Property Management Blog

A professional Property Manager will be well aware of the economic recession, which may occur due to particular events. Economic Recession may be bad for most of the people and companies, but for American Property Managers it is not at all bad as it sounds. 

American Property Managers understands the situation when individuals cannot afford to buy a home during the economic downturn while there are people who are forced to sell real estate for various financial reasons but still require a well-equipped place to live. Therefore, in such situation, people prefer to rent the property and seek the best available options. 

However, American property managers are experts and keep themselves prepared especially for the situations like Recession. 

Major downturn 

Let us guide you with the major example that happened last year on 3rd June. According to US Bureau of Labor Statistics, an addition of 38,000 non-farm payrolls was announced while the economists were hoping to see the numbers 160,000. While consequently, Bureau mentioned that unemployment rate has fallen in US to 4.7% from 5.0% during the months May to April that means almost 458,000 workers dropped out from labor force. 

According to economists, US is still taking measures to recover the significant downturn, which was vulnerable. J.P Morgan`s Jesse Edgerton said, “the macroeconomic indicator showed the probability of recession that has increased from 30% to 34% and last week it was 36%.” The tracker has marked a new expansion second time during this week. 

Economic Indicators 

American Property Managers does recognize the patterns of economic recession that include manufacturing sentiment, auto sale, building permits, consumer sentiments and unemployment. Remember that non-farm payroll is not an economic indicator but rapid unemployment rate must be considered as a warning sign. 

Unemployment rate 

The level of unemployment proves to be an indicator of an economic recession in two ways. 

As a near-term indicator, American property managers recognize the increment in unemployment rate, which depicts the beginning of recessions. As the medium risk, unemployment rate will increase with time and surely overheat the background risk of recession.

Suggestions to stay prepared 

  1. After recognizing the level of unemployment, it is best to consider the plan for consolidation and growth. Make sure to stay prepared for the sizable recession and keep the debts sustained.
  2. Yes, no one wants to hear bad news so keep your clients happy by staying in touch and making sure that they are not over-leveraged. Do inform them about the ideas and concerns.
  3. Just replace the complex clients with flexible ones. The complainer client will lead to severe frustration especially during the economic downturn.
  4. Make the screening process for residents or clients a bit complex. Credit ratings and FICO scores will depict the financial priorities and allow the renters to pay on time.

So just, avoid aggravation during the unexpected events like recession.
