SEPTEMBER 2019


Second Quarter, 2019       

     

                                                         

At the end of the second quarter, the Austin area’s apartment market was continuing to operate in the positive. The incoming new product that previously held occupancy down, relented at mid-year, allowing rates to bounce out of a three-year lag.

94.2% $1.52 3,686

27,661 27,182

$158,668 29

While occupancy found its footing, rising 1.3% to reach 94.3% at midyear, this is double the increase seen since this time last year. Effective rents followed suit, rising 2.8% to reach $1.52 or $1,306/mo. Although completions in the second quarter were delayed by weather issues, that was the only aspect of the construction arena that experienced any kind of slowdown. To wit, the number of new projects that broke ground was an astounding 21 properties, bringing the current number of projects under construction to a whopping 107 in all property types. This is the most active the current development pipeline has ever been. The number of new submittals was equally shocking, with 27 new properties filing for permits.

All in all, there are close to 54,850 units in the development pipeline – an increase near 25% more units than is currently in the market’s inventory – if all come to fruition. We look forward to keeping you up to date on market conditions as the area continues to grow at a rampant pace.

President’s

PERSPECTIVE OUR TIME TO GIVE BACK AND PAY IT FORWARD

Sandy Eckhardt

CREA Management 2019-2020 President

Giving back and paying it forward; these are concepts I do not take lightly. I have been so very blessed in my life and consider it a duty and privilege to share those blessings with others who may be less fortunate. I also recognize I would not have as many opportunities in life to give back if it weren’t for the generosity of the rental housing industry. As fall approaches, so does the time to kick off one of my favorite ways to pay it forward: the annual Doc & Gayle Young Food Drive. Once again, our Community Outreach will helm this project with the goal of raising $65,000 to buy Thanksgiving food packs for needy families and individuals in and around Austin. Did you know 100% of the funds raised are donated? My husband and I give every year and I encourage you to do the same. You can go to AustinFoodDrive.com to make an online donation, or support the Food Drive by attending one of the fun events this fall. Help kick off this year’s drive at the Karaoke Kick Off Happy Hour on September 5th. I consider giving back to the rental housing industry to be just as important as a charitable donation. One way the Austin Apartment Association offers its members to give back is by playing in a golf tournament. Hard work, I

know. Registering to play in the Larry Niemann Fall Golf Classic coming up toward the end of September means you have made a donation to the Apartment PAC Austin, our local political action committee. Apartment PAC Austin is our association’s political voice, providing an opportunity for members interested in the welfare and future of the free enterprise rental housing market to support candidates for local and state office who believe and have demonstrated their beliefs - in our pro-housing point of view. These are just two ways I like to give back and pay it forward, personally. It is important to me that our association offers all its members these types of opportunities. We all can make a difference for the good of the world, but it is our collective effort that can take our impact from good to great.

This issue has been vexing apartment management companies for many years.

This position was maintained even after the Austin Apartment Association reminded

enforcement cases filed in a court of law, if the registered agent of the facility in violation fails to appear in court as summoned, the city will close the poolspa facility until that case is resolved in court. What remains the same is that regardless of whether the apartment ownership is an individual or corporation, the city will act to close a poolspa facility at any time when a facility poses an immediate public safety hazard.

Department until 1989 when it was organized as a health district, a separate governmental entity under Texas law. As part of their charge the WCCHD has decided to enforce the state laws and rules concerning public swimming pools, spas, artificial swimming lagoons, interactive water features and fountains and pool yard enclosures. Heretofore, swimming pools have not been inspected and permitted in Williamson County. When implemented, any apartment pools in the cities of Cedar Park and Round Rock will fall under the WCCHD pool inspection

