With the cap rate compression environment that we're in right now, it's more important than ever for multifamily investors to be creative about how they add value in order to increase rents and get a good return on their investment.
In this week's podcast, we talk with James Donnelly, Founder and CEO of Castle Group, which focuses on residential property management. James discusses the 3 main strategies he employs to add value to his company's investments and deliver top level services and amenities to a new generation of every more demanding residents. 
The 3 main categories James uses to add value is:
  • Traditional value-add - e.g. painting, putting in a new floor, or adding new amenities
  • Technology - using technology to make you not only more efficient, but also using that as a revenue stream
  • Better management and service

Join us for this podcast as James gives his investment advice and his take on the multifamily market in Florida.
