Imagine this: You’re running specials every week on social media, discounting your two-bedroom, two-bath floor plan below market rent, but still, no one is coming in to lease your two bedroom apartments. What gives?  Is no one interested in living at your community, being close to the local night life, and experiencing the vibe of an urban environment?  No.  That’s certainly not the case. It’s probably because you are ignoring psychographics.
The VAMA 2019 Capital Focus is ready and waiting for your review.  Find out about all the legislation pertaining to apartment management that will take effect on July 1, 2019.