Williamson County Pool Permit Program

key take aways • As part of their charge the WCCHD has decided to enforce the state laws and rules concerning public swimming pools, spas, artificial swimming lagoons, interactive water features and fountain and pool yard enclosures. • Any apartment pools in the cities of Cedar Park and Round Rock will fall under the WCCHD pool inspection and permitting program. Any pools in those areas of Cedar Park and Round Rock that actually lie in Travis County would still fall under the WCCHD program. The Williamson County and Cities Health District (WCCHD) is an organization that provides public health services to the public such as preventing disease, ensuring access to safe food and water, immunizations, and preparing for and responding to health emergencies. The agency was known as the Williamson County Health

swimming pool operator training and certifications such as the National Recreation and Park Association Aquatic Facility Operator (A.F.O.) or the National Swimming Pool Foundation Certified Pool-Spa Operator (C.P.O.). AAA will seek to have the program simply require that someone responsible for the pool operations, and not the actual person who physically obtains the permit, hold the pool operator certificate since this will still ensure resident safety and public health without altering property management procedures. The other program concern is there will be only one person in this Williamson County district responsible for pool permit inspections. It is estimated that half of the nearly 300 pools to be governed by the WCCHD are apartment property pools. The other pools include hotel, health club and neighborhood pools. The time table for program implementation is likely this fall.

and permitting program. Any pools in those areas of Cedar Park and Round Rock that actually lie in Travis County would still fall under the WCCHD program. The program proposed by the WCCHD looks like most other municipal pool permitting programs that govern apartment pools throughout Texas. Tentative plans call for a $230 permit fee, which is also in line with existing programs. However, a few troubling aspects of the program will be the focus of AAA’s advocacy actions prior to full implementation. The primary concern is the proposed program requires the actual permit applicant completes one of four

The Austin Zero Waste Advisory Commission (ZWAC) has determined that residents in multifamily (MF) properties do not have the same access to recycling because, among other reasons, the bin capacity set for MF properties is too low and quickly fill to capacity and, once at capacity, MF residents simply discard their recycling material in the trash bin. In response to the perceived capacity shortfall, tentative plans call for an increase to the recycling bin capacity size from 6.4 gallons per dwelling unit to 24 gallons per unit or an equal 1:1 ratio of landfill trash to recycling capacity. ZWAC would also like to begin an organic waste pilot program to study how organic waste collections could be implemented at (Continued on page 14)

erties. Currently, organic waste collection reaches 95,000 single family homes. Figures released by the city show that 20% of all apartment communities meet the 24-gallon standard. This figure is based on the recycling plans submitted to the city in compliance with the Zero Waste Ordinance. At a meeting with City of Austin Resource Recovery staff, AAA members

outlined the limitations they have with bin corral sizes and the costs associated with increasing the corral size (in addition to the potential loss of parking spaces). AAA members also talked with city staff about the high contamination rates and the costs associated with bin contamination and how larger bins will do nothing to alleviate contamination. The ZWAC will likely send their program change recommendation

to the city council before the end of the year. Properties are encouraged to contact AAA staff to discuss their challenges with the current recycling ordinance and share their concerns with increasing recycling bin capacity. Also, if you are currently implementing any innovative program onsite to encourage recycling or help eliminate recycling material contamination, please share your experience with AAA staff.

THE

RENTAL PROPERTY

IN THE AUSTIN APARTMENT ASSOCIATION Park Place Apartments, managed by Rainier Management, Ltd, just may be the oldest operating rental property in Austin.

A

ccording to our sources, this 50-unit community was built in 1960 and recently was updated by Rainier in 2013. Park Place is nestled in an older neighborhood and across from West Austin Park and Wading Pool, yet a stone’s throw from bustling West Sixth and Lamar. Driving up to the property really does feel like stepping back in time. It’s a quiet spot. So close to busy downtown and MoPac, yet on a hot summer’s day, the cicadas’ song is the prevailing sound and you almost expect to see an impromptu party at the moontower at the nearby park. District Manager Lin Cavellos says Rainier is proud to own and manage older properties such as Park Place. Lin says, “Our

a a a m e m b e r c o m m u n i t e s by d e c a d e

properties are tucked into cool neighborhoods and stay true to the authentic, old Austin.” “Park Place,” she says, “gives a niche market of guests the opportunity to live in one of the oldest apartment communities in Austin, in Clarksville, a recognized National Register Historical District.” With some supposed challenges to managing an older property with older infrastructure, come some great advantages. Lin says, “older properties offer a unique style and atmosphere that differentiates them from the updated modern and technological amenities many residents have come to rely on [at newer properties].” “Rainier Properties, and specifically Park Place,” she says, “offers a return to the simple, less technology-reliant way of modern properties, catering to folks desiring a rare opportunity to reside in an apartment home that has seen the years of Austin’s growth and prosperity, while keeping to the property’s resilient history.”

