I am not a professional property manager, but I have worked in the industry providing services to them. I do have my own rental property and would like to acquire more. I've had some kind of link to the industry for about 7 years total. How about you? How long have you been a PM? Thanks for popping by to say hello!
Tammy Benson: Thanks Dee. This is our 4th grandchild. My son in law Jonathan is deployed to Afghanistan until July 2011. We are thrilled to have Lexi and Shelby at our home until daddy returns. We have so much to be thankful for. Everyone keep Jonathan in your prayers.
Hi there, LTPM members and visitors. I've been very interested in watching for future trends in the property management industry. I attended the NARPM® National Convention in Crystal City, VA earlier this month, and observed 5 trends I'd like to share. You can read my full blog article on the LandlordSource website.
Here's the quick list. I'd like to hear your thoughts and observations. Do you see other trends in play? Where do you see the industry heading in the future? I am sure there are many more ways the property management profession will evolve than those I've listed below.
1. The property management industry is growing and maturing.
2. Education is becoming increasingly important to property management professionals.
3. Property managers are getting more interested in using video.
4. Property managers are getting more "social."
5. Property managers are looking for innovations (instead of just tolerating them ;-)).
What do you think?
Thanks for adding the badge to your site. Here are my thoughts on the questions you posed:
- Identifying you as a member of the LTPM community gives website visitors another way to find out more about you and your expertise in the property management industry. In addition to viewing the content you post in your own website and blog, they can see how you respond to questions and participate in conversations in the LTPM community. Visitors can read through the site content - membership is required to participate in the conversations or contribute blogs, videos, etc.
- The badge does have a link to the this site, so it may send some people this way. We invite both professional property managers and landlords to join free of charge. In the same way, your participation in the LTPM community can send people to your site since you can add a link back to your property management company website. When you contribute to LTPM, you can link to related content on your own website or blog that may be useful to other LTPM site visitors and members.
Here is a decent article about backlinks from SEO Moz. Google does like high quality, relevant backlinks - in this case, it can be a win / win situation for you and for the growth of the LTPM community.
Thanks for asking a great question!
