Announcing August Webinars!

Jul 29, 2016

Summer may be winding down, but we are gearing up with a series of webinars to help improve your knowledge on challenging topics. In August, Housing Academy and our partner The Inspection Group are offering four new webinars on timely topics we know are of importance to you, thanks to your feedback. Every Tuesday, these webinars allow you to dive deep into a specific topic without taking too much time away from the demands of your busy professional life.

On August 2nd we are offering Getting the Most from Your REAC Report presented by The Inspection Group. Understanding your REAC Inspection Summary Report is one of the keys to dependable REAC success. Because the REAC scoring system is so complicated, there is not a single, universal strategy for achieving REAC success. Your REAC report reveals your property’s unique scoring profile and critical clues to your best pro-active REAC strategy. Every good Plan A deserves a good Plan B – so it is also important to understand the significance of your REAC report to submitting effective appeals when necessary.

On August 9th Housing Academy presents Affordable Ledgers Demystified: Understanding Affordable Ledgers in Yardi Voyager® 7S. Making corrections to affordable ledgers can seem daunting. They often turn into a mess of rent charges, HAP or subsidy charges, and reversals or corrections. In this webinar we will review how to read and use the HAP and resident ledgers, how to adjust and post lease charges for retroactive subsidy changes, and the correct process for voucher reconciliation in Yardi Voyager® 7S.

Please note that we will need to confirm you are a current Yardi Customer before being able to attend this webinar.

August 16th is Mystery No More: Unit Scoring in the REAC Inspection presented by The Inspection Group. "Set sound priorities, and then work toward your objectives in an orderly fashion." You might be thinking that this would be much easier to accomplish if we only knew how many points each defect is worth. You can predict the exact value of every single defect in your Units, and it is not all that difficult. In this session, we will review the scoring values of Unit defects and show you how to accurately predict Unit scoring values for any property. As a bonus, all participants may download a spreadsheet that can be easily programmed to do so by entering two numbers found on your last REAC Inspection Summary Report.

Finally, join us on August 23rd for Common MOR Finding: The Use of EIV presented by Housing Academy. Management and Occupancy Reviews (MOR) have recently been reinstated for all states. Some of the most common findings on MORs relate to the correct use of the Enterprise Income Verification System (EIV). It is important to fully understand the use of the EIV System and how this requirement will be evaluated on an MOR. Join us for a webinar about leading business practices for preparing your site for the MOR in relation to EIV.
