Giving Thanks

Michael Hodges - Wednesday, November 16, 2016
“He is a wise man who does not grieve for the things which he has not, but rejoices for those which he has.” — Epictetus

As we embrace yet another Thanksgiving holiday season, it is customary to reflect on what we are grateful for.  In 2016, Thanksgiving comes on the heels of a tempestuous period in all our lives that has the potential to diminish our gratitude if we allow it. This is the time to reflect on our blessings- which are abundant! 

Specifically for First Place Management and FPM Properties, we are grateful for our owners and residents and our dedicated vendors who work hard (sometimes on holidays mind you!) and strive to take care of everyone as swiftly as possible.  Some of them will be “on duty” this holiday and possibly not able to travel to be with their respective loved ones in order to be on hand to service emergencies—and we thank them in advance for that! 

We are also grateful for one another—our colleagues. Our team works hard but it’s made all the better because we enjoy working together!

We hope all of our owners, residents and vendors enjoy a holiday filled with the warmth of time spent with loved ones and know that we appreciate them every single day. Happy Thanksgiving to All!

It Really is a Small World

jeannie fredrick - Wednesday, October 05, 2016
On a recent trip to Ireland, Mike Hodges was determined to find time to explore the property management dynamics being experienced in Ireland. While in Galway, he stopped in to a property management office and had a chance to talk briefly with the broker there and it was enlightening to say the least.

This is what he learned and found somewhat surprising:

In a nutshell, they have experienced much of the same trends as we have: low inventory, high demand. Fallout from the 2008 financial crisis. Galway is a college centric rental environment so demand for rental is constant. They also have rent control in place for 2 years per lease. This was instituted to address affordable housing (contain cost/stabilize rents). Once those properties became available again, the rents have escalated exponentially. Additionally, what was traditionally rental housing is being purchased now as primary dwellings. 

Add to this the low to nonexistent new construction and they find themselves in the same soup as we are here in Florida and much of the US overall. This is what he learned in just one specific Irish market but does support the adage: it really is a small world.