WAYS TO UTILIZE PINTEREST TO DRIVE MORE LEADS TO YOUR PROPERTY by: J O N S I M P S O N , C R I T E R I O N B

T

oday’s residents are not just relying on Facebook recommendations or Craigslist to find their next multifamily apartment home. They are turning to alternative tools as well for research, guidance, and inspiration, such as online bookmark and picture-sharing site Pinterest. What once was a site for teens to share crafts and recipes with friends, is now a profitable social media platform for savvy marketers. With more than 150 million monthly users, Pinterest provides a refreshing way to maintain and enhance your search engine optimization (SEO) efforts. While Pinterest relates more to social shares and engagement metrics rather than technical SEO tactics and backlinks, the pinning platform spurs more than 2 billion searches each month. Additionally, more than 250 million of those monthly searches are visual searches — opening the door for significant multifamily marketing potential. How do you build (and maintain) a strong presence on Pinterest? Below, we explore a few ways to get started and make the most of this growing social media platform.

1 2 3 18

START A BUSINESS ACCOUNT The first step is ensuring you create a business account and not personal as this will give you access to the Pinterest ads manager and analytics tracking. Use your property’s full name in your account, and be sure to include all necessary descriptive information in your Pinterest bio, including contact information, logos, and any community amenities or features you would like to highlight.

CREATE YOUR BOARDS Pinterest boards are the topics by which you organize your content. You should create boards that showcase your property (rooms, amenities, events), as well as boards that provide tips and tricks for commonly searched apartment topics. Make sure not to go overboard with the number of boards so that you can keep all of them active, and create descriptions for each one. Consider creating the following boards: • • • • •

Interior decorating tips Neighborhood guides Easy recipes for entertaining Space-saving tricks Household hacks or craft ideas

RESEARCH & INCLUDE KEYWORDS Perhaps one of the most important aspects of Pinterest is to include appropriate keywords. Each “pin” needs to contain keywords in the title or description to increase its relevance in search engines and direct more people to your boards. To accomplish this, you will need to conduct thorough research on your target residents to discover what they are most interested in and searching for online. Pinterest offers a guided search tool to help find more relevant results and narrow down the focus of searches. Once you type in a keyword or topic into the search query, Pinterest will suggest semantically-related modifiers, which indicate some of the most popular search queries related to your topic. Keep track of these popular queries and past them into a document that you can keep on hand when pinning new content to your boards.

DEVELOP A STRATEGY & BE CONSISTENT

While Pinterest may operate a little different than other social sharing networks, that does not mean you can create an account and occasionally log on to pin posts. Just like your other platforms, it’s crucial to develop and maintain a consistent sharing strategy, regularly check analytics, and continually engage with other users. Strategy is at the core of building a following, spreading brand awareness, and enhancing your SEO efforts.

PIN FREQUENTLY & VARY YOUR TIMING According to Buffer, you should aim to post between five and 30 pins per day. Be sure to spread these pins out at different times. According to the Pew Research Center, 17 percent of Pinterest users visit the site daily, and 9 percent visit several times a day. Additionally, about 29 percent of users go on Pinterest weekly, while 52 percent say they visit the site less often. Thus, varying your timing will help you reach different segments of your target residents and create more exposure. We recommend pinning content on Saturdays as well as weekdays in the afternoons and evenings, as this is typically when most residents are active online.

