I subscribe to several industry-related publications via email and/or hardcopy. Most of these resources are free with an email subscription. I have an email I use just for organization newsletters, blogs, and the like. I’m a policy person, meaning I have an interest in the rules and statutes that impact the real estate industry on both sides of the table. As a business owner and a consumer, I like to ensure I can be a great advisor by keeping tabs on what is happening nationally and locally.
An awesome tool I use for local news is, Google Alerts, an online content monitor. I set up an email alert to notify me whenever my chosen real estate topics are discussed online in Michigan and Georgia. My alert topics include: Commercial Real Estate in Georgia, Detroit Real Estate, Affordable Housing, Real Estate Law, Multi-Family US, etc.
With the recent election, laws and rules are changing rapidly and it will be even more important to have an understanding of how it will affect your property and/or business.
