If you own or manage smoke-free apartment homes and would like to be included in the Smoke-free Apartment House Registry on gethealthyclarkcounty.org, please contact us at (702) 759-1270 or email us at

Secondhand smoke seeping into apartments from neighboring units by shared ventilation systems makes playtime, and many other times, dangerous. But you can change all that. Nearly 80% of Nevada’s adult population is non-smoking, and many landlords and property managers in Clark County have acknowledged the growing demand for smoke-free living by restricting smoking in apartments and common areas. This simple act is not only legal, it provides health beneďŹ ts for employees and tenants and decreases maintenance and turnover costs. Remember, when one person smokes, everyone around them smokes too.

Then …It Was Calling from Your Phone. Now…It is Texting from Your Phone. The information highway is cluttered for property managers By Paul R. Bergeron III and modified by Michael Fazio for Apartment Insight. Sec ons of the ar cle digested from: Digested Units Magazine, published by the Na onal Apartment Associa on.

More than 6.1 trillion texts were sent in 2010 and there are an estimated 2.4 billion active users of SMS (short messaging service, the most widely used form of texting), or 74 percent of all mobile phone subscribers worldwide, according to a February release by research firm mobiThinking. In an effort to give their residents what they want, forward-thinking communities are using or considering texting programs for their residents of any age.

The Text Genera on Texting can create issues of concern and strategy for apartment owners. How often should they text? What should they text about? Are there privacy concerns? Should company policy be set about who sends the texts and if and when to reply?

When it comes to delivering the message to residents, some management firms have their fingers, er, thumbs on the situation. Back then, a leasing office visit or a phone call seemed to work just fine for residents. Nowadays, who wants to walk to the office? Heck, who wants to dial from their cell phone? Most of the technology driven generation of today, and even us old fogeys, just want to text. Text to order, text to complain, text to talk. Text, text, text. Sure enough, the rent check arrived within a day. Was the college-age student not getting the message? Maybe. For the manager, even more valuable than getting the rent check was the lesson learned that Generation Y tends to pay more attention to requests made by text.

“It’s weird,” he says. “But this is the way that members of this generation have trained their parents on how to get them to do what they want them to do.” The college students of today are the residents of tomorrow. Texting has grown right along with the number of consumers who spend much of their days with their cell phones in hand. Results from national apartment-resident survey firm SatisFacts show that cell phone (53.9 percent) is neck and neck with e-mail (55.7 percent) as residents’ No. 1 preferred method of communication, according to data released February 2011. More than 11 percent of respondents specifically stated texting as the preferred method, a number that is climbing as SatisFacts only started polling this option in September.

Many apartment management companies have enlisted the help of mobile and text-message service providers or have partnered with their Internet listing service (ILS) partners to develop customized programs that enable automated group and targeted resident tex ting. These blast-tex t ing programs are t he nex t wave in the apartment industry’s use of texting communications. They follow the text-message marketing strategies that communities use for prospective residents via signage and short codes, which were rolled out a few years ago.

Text Me Spend a short amount of time with almost any person under age 30 and you’ll see they don’t spend much time actually talking on the phone, but will often whip out their cell phone to check for text messages and then zip out a reply almost immediately. www.nvsaa.org


Is your company or community changing with the times or are the ell. times going to change right past your leasing office? Only time will tell. payment, social event invites and status updates on things such as deliveries or maintenance work orders.

College-age students’ desire to text was quickly confirmed for Kim Cory, Sales and Marketing Manager, University Village, when her company worked with an ILS’ technology department to build and then implement a text-based communications pilot program called the Mobile Club, at one of its biggest communities at Ohio State.

Lisa Trapp, Director of Marketing, Sequoia Equities, Walnut Creek, Calif., expects text-message communications to be embraced across all demographic segments. “We think demographics are less of a factor, considering most from Generation X and the Baby Boomers have children, nieces or nephews, and employees who already text them,” she says, so those residents are familiar and comfortable with texting.

“When we announced [in the fall] that we have a mobile club, 88 residents out of 2,000 signed up on their own free will,” Cory says. “We didn’t even market it.” Today, more than 500 are participating. Whereas such blast-texting programs are growing, traditional one-on-one, backand-forth texting is much less common at most communities—including student housing. “They’d think it was weird” to receive a text personally from their manager (or owner), says one community manager. There are occasions where one-onone texting works: residents living in one- or two-unit buildings managed by independent rental owners (IROs).

