stive to maintain or improve property values. Addressing deferred maintenance and capital expenditure items are two of them. Resident relations are also critical at this time and is something I’ve preached to every owner/client who would listen.
