Fox Valley Apartment Association

Date:   May12, 2016 (Thursday)

Time:  6:30pm Social Time    7pm Meeting

Place:  Riverview Gardens, 1101 S. Oneida Street, Appleton

Program:  Appleton Health Department – Steve Kihl and Michelle Roberts

Steve and Michelle will discuss the residential environmental issues and concerns of rental property. They will specifically cover mold issues. Find out when mold is a concern or hazard. We all have mold issues to a certain extent.  When is it a landlord responsibility and when is it a tenant responsibility. High humidity levels and energy efficient windows/furnaces can contribute to mold issues. How can you prevent or reduce these problems.  

Jim Strong and Amanda Krueger from the Fox Valley Veterans Council will also provide a brief explanation of their history, mission, and current initiatives to help our area veterans. The FVVC is a 501c3 charitable organization that provides for basic needs and other areas such as education and housing not provided for by other agencies.

This meeting is sponsored by Greg Halvorson, VP of Business Development for Greenleaf Wayside Bank



June 9th Open Forum/Panel Discussion

You don’t want to miss this meeting. We periodically have this style of meeting and they are generally the most interesting and beneficial, giving you an opportunity of ask questions and discuss issues concerning buying, selling, and management of investment property. Your fellow members have a wealth of information on all areas of real estate investment and management. This is your opportunity to benefit from the sharing of that information. Be sure to bring all your questions and we can have a lively discussion regarding the issues that concern you.

July 14th “DR. RENT” The Top Ten Biggest Pitfalls of Landlords

Please join us for what will be the best meeting of the year. It’s sure to be a very informative, enlightening and educational program. You do not want to miss this!

Our featured presenter will be John Fischer, also known as “Dr. Rent”. His program will focus on the common mistakes property managers and landlords make. Bad things can happen to good people. When a good landlord falls victim to a bad tenant, results can be frustrating. Dealing with bad tenants is already hard enough, but too often good landlords fall victim to their own mistakes, compounding an already bad situation. Dr. Rent will discuss the 10 most common mistakes that he has seen in over 20 years as a landlord and property manager. One of the best things we can do is learn from our own mistakes, but Dr. Rent has found it is wiser (and a lot less expensive) to learn from others mistakes as well.

John holds a real estate Broker license and has been managing rental property in Wausau for well over 20 years. He has been involved with residential, commercial and industrial rental properties as well as vacant land sales and condominium development. Mr. Fischer has been the past president of the Wisconsin Apartment Association, and the Wausau Area Apt Assn., an instructor for Rental Housing Resources/WAA as well as an instructor for the UW Continuing Education program. Observing a number of new and experienced landlords going to court and having a difficult time because they do not understand Wisconsin’s complicated laws and procedures, Dr. Rent has been educating landlords on the proper way to do things and has taught classes on everything from accounting, to property management procedures, to Landlord/Tenant Law.
