We all know change is difficult. Even good change can be stressful, or at least taking some getting used to. For those in multifamily property management, tradition is a fundamental of business. It’s easy to feel locked into a property management software that the company has been using for decades. When processes are already in place, and a hectic day-to-day doesn’t allow time for a giant overhaul, updating software solutions becomes an afterthought, if that.
It’s not always what’s on the inside that counts—curb appeal is essential to attract renters and buyers alike to your property.

Here's a few tips we've curated to help you take advantage of your property's outdoor space.
The millennial generation has surpassed the boomer generation population, and it’s no surprise they have become a driving factor in the growing multifamily sector. Multifamily developments are battling over the latest trends to attract new millennial renters, but in order to successfully attract millennials you need to understand this generation and what they value.
