Does (Market) Size Really Matter?
Executive
The rental housing industry is in the midst of an up-cycle. In that time, rents have risen significantly, occupancies have remained high and the development of new supply nationwide has reached nearly unprecedented levels.

What can we expect moving forward?
 
Learning Objectives:
  • Describe and understand differences in recent rental housing performance by market size.
  • Identify areas of potential opportunity for future investment.

Making the Mark with Property Performance Benchmarking

Performance benchmarking is a hot-button topic for apartment owners and operators. However, benchmarking approaches shouldn’t reflect a one-size-fits-all perspective, as they vary from Class A product to Class B assets to Class C properties. Learn from a diverse group of community owners and operators as they discuss key metrics they track in their portfolios and strategy and operations adjustments they make based on the movement of those indicators.
 
Learning Objectives:
  • Understand key metrics to track across your portfolio and actionable steps to take based on results.
  • Learn how to derive the most from your data and stay ahead of your competition.
  • Understand how certain categories of expenses vary by asset class, market and other factors.

Expanding to Canada: Critical Considerations for U.S. Investors and Operators

Expanding a rental operation to Canada may at first blush seem a straightforward endeavor for U.S.-based organizations, but despite all the similarities between the two countries, key differences in rental laws, resident expectations and preferences, fair housing regulations, employment law, health care and benefits, and a slew of other areas, make the initiative far more complicated.  
 
Learning Objectives:
  • Learn the key factors for rental housing investment and operations in Canada that differ from the United States.
  • Learn the key factors that differ across Canadian provinces.
  • Learn the process for returning profits, or capital gains, to the U.S.
