Now that’s a title that should make all property managers very curious. Actually it’s the title of a webinar that was offered on Thursday May 9, 2013 and can be listened to at this link. These free webinars and podcasts should be a regular part of a property managers’ month. Searching for the tried-and-true practices of experienced property managers who know how to operate a successful business can save you a fortune in unnecessary mistakes, time and financial losses. Please read that sentence again and reconsider how important it is to invest time learning these secrets.
Having been a real estate investor and property manager myself, I know that we reach a point in our careers where it’s easy to become complacent and rest on our laurels. You know the old saying, “Just when you think you’ve figured it all out you set yourself up for a rude awakening.” Put another way, it’s the trap you don’t see that bites you, not the ones you’re used to looking for and dealing with. One mistake, one oversight of a local ordinance change or some other obscure regulation, can set you back for months. That’s why I also encourage property managers to keep up on the laws.
