What Property Managers Can Learn from the New ‘Bachelor'

ABC finally announced who will be their new Bachelor—Arie Luyendyk Jr., a race car driver and former Bachelorette runner up from 2012. But, why am I telling you this? Of course you've been obsessively checking Twitter for days and watching Bachelor in Paradise to play amateur detective and getting into heated debates with your spouse about the merits of Eric (his suggestion, an OK one) vs. Dean (who knocked himself out after his treatment of poor Kristina) vs. Jack Stone (just me?), right? (Apparently I've come a long way since I've been a The Bachelor apologist, and learned some property management tips from it nonetheless.)

 

And it's a fine(?) decision. I don't know. I didn't watch the show in 2012, so I'm not familiar with him. I do know that it allows ABC to use all sorts of car puns in their marketing, so that's good. (There's no way they're going to get through the whole season without a: "Ladies, start your engines." I'm totally calling it now.)

Students are told this from the beginning, but somehow, it amazes me every year when some distraught...
The biggest misconception of Student Housing is that the students who rent in our communities understand what they are doing because they don’t. Students often look at living off campus as an extension of dorm life and many do not really appreciate the difference until there is a problem. Even parents, in many cases, labor under this delusion. Let’s get one thing straight. Just because your student is living off campus, does not necessarily mean he is living independently. Since most Studen...
Property management professionals have to maintain successful relationships with a variety of people: fiduciary relationships with owners, tenant relations, and vendor relations. Relationships with vendors are arguably as important as having a good relationship with one’s owners because we rely on vendors so heavily during the course of our business. Instead of writing a ‘self-help’ article geared for the property management professional (which there are plenty), I decided to focus on that vendo...
