What lies ahead for the property management industry?

We’ll give you a little hint: things look GREAT.

Steve and his team have invested countless hours crunching the numbers—we’ve already shared REAL Trends’ 2016 rental housing demographics report and property management trends with you. In this informative chat, Steve digs even deeper, exploring the driving factors behind these industry patterns. He also has a wealth of information on how to grow your business and even shares a few tips for a revolutionary prospecting opportunity you didn’t even know existed.

Steve reveals the following mind-boggling numbers:

  • Home ownership rates have fallen from 69 to 63 percent in the past decade—that figure represents some 6 million households.