CUSTOMIZE SOURCE LINKS Customize your pin’s link to direct potential residents back to your website so they can check out your property. Click “Edit” on your pin, insert your website URL into the “Source” bracket, and make a captivating caption that will entice users to click on it. Pinterest is a unique social media channel that may not be successful for everyone, but when utilized correctly, it can significantly increase your brand awareness and potentially drive more leads to your property. The key is to ensure you utilize the platform to the fullest: by regularly pinning and engaging with residents and maintaining a strategy to optimize SEO.

Doc & Gayle Young Food Drive Battles Hunger

‌EVEN IN THE SUMMER! The Doc & Gayle Young Food Drive hand-delivers 1,350 family food packs every Thanksgiving to families and seniors each fall, but we work to battle hunger during the summer months, too. Food pantries are hit hardest in the summer months because children who receive assistance for breakfast and lunch during the school year are not getting those benefits during the summer. Each summer, the Food Drive makes financial donations on behalf of the Austin Apartment Association to local food pantries in 10 counties surrounding Travis County. This summer, Food Drive tri-chair

Terri Needham made three donations to food pantries in Llano, Fredericksburg and Blanco. Each food pantry serves around 300 clients a month and our donations will be used to purchase foodstuffs from the Capital Area Food Bank.Thanks to everyone who makes a donation in support of the Doc & Gayle Young Food Drive. Your generosity is felt by so many who need so much.

LAW IN ORDER

The Warren Report

William S. Warren, Warren Law Firm

EVICTIONS: WIN, LOSE OR DRAW?

W You should note the clear distinction between termination of one’s right to possession and termination of the lease. They are not the same.

34

hen a property owner seeks to exercise the remedy of eviction, a relatively straightforward question is raised: who has the superior right to possession of the rental unit, the landlord or the tenant? If it is the landlord, a tenant may be compelled to vacate the premises they occupy. If it is the tenant, there will be no dispossession and the persons occupying the premises will be entitled to remain in possession. Most leases, notably the Texas Apartment Association (TAA) lease, contain default provisions. If there is a default under the agreement between the parties, and the act of default is committed by the tenant, the owner has the right to end the tenant’s right to possession. It is not, however, a right that can be exercised unilaterally. If the resident does not voluntarily move out in a timely manner following receipt of a notice to vacate, an eviction lawsuit will need to be filed and prosecuted by the property owner. If the tenant decides to oppose the eviction, a trial will be necessary.

/ W I N D O W O N R E N TA L H O U S I N G

The trial will originate in the Justice of the Peace court. A prerequisite to the filing and pursuit of an eviction suit is to give a notice to vacate. The notice to vacate will advise the resident there has been a default under the lease. It will also state, due to the default, the tenant’s right to possession has

been terminated and the resident must vacate by a certain date. The default typically arises either due to non-payment of rent, holding over beyond the end of the lease term, or engaging in conduct that is prohib-

ited by the agreement between the parties. An appropriate notice to vacate will unequivocally advise the tenant their right to possession of the premises has been terminated. You should note the clear distinction between termination of one’s right to possession and termination of the lease. They are not the same. In eviction proceedings, it is neither necessary nor advisable to terminate the lease. The lease is the contract between the parties and it contains all the essential terms of agreement. The lease imposes contractual obligations on both the resident and the property owner. You want it in place. You want to terminate only a resident’s right to possession. To win in an eviction proceeding, never terminate the lease (at least until the eviction case is completely concluded). If you prematurely advise a tenant that his lease has been terminated, you will be jeopardizing your right to regain possession due to a default under the lease. If you want to prevail in an eviction, do not terminate the lease. It is critical that preparation and delivery of the notice to vacate be done properly. If it is not, the eviction may fail. The failure, moreover, may have one of two forms. There may be a legal failure, in which case the owner’s ability

