The article, The Coming Housing Calamity, is written by Robert Steuteville off New Urban Network. He addresses issues like the coming great senior sell-off, rising household sizes, dropping home ownership, and tighter lending standards (accompanied by good graphs). He makes the point that the coming years will be a disaster for homebuilders and home ownership rates will decline, despite an increasing population. For some this is bad news. For apartment owners, landlords and managers that should mean higher rents and lower vacancies.

The next meeting of the Wake County Apartment Association is this Thursday, 4/7/11. Our focus for the meeting will be on pending legislative issues, the biggest of which is House Bill 554 (described in previous post). Cheryl Houseman, Government Affairs Director for the Triangle Apartment Association, will help us understand where the bill stands and what we can do to help push it towards approval. Attorney Norm Praet will also be available to provide details about this bill and some of the other 'hot' legislative news.
For years we have been waiting for some "landlord friendly" legislation ... let's seize the day. Join us Thursday night so we can make our support for this bill heard loud and clear.
