Part I: Confirmed: Attorney Stuart Schrier with a Policy Review
Did you know that renter advocates and their Reps and Senators blame landlords for an over-regulated market? They want
rent control and taxpayer funded attorneys for all renters.
We'll review HD.1100, which has 20 cosponsors and would enact rent control, and we'll review right to counsel.
Attorney Stuart Schrier of Dorchester has confirmed his availability to present. Attorney Schrier gave politely intoned but legally eviscerating
testimony against Just Cause Eviction proposals last session in the City of Boston. In terms of his grasp of legal theory and practice,
Attorney Schrier is one of the foremost landlord-tenant attorneys in Massachusetts. He is also recipient of the
2017 MassLandlords Good Neighbor Award.
Part II: Ways to Make More Money with Existing Properties
When you can't buy a new property, is your income maxed out? Maybe not. For "Ways to Make More Money with Existing Properties,",
we'll be presenting the best tips and tricks we've learned from talking with hundreds of landlords
over the years for offering a higher level of service and earning more.
We'll start with easy stuff like knowing your water pressure (you do know your water pressure, right?) and work up from there. A major
portion of the presentation will be strategies for negotiating higher rent with applicants other landlords might unfairly reject.
We'll end with guidance on leaving paper checks behind and going
digital with online rent collection that fits tenants' income patterns, avoids overdraft, and helps your renters build credit.
Don't miss these strategies for improving your bottom line by doing right. Real estate is a great way to build wealth over time by doing more for others.
This segment will be presented by
Doug Quattrochi, Executive Director of MassLandlords, Inc. MassLandlords
members represent the experience of tens of thousands of rental units, and each presentation a new idea comes up that gets worked into
subsequent presentations. Come prepared to learn some great ideas but also please think about what you want to share with the room. Together we'll make
this a meeting our balance sheets and the Commonwealth's housing stock will thank us for.
