The Importance of Property Inspections in Management & Acquisition of Rental Real Estate

1:30 PM - 2:15 PM

Speaker

Knowledge is power.  As a manager, perhaps it is the power to document the property and its needs before an issue becomes a liability. As an owner, it is the power to make maintenance decisions based upon known facts, or to project future capital costs. In the acquisition phase it is the power to negotiate.  Thorough, unbiased inspections are a critical component of proper investing strategy.

A Vacant Opportunity

3:00 PM - 3:45 PM

Speaker

  • Shkelqim Kelmendi, Executive Director, Housing Connector

 

What should the role of the rental housing community be in addressing the housing and homelessness challenges? Housing Connector, which is a part of the Seattle Metropolitan Chamber, believes that the rental housing community must have a part in the solution, but that role must make business sense. That is why Housing Connector is taking a new approach to tackling our biggest challenge by putting property owners and managers as the primary customer.
Our mission is to partner with property owners and managers throughout King County to lower barriers and increase our region’s housing capacity. We believe that when a unit sits vacant, it is not only a financial loss to a property owner, it is also a loss for our community. ​Within that scenario lies an opportunity to build bridges and find common ground.
