EPISODE 037: Interview with Auburn Apartment Market Expert Jim Andrews (1 of 2)
Categories: Strategy & Tips
Description & Show Notes: In this Episode, you'll hear the first of two interviews with Jim Andrews, who publishes the Auburn Apartment Guide and the Tuscaloosa Apartment Guide. Jim got started as a Property Manager, did a little teaching on the subject at the college level, and has been in the apartment business in some way ever since. He is also involved in the financing side of the multifamily business and an investor in properties and projects himself.
The framework of the 2 episode series is a historical look at the multi-family and/or student housing options here and how they have evolved over time. We'll cover everything from trailer parks and duplexes to downtown redevelopment, and everything in between in roughly 10 year chunks.
This first episode is going to cover the 1980's through about 2005ish, and the second episode picks up in the 2000's and goes all the way up until today's projects.
