Tenant Engagement Considerations

27 June 2019
Leave a Comment

A local attorney, Jeffrey Bennett of Warren Allen, has 20+ years of experience in dealing with tenant and landlord issues in Portland.

He’s written a very useful article on the subject you can download at the link below (right-click to save):

 

<<<Winning Court Strategies_Jun19>>>

 

Whether you’re an owner or manager this article is very useful.  Jeff goes over basics like:

  1. Forms and the need to keep current

  2. Delivery options and timelines

  3. 30-/90-day notices

  4. Filling in forms correctly

  5. For cause notices

  6. Charges, late and partial payments

  7. Preventing mistakes and giving yourself the best case

  8. Deposits, charges and dealing with tenant requests

 

I assure you it’ll be the best (not being over-dramatic) 30 minutes of your time invested in your apartments.

The environment for landlords was difficult and new rules don’t make it easier.  Being knowledgeable is a minimum requirement for successful landlords today.


Portland Apartment Sales – March 19

<<<Portland_Mar19vsMar18_AptSales>>>

 

Highlights:

  • Gross sales dollars March 19 YTD = $367.2M is a 29% DECREASE over March 18 YTD = $515M
  • $/unit March 19 YTD = $178K is a 4% INCREASE over March 18 YTD = $171K.
  • $/SqFt March 19 YTD = $203.44 is a 13% DECREASE over March 18 YTD = $232.77
  • CapRate March 19 YTD = 5.56% is a 6.7% INCREASE over March 18 YTD = 5.21%

The big drop in $/unit and gross dollars is due to NO large (>100 unit) sales.

City of Portland rules are also giving pause to owners.  Pricing is getting hardest hit on new construction (excess of inventory) and older (pre-1927 URM) buildings along with Portland proper.

However, even with pricing pressure there are positive things making apartments an attractive investment:

  • Interest rates are still low and in the low 4% range
  • Rents are still increasing and vacancies are about 5% on average
