    [00:00:04] Billy Keels: As you start to build relationships. Yes. It's great that you can start with meeting someone on. Maybe you're meet in a chat room or a Facebook group or whatever kind of group but eventually you wanna be able to take that conversation offline, 
    [00:00:14] Billy Keels: I'm a big believer. If you wanna develop a relationship you have to be willing to put your money where your mouth is. And so you can develop a relationship up until a certain point, but then eventually you need to get on a plane and show other people that you are interested in. Not only building relationships, but also making investments.

    “Once you put in a managed Wi-Fi system within that property, then you can start layering in all this other really cool technology… which again, that's what residents are looking for.”  - Todd Thorpe
     
    “Managed Wi-Fi needs to be like running water or a light switch. You flip it on and you expect it to work. You don't think about it, right?” - Todd Thorpe

    [00:00:00] Todd Thorpe: You're gonna pay that 20 to $25 per unit, but then you're gonna turn around and charge your resident, maybe $50, $60 per unit, an amenity fee or a tech fee. And then you're going to keep that difference. And that's where you are increasing your NOI and you're generating this ancillary revenue and you're still way below what the retail rate would be for the resident to go out and get internet on their own from the local cable provider or the local phone provider.
    [00:00:48] Sam Wilson: Todd Thorpe is a well respected multifamily veteran with over 30 years of industry experience. Todd, welcome to the show. 
    [00:00:55] Todd Thorpe: Sam, thank you so much, man.

    [00:01:05] Todd Thorpe: Okay, well those are pretty easy questions. So got my start in cable TV probably 30 years ago. So I'm kind of dating myself, right out of college. Started doing public access programming, kind of the, the Wayne's World thing and got into ad sales and then kind of got into sales, direct sales and have spent literally probably 20 years in MDU sales, multifamily sales from, from a telecom technology perspective.
    [00:01:34] Todd Thorpe: And I am in Greenville, South Carolina right now. So got out of the, the cold Northern Illinois, got sick of shoveling snow and move down here and love it.

    Their Company is keeping its cap rate at 2% or 3% annually, depending on the location and asset class. They are starting to look more seriously at A-class assets due to the compressed cap rates.

Multi-family properties are becoming more liquid, which makes it easier for buyers to find and exit these properties.

    [00:00:09] Brian Wagers: If things are slower than expected to let them know what's happening in the market, there's a lot of people are worried about where the market is headed, is it, too hot interest rate changes. So just keeping them updated with educational material on that, I think is important.

    [00:00:00] Jeremy Hans: I think it's more of an issue of where does it kind of fit in the local kind of economy in both size, location, and distance to things that people want to be at. So if you're an RV'er, if you ever RV'ed, you don't necessarily need to be right next to where you're trying to go, but you want to be close and close is relative. It might be an hour. It might be 30 minutes depending what you're looking at. And so, Hey, is there a draw? Is there a reason somebody want to be there? It's it near a major highway? Does it have a water feature and is it a place that I or my family would ever want to visit are kind of the basic criteria that we look at. And if I had better criteria, there'd probably be a lot of more people in this space because there'd be a lot more data, but right now there's not. So I'm making my own and we're making it work.