to prevail at the eviction trial is jeopardized. There may be also a practical failure. A failure of this type may still result in you getting a judgment awarding you possession. But dispossession of your resident is not the only, or necessarily the best, way to win the eviction. The core relationship between a rental property owner and a resident is contractual. Contained within the contracts are matter-of-fact solutions to many problems that arise. Such documentation has been so wellcrafted, in fact, that emotion, compassion and empathy can be effectively removed. Or can they? In the business of providing housing to others, you are frequently faced with people who are experiencing some sort of problem. Perhaps your resident cannot afford to pay rent on time. Perhaps someone is living in the rental premises who lacks your permission to do so. The potential problems are endless. Be prepared to “think outside the box.” A hollow victory is often not a win, especially in this context. We live during a time when respect for others often is hard to find. That societal shortcoming pervades our daily lives more than it should. In the rental housing industry, when a tenancy appears to have gone bad, it is important not to overlook the value of compassion and empathy. This “Law in Order: The Warren Report” is not going to teach you or even discuss the procedures of an eviction. Rather, you have a wonderful opportunity to learn the eviction process from beginning to end at an upcoming “Evictions” seminar taught by this author on October 16, 2019. If you have not already done so, you are strongly encouraged to register for this

seminar, which will be given at the Austin Apartment Association office. The primary purpose of this article, however, is to explore the facets of an eviction case which present an opportunity to win during the process without having to dispossess your tenant. Many of you have either read the book, seen the movie, or both for the classic novel written by Harper Lee entitled To Kill a Mockingbird. The key character in that story, Atticus Finch, told his daughter, Scout, “… you never really understand a person until you

consider things from his point of view … until you climb into his skin and walk around in it.” Before we go further, it is necessary to discuss the practical limitations of the eviction remedy. Assume your potential eviction is based upon non-payment of rent. Why wasn’t the rent paid on time? Does the resident want to pay the rent? Can all the rent to be paid reasonably quickly? Are you willing to communicate with the resident who is in arrears to determine the underlying causes for the non-payment of rent? At a minimum, it is worth the inquiry. The answers you receive to

those qttuestions may enable you to become a competent evaluator of the facts and utilize traits like empathy, compassion, experience and understanding to guide your decision-making. In the end, perhaps the rent gets paid, the resident avoids eviction and you escape an avoidable vacancy and lost rent. This is one way to secure a win in an eviction proceeding. Your job is difficult and challenging. You deal with all sorts of personalities, some good, others not. You are responsible for the owner’s bottom line, yet seldom are you given adequate credit for your efforts and ingenuity. Considering whether to pursue the eviction remedy involves more than a win, a loss or a draw. With the right facts, and through the exercise of care in the matters preliminary to the filing of an eviction suit, winning is not so difficult. To prevail, however, you must commit to do things right. You must take the lawsuit that you file seriously in order to commence the eviction. Do not be careless because eviction cases begin in Justice of the Peace courts; these are powerful courts with powerful judges. They have the same ability as any other court in Texas to consider the facts and arguments and render a decision, which will have very serious consequences for at least one of the parties. When giving a notice to vacate, everything must be done by the book. This is how evictions are won. Cutting corners will be costly in more ways than one. The Texas Property Code clearly spells out how a notice to vacate must be given and what it must say. There is no ambiguity about the

tions of flaws in the facts of your case. Without the presence of such a witness, the contention by the resident of, for example, a lack of delivery or improper delivery of the notice to vacate cannot be overcome. The absence at trial of a knowledgeable witness poses a significant problem because it allows the defendant to say anything, accurate or not. Inaccurate facts must be rebutted. If they are not, only one side of the story is presented. The rest of the story is never told. This is how you lose an

eviction case. The only time it ever makes sense for a representative of the owner, who brings personal knowledge of the facts, not to be present at the eviction trial is if you absolutely know the defendant will not make an appearance at trial. Unfortunately, you never know this. Assuming you do is how you lose an eviction. Knowing that your ability to prevail at trial depends upon your ability to present competent evidence, why would a competent witness from the property not be present in the courtroom, ready to testify? Why would you put all your eggs in the basket where your win depends upon the defendant’s failure to appear in court? Why would you risk your reputation for profession-

