Your building doesn't have to be constructed in the past five years to be modern and engaging with residents and perspective residents. Modern spaces at your property will help you stay competitive in a changing landscape.
As Valentine’s Day comes near, it’s time to start thinking about ways to tell your community: “We love that you lease with us!’’ Being a property manager comes with many responsibilities; you keep the property in good shape, collect rent and sometimes even plan events.

As we inch closer and closer to the new year residents of Northern Virginia and New York anxiously await to see what will happen once their new neighbors move in. It's still unclear how and exactly when Amazon is going to move into its Northern Virginia campus, but one thing is certain: people are stressed. Keep calm because we're going to dive into how the megacorp could impact the DMV area.
Central Florida is a quickly growing region. In fact, it’s growing so quickly that meeting its
housing needs would require the equivalent of a new 330-unit multifamily building each week.
As part of its growth, it also has one of the country’s newest passenger rail lines – SunRail, a
47-mile commuter rail line that traverses exurban, suburban, and downtown areas. It adds a
transportation option for thousands and opens up opportunities for Central Florida to have true
transit-oriented development (TOD) to address our housing issues as well.
We hopped on the HQ2 train recently and wrote about how Amazon's new homes could benefit the public transit systems for both Queens and Crystal City (which was recently renamed National Landing). There are many moving parts outside of public transportation — traffic mitigation, local shops, and affordable housing, to name a few. One of the bigger questions looming over these two towns is: What will Amazon mean for the housing market?
It's the most wonderful time of the year, right? Ignoring the cold gusts of air and random freezing rain showers, I think most of us would agree. What's great about this time of the year for property managers is that you can show your residents, tenants, or guests that you care about creating a community — and we know just how you can do it!