‘Can I Have Your Number?’ A text-message program can only be as good as the number of resident cell-phone numbers a community can collect. Gables Residential, with 60,000 units spread over 140 communities, made a push starting in October to gain e-mail and phone number information. Lynette Hegeman, Vice President of Marketing, Gables Residential, says the company got 70 percent of its residents’ cell-phone numbers. This can include more than

Getting Soaked

Submetering, which traces its roots to Europe in the early par t of the 20th century, is a method that can insulate multifamily operating income from utility rate increases. Converting multifamily housing from owner-paid to resident-paid water expenses protects owners’ bottom lines, promotes conservation and helps stabilize rental rates. Industry studies have documented that water usage drops up to 39 percent when individual submeters are installed in multifamily housing.

With ghtening water quality standards and aging infrastructure driving up water rates around the country, some apartment owners are turning to submetering to protect their bo om line. By Sean Dicks

Annual water rate increases are more than just an inconvenience -- they’re a huge financial burden for multifamily property owners and managers. Municipal water rates are increasing by up to 55 percent in some districts, with an average nationwide increase of 12.9 percent going into 2011. Property owners in Kentucky, for instance, recently experienced a 37 percent rate increase, translating to approximately $10 per household per month. Among the factors causing the increase are the tightening of Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) requirements on water quality and waste distribution in the United States, a growing need to improve crumbling municipal water infrastructures (such as pipes, pumps and treatment plants), and significant declines in water consumption because of the poor economy. The EPA is requiring water authorities to clean up their act. “There are a range of chemicals that have become more prevalent in our products, our water and our bodies in the last 50 years,” said the EPA administrator, Lisa P. Jackson, in a speech to the Association of Metropolitan Water Agencies. The agency is working toward a new -- and stricter -- vision for providing clean, safe drinking water.

According to a study released last year by the American Society of Civil Engineers, leaks in the nation’s water distribution system result in 7 billion ga llons of lost clean dr ink ing water ever y day. Crumbling sewer systems spill billions of gallons of untreated wastewater into the nation’s rivers, streams and lakes. Funding for infrastructure repairs and maintenance is derived in large part from increases in water and sewer rates paid by utility customers. Another factor fueling the increase in water and sewer rates is the economic downturn that began in the fall of 2007. Since then, many municipal water utilities have experienced a decline in water consumption in their districts. The decline is due to overall business contraction, plant closings and increased rates of home foreclosures. The cumulative impact has led many utilities to raise rates in order to cover fi xed operating costs.

Ashton Brooke, a 380-unit community operated by Colonial American Development Cor p., mitigates high water rates in its Greene County, Ohio location with submetering, according to the company’s Vice President, Jon Kostival. “It used to be that water was a free item that people took for granted, but not anymore,” Kostival says. “It’s a hefty charge. Submetering helps in two ways. It helps to defray costs of rate increases that can be passed to residents, but it also helps on the conservation side. When residents are paying their own water bill, they’re more aware and apt to take shorter showers and be less excessive with water in general.” Roger C. Perry and Company, a Mid-west property management firm, has used submetering systems in some properties for more than 25 years, according to Fred Damsen, Chief Operating Officer. “During that period, we’ve seen a 400 percent increase in water and sewer rates,” he says. “In those properties with submetering systems, our budgeting process focuses more on what we can control and lets uncontrollable water expense increases be passed through by our utility billing service. This helps protect our bottom line.” As water rates continue to rise, submetering fights increases by cutting operating ex penses, conser v ing resources and protecting bottom lines.

Defraying the Costs Water rate increases are not going away and, in fact, are expected to grow at near double-digit rates in the foreseeable future, according to some. The question: How do multifamily owners protect themselves from these increases?

one contact number per unit, as often a husband and wife have different cell phone numbers.

“We have a new team member in the office, Angela—if you see her around our community, be sure to say, ‘Hello.’ ”

“For so many renters these days, their cell phone is their home phone,” Hegeman says.

“Our ACS Relay for Life Bake Sale is tomorrow—come down and donate a dollar for one of Sherry’s famous brownies!”

Leave a Message Knowing what topics are appropriate for text messages is an ongoing challenge for some apartment managers. Sequoia Equities, with more than 10,000 apartment units, uses a modified “best practices” text subject matter policy provided by a software firm. For example, the company does not text information about recovering money owed for delinquent accounts. Its policy is, admittedly, initially vague, Director of Marketing Lisa Trapp says, as resident texting is new to Sequoia’s management.

Maintenance/Service “Don’t forget our parking lot is undergoing a slurry seal Wed at 8 a.m.”

“We’re learning the appropriate social ethos” of this method, she says.

“Our gates are temporarily not working, so we will leave them open until they are fully repaired. More to follow.”

Following are examples of what Sequoia Equities’ office and service team members might send to residents:

Back when phones were used for one thing, to call a resident, the phone buttons have shifted from numeric to alphabetical. Times have certainly changed. Phones have certainly changed. Is your company or community changing with the times or are the times going to change right past your leasing office? Only time will tell.

