5 Key Trends Changing Utility Management
Join multifamily sustainability expert Mary Nitschke, along with ESG tech expert and Measurabl CEO Matt Ellis, for a lively discussion of the 5 most important trends that are changing how we are executing, improving and finding value in utility management for rental housing.
Owners, operators and investors across the country are watching the increasingly complex utility market and shifting industry factors to identify new opportunities and update their strategies for improving NOI, meeting sustainability goals and creating lasting value.
Flexibility is a superpower now: Rental housing is responding to ongoing changes in the landscape of a strengthening economy, hybrid work environments and evolving renter demands ― and facing challenges in operator cost control, energy resource gaps, climate-positive pressures and investor expectations.
Find out which trends will drive the innovations, tools and processes we rely on and how policy, partnerships and compliance influences may impact multifamily utility management operations and portfolio performance. And get a peek into some exciting possibilities emerging from the new strategic partnership between RealPage® and Measurabl.
Mary and Matt will share their experienced observations and expertise to help you identify the opportunities for managing expense, risk, and recovery ― and gain the competitive edge to deliver peak property performance, more sustainable operations and more robust portfolio value.
