FAA APTitudes Newsletter
October 2018 | The monthly e-newsletter of the Florida Apartment Association
What's New in the FAA
Jeff Lowry, Chairman of the National Apartment Association, swore in the 2018-2019 FAA Executive Committee. 
FAA recently completed research on average compensation and benefits for multifamily professionals across Florida and within each of its 10 local affiliate regions. 
A cap on tax assessment increases for certain properties — including apartment communities — is scheduled to expire unless voters pass Amendment 2 on the ballot in November. The Florida Apartment Association supports Amendment 2, which would make permanent a 10 percent cap on increasing the taxable value of non-homestead properties. Non-homestead properties include multifamily and other rental properties, as well as businesses. For more information, click "Learn more" or visit https://everybodyisfor2.com/
