December 2018 – Letter From the Publisher
November 27, 2018
President, Arizona Journal of Real Estate & Business
On behalf of everyone at Arizona School of Real Estate & Business, season’s greetings to you and your loved ones! It’s hard to believe 2018 is nearly over. I hope it has been a prosperous year for all of you. As the year comes to a close, I’m excited to share with you the news of our expansion into the southern Arizona market with the addition of Hogan School of Real Estate (Hogan). Based in Tucson, Hogan will combine its talents with ASREB to represent the largest and most comprehensive real estate education program in the state. Please join me in celebrating this exciting new venture.
If you’re looking ahead and considering a new or expanded investment for 2019, I highly suggest taking a look in this issue for tips on how to approach property management as a successful source of main or extra income.
Take into consideration that Arizona has recently been considered one of the hottest markets for property management. A steady influx of Arizona homes built in 2017 gave way for us to see boosted home sales, prices, and real estate agent activities in 2018. This is only expected to grow as sales pick back up after the holidays and millennials continue to reach financial maturity, increasing sales and the first-buyer percentage.
If you’re just getting started in property management, or you’re looking to make the decision to expand your business to include multi or single-family homes, it’s incredibly important to stay well-informed on the subject. Consider your personal goals and how full-time or part-time property management would fit in with your lifestyle.
To be clear, property management can be a highly successful source of steady income, but the gig isn’t for everyone. We hope you will join us for the Property Management Seminar on December 14th to learn more from local industry experts about how Property Management can be successful for you.
As we begin to turn the page on 2018 and look ahead to 2019, I encourage you to take time to reflect on the goals you set for yourself this past year. Congratulate yourself on your wins, big or small, and build upon them in this next year.
Wishing you the very best throughout this holiday season and a happy, healthy New Year!
