New property might be available soon. The current tenant is trying to keep his job. If he succeeds he will sign another 4 year lease. If he loses his job this winter, there is a family waiting to sign another 4 year lease . . . If only we managed the White House!
We just returned from the 24th Annual Convention of the National Association of Residential Property Managers (NARPM
) held in Washington D.C. The association celebrated their 24th convention anniversary during the event while the various general sessions emphasized professionalism and leadership by example. Workshops offered current attendees information to help residential property managers keep abreast of the latest developments in the industry. Suppliers and vendors were also present with samples of goods and services for improving the management of property.
"The NARPM Annual Convention is a great way to keep up with current trends and changes in our industry and to locate products helpful for efficient property management and professional development
" said Clint Collins. "We have been using video more in our marketing efforts. After learning some new techniques in D.C. our tenants and owners are going to see even more reliance on video for inspections and marketing vacancies." Workshop topics ranged from the latest trends in social networking to ethics to managing effective and profitable teams. As always there was a strong emphasis on the NARPM designation program in residential property management. Members of our staff in St. George and Salt Lake, UT and also in our Idaho Falls office are working on their designations and education in the property management industry.
Over 600 individuals were in attendance at the annual event. There are over 3,700 members of NARPM, the nation's only professional organization dedicated exclusively to enhancing the professionalism and ethics of the residential property management industry.
