    Ending the Spring Semester with Strong Leasing & Transitioning to Summer Leasing - SHI 0605

    Ending the Spring Semester with Strong Leasing & Transitioning to Summer Leasing - SHI 0605

    Nationwide, student housing pre-leasing is trending behind the numbers from last year.  Mainly because 1st quarter of 2020, classes were wide-open through mid-March.  As colleges begin announcing their intentions for Fall ’21 and the vaccine groups are expanding, the industry is anticipating a late surge in leasing prior to the spring semester ending and likely another big surge in late summer as confidence builds that campuses will be fully open.  In this session we want to provide insight on how leasing teams should be thinking and strategizing as we approach the end of spring and transition into the summer.

    How Management Can Screw-up a Sale -SHI 604

    A lot of private purpose-built student housing communities are expected to be sold in the coming year.  Between the pandemic halting many of the transactions tee'd up for 2020 and a higher number of CMBS loans reaching their 10-year maturity in 2021-2022, there will likely be a record number of transactions this year.

Great understanding of Student Housing

Wes and his team are doing a fantastic job of breaking down different parts of student housing in the most refreshing way possible. They have years of experience and they dive into operations, leasing and marketing and so much more! It really helps anybody from a community Assistant all the way up to Clients or ownership groups. I strongly urge you to listen to this podcast! I love listening to it on road trips and chores around the house! Thanks Wes and Greta for a great product!
