SWAT those Foreclosures

"Prevention, Intervention and Stabilization," that is the new slogan for the Milwaukee Police task force assigned to minimize the collateral damage caused by foreclosures. Foreclosures are not only eye sores, but can serve as breeding grounds for criminal activity. In some towns, like Milwaukee, the problem has become significant enough that the Police are getting proactive. This article explains how officers are stepping into the community to provide support where foreclosures are common.

Wake County Apartment Association

As we do the first Thursday of every month, members and guests of the Wake County Apartment Association (WCAA) gathered last night at the Golden Coral on Glenwood Ave. to network, learn and share some laughs. This meeting marked the 29th anniversary of the group which began in March of 1981 (the year I was born).

As the current leader of the group, I was honored that Mr. John Schrader, the original founder, agreed to speak last night. John shared a lot of great tips for those who already manage apartments and also provided some inspiration for those looking to get started. For anyone wanting to learn more about investing in real estate or managing apartments, I encourage you to visit the WCAA web site and check out one of our upcoming meetings.
