About this Training
Multifamily developer and operator clients tell Blackstone Consulting LLC (Blackstone) that the most uncertain costs they encounter when trying to forecast expenses are real estate taxes and utilities. Blackstone can’t advise clients with taxes, but the good news is there are an assortment of tools and programs available to owners and operators which can assist with forecasting and managing energy and water utility expenses.

Energy efficiency is always a wise investment, however energy capital expenditures (CAPEX) need to be put into context of the hold period for the multifamily asset, the cost of financing/re-financing, and the potential positive impact on the project’s exit cap rate. If you want to learn more about how to put your asset in the best possible position with regard to energy efficiency either at the point of acquisition, asset management, or disposition, this 60-minute training is for you.

The webcast will discuss terminology such as what benchmarking is and how it can assist you in identifying candidate properties for green upgrades, as well as low-cost and no-cost upgrades—low hanging fruit– that can improve the bottom line today.