alism and competence by not appearing before the judge in the case, which you initiated? Why should the judge, seeing no representative acting on behalf of the plaintiff who knows any of the facts from a first-hand perspective, be inclined to rule in your favor? This is how evictions are lost. TAA makes available to its members a form called an “Eviction Hold Off Agreement.” For those of you who own a current REDBOOK, the document can be found on page 386. Although designed to address an eviction based upon non-payment of rent, the form easily can be modified to address an eviction for other reasons. The purpose of the “Eviction Hold Off Agreement” is simply to reach an agreement based upon periodic performance by the tenant that enables the default, which is the basis for the eviction, to be eliminated. Once eliminated, moreover, the eviction need not proceed. Some might call this a draw. But it is a win. Because you were willing to think outside the box, climb into the skin of your resident and walk around in it for a while, you enabled yourself to fix the problem. Never think of a resolved eviction case as a loss. On the contrary, think of what you won. You won payment of the delinquent rent, albeit over a period of time. You won by avoiding a needless vacancy with down time equating to lost rent. You won when you saved having to prematurely make a vacant rental unit ready for the next occupant considerably earlier than you had planned. In the “Eviction Hold Off Agreement,” the resident, who would otherwise face eviction, agrees to a cure. Even when the eviction process has been started because the landlord gave a notice to vacate or filed an eviction lawsuit, incomplete performance

permissible methods of delivery of a notice to vacate. There are multiple methods and, if the one you select is not strictly adhered to, serious proof problems will result. It is becoming much more commonplace for evidentiary challenges by a defendant to arise during an eviction trial. For example, was the notice to vacate properly prepared and delivered? Did it provide proper timing before the eviction lawsuit was filed? The resident whom you want dispossessed from your property (also known as the defendant in your eviction case) has learned online that challenging some aspect of the propriety of the notice to vacate can be a beneficial defense tactic. If the evidentiary and factual challenge to your evidence is not overcome, your ability to prevail at trial is in jeopardy. It is never surprising to hear any defendant tell the judge that he or she never received the notice to vacate. That simple statement can have dire consequences. Such a statement is not a problem, however, if the notice to vacate was properly delivered, contained the right language, and its actual delivery can be proven by a competent witness. What is a competent witness in this context? One with personal knowledge concerning delivery of the notice to vacate in your particular case. More and more, notably when non-lawyer third-party services are utilized to represent a property, a challenge concerning the notice to vacate (or for that matter any alleged defect in the plaintiff’s evidence) can be quite problematic. Why? Because these services seldom require or encourage the presence in court of a witness who has personal knowledge and will be able to rebut the defendant’s conten-


by the resident under the “Eviction Hold Off Agreement” will not jeopardize your ability to prevail if the case proceeds to trial. To quote from the “Eviction Hold Off Agreement,” “… our acceptance of partial payments does not and will not waive our right of eviction, and won’t void any pending eviction lawsuit.” Proceeding under the “Eviction Hold Off Agreement” requires you to “… agree to postpone any default judgment and to postpone the eviction trial or hearing as long as [the resident complies] with the above payment schedule exactly on time and as long as all future rents becoming due during the payout schedule are paid on time.” Another essential element of the “Eviction Hold Off Agreement” contains

the following commitments by the resident: “… if payments are not made exactly on time according to the above schedule … we will be entitled to seek an eviction judgment.” Also, “… [the resident agrees] to voluntarily move out immediately if [the resident] fails to make payments on time as set forth [in the Eviction Hold Off Agreement].” Stated another way, what have you got to lose? The “Eviction Hold Off Agreement” enables you to be aware of the important differences between the kind of dispassionate reasoning and analysis one is tempted to engage in at a desk in the office, and the kind of activities in which we engage when we are dealing in real time with people. Never hesitate to consider something from another’s point of view;

you’ll be glad you did. Even if the result is an eviction judgment, you and the judge who will decide your case will know that you did not come to court lightly, but only out of necessity. Knowing this will enhance your reputation, emphasize your professionalism, and achieve greater overall success and satisfaction for all concerned and affected. The success I am talking about can be measured by the value to both you and your resident when you opt not to evict immediately a resident who is in the midst of temporary troubles. Think outside the box and, where it is appropriate, choose instead to creatively reach a solution which is neither a win, a loss or a draw. Choose the solution that is simply the right thing.
