Multifamily Legacy Podcast

Oct 22, 2019

Forestwood Apartments in Slidell, LA, is an amazing property that I purchased. It generated cash flow from the beginning without a lot of work. Terry, the property manager, never went below 97% occupancy for three years. He knew every tenant’s name and got along with them. Then, citing the need for less stress, Terry resigned.

Today, I’m talking about the real stuff of multifamily investing. What you go through, emotions you experience, mistakes you make, and gaining growth from pain. 

Topics on Today’s Episode:

  • Pre-training Process: Managers are deployed, live onsite, and strive for 96 to 100% occupancy 
  • Strategic and Methodical: From cable wires to faded outdoor paint, finish and complete rehab before starting next project
  • Renewal retention rate is how you make money in multifamily investment space
  • Green to Pink: Property went from greater than 95% to 94% in one month
  • New manager not a country boy; occupancy dropped to 82% in second month
  • Who is in charge? Property owner because no one else cares more; be a squeaky wheel to get the grease and fix problems
  • Communicate with Investors: Don’t give good or bad news, just give the news 
  • Property Managers, Investors, Operators, and Owners: Don’t freak out, pay attention, and lead others to prosperity by being calm, focused, and determined
