Real struggles in real estate? Maybe…..It depends on who you ask and what sector
For single family rentals (SFR) , there is a supply issue that does not seem to be changing any time soon. So where is the distress?
From Auben’s perspective, all news and market indicators point to operations.
Auben who has been living and breathing SFR for the past 15 years is fortunate to have a vast history to inform our perspective. And for the past 12 months, we have been discussing the operational deficiencies we are witnessing and seeing with large scale aggregators and prop tech companies who have underestimated the local complexity of this business.
Behemoths who tried to not only be market disruptors but also destructors, are realizing the hard lesson that no matter how much tech you have at your disposal, real estate is a relationship business driven by people power.
In this week’s highlighted article, we go to Steve Jobs who in his demand for people power driving tech, demanded creativity and innovation in operations.
According to current Apple CEO, Tim Cook,
“When we were running operations, we tried to be innovative in operations and creative in operations, just like we were creative elsewhere. We fundamentally had to be in order to build the products that we were designing.”
Join us in person on May 10th from 10:30am – 11:15am for our next Real Estate News and Market Moves meeting at 909 Walker Street, Augusta, GA.
