2:00pm - 3:30pm EDT


Vinnie Viola, MPA, HCCP

When proactively managed across all real estate life cycle phases, multifamily rental housing can be the lifeblood of a non-profit affordable housing organization. Rental housing provides revenue streams from i) property operations, ii) reposition opportunities and iii) developer fees. These diverse revenue sources can grow an organization’s balance sheet and help ensure its long-term success and housing mission. In this 90-minute webcast, Vinnie Viola presents a sample multifamily portfolio with various operational challenges, opportunities and risks to the owner. He illustrates how successful owners maximize a portfolio’s operating cash flow and other revenues sources to the benefit of the developer organization. Vinnie concludes the training with an example of a portfolio asset management plan to help guide an owner’s annual REO goals.