MAINTENANCE CORNER

Remember When There Were No Watering Restrictions? adjust watering times or add watering days only as needed. During the hottest hours of the day, water is often lost to evaporation from the heat and high winds. Watering during restricted hours is considered water waste and may result in a water waste citation. Also, shaded areas will not need as much water as fully sun-exposed areas of your garden. Water your landscape after sunset and before sunrise to reduce evaporation caused by wind and heat. You may hand water your landscape at any time of day, but use a hose with a positive shut-off nozzle. To break down surface tension and allow for better water absorption, add a tablespoon of liquid soap to a gallon of water and drench the brown spots with the mixture.

Sprinkler watering ps

Water Restric ons Began May 1, summer doesn’t have to be a bummer for your apartment community—the Southern Nevada Water Authority (SNWA) has informa on and ps that can help your community beat the heat. Summer watering restrictions began May 1 and allow watering any day of the week through August 31. Mandatory watering restrictions prohibit sprinkler irrigation between the hours of 11 a.m. and 7 p.m. from May 1 until October 1. Before the rampant growth in the Las Vegas Valley, there were no water restrictions. Does not seem that far ago now, does it?

How much and when to water While daily landscape watering is permitted, landscapes can stay healthy and look great with less water. Monitor your landscape closely during the hot summer days and

Water four days per week and increase the schedule only if your landscape needs more water. Set each sprinkler station to run 3 times a day, 1 hour apar t, 4 minutes each watering. Also, don’t water on windy days, which can send sprinkler water in unintended directions. If you notice brown spots in your grass, check your sprinklers to see if any of the heads are broken or twisted.

LEGAL CORNER

Remember When We Dealt With A Lot of Legislative Issues? Oh, Those Times Still Exist Today By John P. Ko er, Leading Change

Not Much Seems to Change in Carson City … Bills, Bills, Bills, “T “The rate of change is not going go to slow down any me soon. If anything, compe com

on in most

industries will probably indust speed up even more in the next few decades.” ne

Reflecting back over the past decade we can recall many changes in legislation that have affected landlords, managers, and management companies. In 1999, there were some major changes to various real property laws. For those of us that deal with property management, approximately 25 bills were passed effecting some area of land use, water, landlord/tenant, common-interest communities (homeowner associations), real estate agency, and mortgage law. What follows highlights some of the more important bills that may affect our legal practices today:

a violation of either Nevada’s fair housing or federal fair housing laws, as in the case of a landlord who attempted to evict a Caucasian tenant under a no-cause eviction because she became involved with a man of a different race. The rights granted to a tenant under this section do not arise unless the tenant’s rent is current. The bill also provided that if the landlord is in breach of the habitability statute, the landlord cannot force the tenant to correct the problem due to the landlord’s refusal to correct it. If the tenant withholds rent because the problem is not fi xed, the landlord may not charge late fees, notice fees, or other charges until the landlord has attempted in good faith to restore the essential service. The bill became effective October 1, 1999.

Back then … A B397 A - Tenant’s defense in summar y ev ic t ion proceedings This bill added language to NRS ch. 118A, Nevada’s landlord / tenant laws. A tenant has a defense in a summary eviction proceeding if the landlord’s attempt to terminate the tenancy is

AB462 A - Acceptance of late rent Until this point, tenants that tendered late rent could not be sure of staying an eviction if the landlord demanded fees and costs above

Over 160 attendees managed cold temperatures and wind to witness a Silent Auction, which raised over $4,000 to be split between the NSAA PAC fund and Nevada Street Teens. Silent Auction items included a landscaping package (courtesy of Silver Lands, Inc.), hotel accommodations at three of Siegel Group’s locations, flip video cameras, Patron tequila and much, much more. The NSAA also invited several mayoral candidates who participated in the evening’s festivities.

The NSAA wants to thank all of those who attended and especially the following companies (see below), who sponsored a cabana for the evening: • • • • • •

Rememb er When …

Do you remember when?

LOL, I remember when my grandfather use to talk about the good old days the good old ways You know how things use to be my siblings and I use to laugh, thinking those days were ancient history Or at best, old wives tales borderline fairy tales Grandpa boasted how he use to walk to school 10 miles and somehow both ways to and fro were up hill! Oh, while in a blizzard! But now I realize I owe old grand dad, I hope God rest his soul, an apology. Cause now I often catch myself remembering when! Do you remember when every neighbor knew your name and how “Hide and Go Seek” was the favorite neighborhood game? Man, things have changed! A one bedroom now, was a three bedroom then! Come on now, I KNOW you remember when! You could drink water straight from the tap or go to sleep at night with your door unlocked and you would wake up the next morning safe and sound PLEASE DON’T TRY THAT NOW! Yes, I owe my grandpa an apology, because when I remember when, my kids laugh at me! They said that those good old days and good old ways that I remember are just ancient history!
