• Beware of Expensive Real estate.

    To be successful in real estate, you must always and consistently put your clients' best interests first. When you do, your personal needs will be realized beyond your greatest expectations.
  • From Our Real estate to Yours

    Real estate sales was perfect training for the experience to go into public life because you learn to accept rejection, learn to meet new people, learn to work with people and find common ground. That's the way you sell houses... that's also the way you win over constituency.

The National Multifamily Housing Council’s latest Rent Payment Tracker report includes looks at how many renters paid by the end of the month and by the 6th of each month. The data come from its survey of 11.4 million apartment units in the United States.

For the April through August time period in 2020, an average of 95.16% of multifamily households had paid rent by the end of the month. That compares with 96.54% in 2019, a difference of 1.38%.

When viewing who had paid by the 6th of each month, the averages are farther apart. In 2019 during the same time period, 81.08% had paid by the 6th. In 2020, the average is 78.82%.

One caveat to paid-by-the-6th set
