*Part I: Tentative Bill Review
Did you know that renter advocates and their Reps and Senators blame landlords for an over-regulated market? They want to further prevent us from selling our properties to our children, charging market rents, or evicting the worst tenants, against whom witnesses are required in court. We'll review bills called "tenant opportunity to purchase," rent control, and just cause eviction pending speaker availability and audience interest. We'll look at the actual bill text and see what they're proposing and what problems they're trying to solve.
*Part II: Ways to Make More Money with Existing Properties
When you can't buy a new property, is your income maxed out? Maybe not. For "Ways to Make More Money with Existing Properties,", we'll be presenting the best tips and tricks we've learned from talking with hundreds of landlords over the years for offering a higher level of service and earning more. We'll start with easy stuff like knowing your water pressure (you do know your water pressure, right?) and work up from there. A major portion of the presentation will be strategies for negotiating higher rent with applicants other landlords might unfairly reject. We'll end with guidance on leaving paper checks behind and going digital with online rent collection that fits tenants' income patterns, avoids overdraft, and helps your renters build credit. Don't miss these strategies for improving your bottom line by doing right. Real estate is a great way to build wealth over time by doing more for others.
This segment will be presented by Doug Quattrochi, Executive Director of MassLandlords, Inc. MassLandlords members represent the experience of tens of thousands of rental units, and each presentation a new idea comes up that gets worked into subsequent presentations. Come prepared to learn some great ideas but also please think about what you want to share with the room. Together we'll make this a meeting our balance sheets and the Commonwealth's housing stock will thank us for.
