BuzzHouse: Rent collections, making attractive deals and fixed tax credit percentages

Baker Tilly’s podcast series specifically for professionals in the multifamily housing industry

With unemployment rising to an ultimate 14.7% rate, many multifamily housing developers and owners are interested in what future rent collections will look like. Join Don Bernards and Garrick Gibson as they speak to these upcoming rent collections, as well as how to make your deal more attractive for a tax credit investor, and what developers can do to help mitigate the current drop in investor pricing.

As the multifamily housing industry pushes for a fixed 4% tax credit and lower requirements for the 50% test, Garrick will explain the key factors driving this and recommend some talking points when addressing legislators.

Don and Garrick will also dive into what the next round of proposed COVID-19 legislation could mean for you, including a housing assistance fund and emergency rental assistance.
