BuzzHouse: A developer’s checklist during COVID-19

On BuzzHouse’s first episode, Baker Tilly partners Don Bernards and Garrick Gibson outline a checklist of key considerations a developer should use when focusing on operating results during a time of uncertainty. Analyzing asset management at a property level is key, with over 22 million people without jobs and an increase in those unable to pay rent, as well as delays in construction and a slowdown in leasing. The hosts share how property managers are working with tenants on rent payments, cash flow solutions and sensitivity analyses and calculations. Tune in to hear the imperative asset management steps you should be working through on each of your properties.
