PropertyManagementMaven: This has been a VERY BUSY end of the year WEEK!!! WHEW!

This has been a VERY BUSY end of the year WEEK!!! WHEW!

This has been a VERY BUSY end of the year WEEK.   Although I will send out 1099 information in January, 2011, I'll send every client an end of the year newsletter with a recap of upgrades for 2010 and what is in store for 2011.  I'll also send year-end cash flow re-cap with a cash flow page with information that can be transposed directly to their Schedule E.

I'll cull old lease, invoice and property files and put them in a banker box for 2010 AND I'll transfer all of my CURRENT property photos to a jump drive for 2011 and archive the earlier years photos.

By removing old files and leases, I don't have to buy and install new file cabinets and I can re-use the hanging file and folders

Likewise, I'll remove all of my corporate invoices/paid bills and put them in an accordion file for 2010.

I've been upgrading my Resident Handbook that accompanies my leases and will have a new one for 2011 AND I have upgraded my property management proposal to INCLUDE some of my blog posts.

That information is electronic and I'll smooth them during my downtime this weekend.

I'm READY 2011!  Bring it Baby!

I am thrilled with how busy I've been this past two weeks as well - considering it a good omen for an even better 2011. Happy New Year!

Sounds like you are ready for 2011 Wallace. I have a very positive feeling about the New Year as the end of 2010 picked up nicely here in Michigan. Wishing you a Happy and Prosperous New Year!

Hmmm, a resident handbook. Need to add that to the arsenal.

You certainly sound ready for 2011 Wallace. Happy New Year
