Easter Basket Drive

e1

Ernst & Haas Management loves to be involved in the community. We believe in giving back to the same community that has fostered our business. It is delightful to give and serve others that are our neighbors and friends. That is why we choose to be involved by not just providing homes for individuals, but also by participating in local non profits that feel the same way we do. The Long Beach Rescue Mission has opened its doors to thousands of men, women and children for over 3 decades.  LBRM is dedicated  to helping individuals overcome the homeless cycle, achieve long term goals and make a world of difference in today’s society.

For that reason, Ernst & Haas Management is proud to announce its 5th annual partnership in LBRM’s Easter Basket Drive. Our team will be donating 8 baskets for 4 boys and 4 girls that will consist of candy, storybooks, Bibles, coloring books, Easter eggs, toys, etc. We look forward to including those children that are often forgotten.

The Rental Market

r          Rental properties are becoming very difficult for prospects to rent. One of the main factors is the amount of vacancies versus the amount of applicants. In addition, the average US households that rented during 2004 and 2012 has increased from 31 to 35 percent, averaging approximately 43 million renters.

So why is it that the market is picking up at such rate? Some speculate that it is due to the amount of foreclosures that arose in the past decade. Others argue that it is the cost of living that has changed and has forced people to rent. As vacancies become harder to find, rental prices continue to climb while wages have remained relatively stagnant. Especially in an overpopulated state like California.

As a result, renters are spending less of their money on food, healthcare, clothing and their savings to accommodate the housing market. The stress however is not only felt by prospects, but mainly by landlords and property management companies that have to be the liaison between the renter and the owner.

Nevertheless, it is still our duty to provide the best service to all of our tenants. We take these facts into account and only wish to help with any difficulties that arise.
