Perplexed by property management?  You are not alone – but the confusion can be addressed and money made!!

Property management is a very prominent aspect in the field of commercial real estate.  This category of commercial real estate can be heavily regulated, dependent on locale, and in most areas it is typically overseen at the municipal level by specific commissions or licensure boards. The law of a particular region will help shape the framework, but the elementary principles that are involved in the actual day to day tasks of property management remain the same. Commercial real estate, as applied to property management, focuses on principles, and where applicable local laws and standards, to help get a broad view of the subject.

Topics Include:

  • Functions and property management
  • Responsibilities in the field
  • Protocol for managers
  • Basic rules in commercial real estate

Perplexed by property management?  You are not alone – but the confusion can be addressed and money made!!

Property management is a very prominent aspect in the field of commercial real estate.  This category of commercial real estate can be heavily regulated, dependent on locale, and in most areas it is typically overseen at the municipal level by specific commissions or licensure boards. The law of a particular region will help shape the framework, but the elementary principles that are involved in the actual day to day tasks of property management remain the same. Commercial real estate, as applied to property management, focuses on principles, and where applicable local laws and standards, to help get a broad view of the subject.

Topics Include:

  • Functions and property management
  • Responsibilities in the field
  • Protocol for managers
  • Basic rules in commercial real estate
