Preserving and restoring affordable housing projects helps promote and sustain mixed-income communities by ensuring the ongoing availability of quality, affordable rental homes. Affordable housing owners and developers who have lived through an occupied renovation project know the potential hazards: frustrated residents, missed timelines, poor planning, extended schedules, sloppy subcontractors, weak project communication, and, of course, relocation costs, and headaches. A successful occupied renovation program improves asset value, life span of the property, and enhances resident satisfaction. Plus, saving on resident relocation allows owners to reinvest in other property areas to their benefit and to the benefit of all who call these properties home. Join the WALSH team in a conversation on key aspects to a successful, resident-friendly renovation and the lessons learned on managing and avoiding common challenges.
