Lessons learned from 30+ years in Property Management: City Gate Property Group
Dawn Waye is President of Dallas/ Fort Worth based City Gate Property Group third party property apartment management. G. Patrick Smits is the CEO. Both have deep knowledge of managing in the “B & C – workforce housing” space. They currently manage over 10,000 units. Dawn & Pat share some ideas on what the ‘biggest bang for the buck’ will get you as an apartment investor. Dawn shares the ‘4 P theory’ for successful property management. 1) People- Are the onsite people they engaged with your success? 2) Price- Are you getting the best price for materials and labor? 3) Product- Do you have a good idea on what other properties in your submarket are charging in rent for their amenities? 4) Promotion- How are you driving new tenants to the property? Social media? Active marketing?
Michael asks Dawn and Pat about surviving a future down turn in apartment investing.
