Chief Product Officer at SmartRent

Spot On - Ancillary Income Through Sophisticated Parking Management Technologies: 

Multifamily operators have long struggled with managing parking on at community. Looking at it as ways to generate ancillary income – and while the potential is there – the thought of having to implement that becomes almost too much to bare. But times have changed and the savviest of operators have reinvented the parking wheel by leveraging cutting-edge and fully integrated sensors, access control and interactive mapping technologies. Today they are effectively monetizing guest and visitor parking while more efficiently managing community parking overall. This session will discuss how operators are implementing parking management, generating ancillary income, while also improving the resident / community relationship through improved parking assignments, tracking and disrupt resolution.

TV and Radio Have Gone Digital – What Does That Mean for Apartment Marketing?

TV and radio have never been viable advertising mediums for multifamily. Big radiuses, poor targeting, expensive minimum buys, and limited attribution made for too much waste. Now the evolution of geofencing is here in the form of streaming TV and audio. Hyper-target prospects touring competitors or website visitors with a video commercial on channels like Discovery or an audio message on apps like Spotify. And the best part? With cross-device matching, you can measure how many people convert on your website or visit your property.

Navigating the Mass Coastal Exodus with Technology

As more and more Americans continue migrating from primarily coastal cities, apartment owner/operators in non-coastal, urban areas have experienced an influx in residents looking for new apartments. Proptech is making life easier for residents moving to new cities, and prospects now have more accessible visuals, like virtual tours and interactive maps, to help with their transition and create a seamless leasing experience, even if it’s site-unseen. This type of technology allows residents and prospects to better visualize their new home, get a detailed sense of exactly where they’d live and answer all the questions they’d normally seek out during an in-person tour. Virtual tours and interactive maps provide crucial information to prospects, like where the apartment is located within the community, proximity to amenities, unit measurements, how much available units cost and what the surrounding neighborhood looks like. Prospects can plan if all their furniture will fit into a space, what direction the unit faces, how far the unit is from parking and what’s outside the windows. Leasing site-unseen is a reality for many people moving away from the coast, and new innovative proptech solutions are changing the game by painting a full picture of communities to the point where prospects already know what they’re getting and don’t have to be physically present to understand. New proptech is providing a better leasing experience for prospects and allowing leasing teams to better capture leads from residents moving to a new city or state, as prospects are more likely to sign a lease when they have a full understanding of what they’re getting. This session will discuss what the mass coastal exodus means for capturing leads from residents looking for new non-coastal homes and why innovative technology that streamlines and supports leasing journeys is an opportunity that owner/operators should not miss.

Reputation Management Can be Easy with the Right Tools

For any business, large or small, online reputation is always top of mind. This is particularly true in consumer experience-driven industries like real estate and property management. Your online reputation needs to be polished and professional and also resourceful and reliable. And, to achieve all that, you need the right tools and technology in place. 

In today’s environment, most of us do diligent research online before making any significant purchase decisions, especially if it involves the place we call home. Plus, with 85% of residents indicating that their leasing decisions are influenced by online ratings and reviews, it is even more important to have positive online reviews. 

This session will discuss how the right reputation management tools can help property management companies monitor, protect, and improve their company’s online reputation to stay ahead of the competition.

How Do Your Residents Feel about Pets … and What Does that Mean for Ancillary Revenue?

The data is clear: apartment residents generally don’t support breed and weight restrictions. And non-pet owners aren’t hostile to the idea of dogs and cats in their communities. This allows multifamily operators to truly lean into being pet-friendly and to think of pets as a source of ancillary revenue. This session will explore residents' overall comfort with pets at their properties and outline the pet amenities that will attract and retain residents. It will also detail the ancillary revenue opportunities presented by pets and discuss the need for a scalable process to thoroughly review assistance animal accommodation requests so that operators aren’t losing pet revenue to fraudulent requests.

Flex Into the Future: Combining Traditional and Flexible Rentals in a Single Platform to Improve Building Performance

The popularity of fully furnished flexible rentals has exploded in recent years - many renters now look for fully furnished apartments for days, weeks, or months at a time. In the last few years, STR companies emerged that typically master leased space within apartment communities, operating independently from traditional property management companies. As this growing space within the multifamily industry matures, traditional and STR operators are now beginning to work together more directly to manage all building residents - whether they want to stay for weeks, months, or years. In this session we will discuss the pros and cons of this approach in comparison to the STR master lease model for building owners, residents, and management companies.

Why Cash Isn't King for Property Owners 

Cash deposits are costing property owners key opportunities for growth. Recent NMHC data shows that rent prices per square foot are higher than ever, and cash security deposits still average at least one month’s rent — all while the average household income remains stagnant.

  • The rising renter interest in faster, more convenient digital conveniences  

  • The precious hours that owners are saving by going cash-free
