Mountain Shadows Foundation: Raising Awareness (and Money) for a Great Cause

Mountain Shadows Foundation LogoAt Goldenwest Management, we pride ourselves on running a values-based property management service.  Two of the values of GWM are community and charity.  We believe in helping to make our communities stronger, and to support our favorite charities on a regular basis.  Our upcoming charity event, The Mountain Shadows Foundation annual “Fall Classic Golf Tournament” is the perfect event to put both of these values in action.  Held at the Santaluz Club in San Diego, this tournament supports the Mountain Shadows Support Group of San Diego County.  The mission of this group is best described in the statement below taken from the MSF website.

Home Values Appreciating in California and Nevada

According to a report released by CoreLogic today, California and Nevada are among the nation leaders in home value appreciation.  CoreLogic uses what it calls it’s Home Price Index (HPI) to track home sales, and measure the change in value over time.  The average gains were actually very good for California and Nevada in the August 2014 report:

Including distressed sales, the five states with the highest home price appreciation were:  Michigan (+11.1 percent), California (+9.2 percent), Nevada (+9.2 percent), Maine (+9 percent) and West Virginia (+8.7 percent).

This should serve as uplifting news to landlords and property investors (and those currently looking to get into the market) in those states.

At Goldenwest Management, we firmly believe in education as a competitive differentiator for our property management offices in San Diego, Phoenix, and Las Vegas.  Our staff members are extensively trained on knowing tenant-landlord law, knowing the business, and knowing how to serve our property owner and investor clients.

Whenever new educational opportunities arise, we like to pass it on to our friends and colleagues.  Keeping with that spirit, we have a new educational opportunity to announce.  The San Diego Daily Transcript recently posted an article on education for property managers in San Diego.  The article discussed the San Diego County Apartment Association (SDCAA), and the new ability to become designated as a Certified Apartment Manager (CAM) and a Certified Apartment Supplier (CAS).  These courses cover topics like:

  • fair housing, marketing
  • legal responsibilities
  • human resource management
  • property maintenance
  • risk management
  • financial management
  • research, analysis and evaluation

Stay tuned, to the SDCAA website, as these courses will become available this month.  Also, if you’re interested in other educational opportunities in San Diego property management, there will be free classes at the San Diego Convention Center on April 22 .  Planned topics include tenant screening, maintenance customer service, economic forecast, green practices, leasing advice,  and elevating your brand.  Aside from the education, nearly 200 exhibitor booths will be on hand, so bring your business cards and prepare to  network your business!
