The first #AptChat of the new year was all about the biggest trends that will affect the apartment industry in 2013. We discussed consumer trends, mobile technology, internal operations, and trends that are fading away this year. Check out the highlights below:

Question 1: What do you think are the biggest consumer trends that are on your radar right now? How are you planning for them?

Question 2: What are the opportunities to leverage current mobile technology? Are you creating apps? Responsive sites? Passbook features?

Question 3: What are you going to be doing LESS of this year? What are some trends that are fading away?

Question 4: What will be the biggest trend that will impact how you run your internal operations? Mobile? Cloud software? Something else?

Now it’s your turn…what trends are on your radar this year? Are there any trends that seem to be fading away? Leave a comment and let us know.
