Preparing Your Pool for Winter

by Michelle N. on 8/21/2015 6:29:00 PM

The summer season is coming to an end soon, which means it is time to get the pool ready for winter. Winterizing your pool may seem complicated, but with a little preparation, it can be a very simple and pain-free process. One of our suppliers, Leslie's Pool Supply, has put together a quick video that will help you prepare your pool for the winter season.

Leslie's recommends a five step process that includes the following:

• Balance your water chemistry
• Prepare your pool deck
• Store your equipment
• Put a cover on your pool
• Make sure your plumbing is prepared for the colder temperatures

Follow these recommended tips and it will mean less work and reduced maintenance costs in the Spring.

Fire Prevention Tips to Ensure Safe Grilling This Summer

by Michelle N. on 7/7/2015 5:20:04 PM

Digested from “Resident and Staff Education on Having a Safe Grilling Season”
Property Management Insiders (6/30/15) Blackwell, Tim

Grills offer the opportunity for cooking up great summer fare, but they can also be a major fire hazard at apartment communities. Whether residents are using personal or communal grills, apartment community owners and managers should consider hosting a grilling workshop or cookout to ensure that residents are educated on property safety procedures so they can keep themselves and others safe while cooking outdoors.

Apartment community staff members should perform regular maintenance checks of community grilling equipment. This includes examining connection points and tubes for potential gas leaks on propane grills and making sure the tank and burners are turned off. If employees or residents smell gas when approaching a grill, they should know to steer clear and call the fire department.

Also, grills should be placed far enough away from the buildings to prevent property damage, with a fire extinguisher and spray bottle nearby in case of emergencies.

Residents can also prevent fires and burn injuries by allowing charcoal to cool before disposing of it.

What Millennials Want, and Where They Want It

by Michelle N. on 6/1/2015 5:23:47 PM

As more millennials form households and step out on their own, they're looking for rentals, but not where you'd think.
By Maggie Goldstone, Lindsay Machak, Charlotte O'Malley

Millennials were hit hard by the Great Recession, but they're starting to dust themselves off.

The Urban Land Institute released a new report, “Gen Y and Housing: What They Want and Where They Want It”, on Wednesday which surveyed about 1,270 millennials on how they’re living today.

In terms of housing and employment, many millennials are finally finding their footing. In fact, 62% of respondents indicated they’re working full time, and 27% of those full-timers are raking in between $50,000 and $74,999, with another 24% living on an income between $35,000 and $49,999.

How Energy Efficiency Can Save Both Resources and Money

by Michelle N. on 5/19/2015 2:53:43 PM

Digested from “New NRDC Study Highlights Huge Potential for Energy Efficiency in Affordable Multifamily Housing”
National Resources Defense Council Staff Blog (5/12/15) Salter, Raya

Employing energy efficiency in apartment communities can provide benefits far beyond its intrinsic value of conserving resources, according to new findings from the National Resources Defense Council (NRDC).

For low-income residents, energy-efficient apartment homes can decrease financial burdens through lower utility costs and improve health and well-being. For community managers, energy-efficient features also provide savings in utility costs, as well as the advantages of having more financially stable residents who may seek out more eco-friendly living environments.

The study, which focused on Georgia, Illinois, Maryland, Michigan, Missouri, New York, Pennsylvania and Virginia, also noted the return on investment as being roughly $2.90 to $3.50 per dollar spent to save energy.
