Play • 50 min

" can imagine when you hit a renter with a 7% increase and they're expecting something that's sub 2%, that's problematic, and it can lead to turnover, it can lead to notices, and so really it's about managing and massaging the messaging, and it's all about the team, it's about the team component." – Ryan Funt, Live on Stage at the Affordable Housing & New Apartment Development Seminar
