Budget Preparation Time: 2018 Drafts Are on the Way

As budget time approaches, DEPM property managers are consulting with resident managers, superintendents, and our financial analysts to prepare the 2018 Operating Budget drafts for our client boards to review. Preliminary and general observations reflect that real estate taxes continue to outpace normal indexes of inflation. Utility costs have increased at a pace second only to taxes while, interestingly, labor and related costs are trending just above inflation indexes. Supplies and services have generally marked lower than inflation. DEPM unfailingly works its portfolio clout wherever possible for our clients’ financial benefit. We do our best to reduce the financial impact of our managed buildings’ supply purchasing, fuel and other utility charges, and contractor competitive bidding processes. Please reach out to your building’s Financial Analyst if you have any 2018 budget-related questions.
