                             A SPECIAL SUPPLEMENT TO NATIONAL REAL ESTATE INVESTOR




                                  NATIONAL REAL ESTATE INVESTOR is pleased to present the 22nd annual
                                  NMHC 50, the National Multi Housing Council’s authoritative ranking of the nation’s
                                  50 largest apartment owners and 50 largest apartment managers. For more than two
                                  decades, the NMHC 50 has been a key resource for industry observers. The top owner
                                  and manager lists, and the analysis that accompanies them, have provided the only
                                  historical benchmark against which to measure industry trends and concentration.

                                  Based in Washington, D.C., the National Multi Housing Council provides leadership
                                  for the apartment industry. NMHC’s members are the principal officers of the larger
                                  and more prominent apartment firms and include owners, developers, managers,
                                  financiers and service providers.

                                  The Council focuses on the four key areas of federal advocacy, strategic business
                                  information, industry research and public affairs. Through its federal advocacy pro-
                                  gram, the Council targets such issues as capital markets, housing policy, energy and
                                  environmental affairs, tax policy, fair housing, building codes, technology, human
                                  resources, rent control and more.

                                  For those interested in joining the apartment industry’s leadership, NMHC welcomes
                                  inquiries to its Washington office at (202) 974-2300, or you can visit NMHC’s web site

 MetHodology
 The National Multi Housing Council (NMHC) partnered with Kingsley Associates to handle the NMHC 50 survey process (though
 NMHC remains solely responsible for any errors). To compile the NMHC 50 lists, both organizations gather names of owners and
 managers from as wide a range of sources as possible, and staff from each firm complete the survey online. Over the years, improved
 outreach and increased publicity associated with the rankings have resulted in more firms responding to the survey.
     For the purposes of this survey, investment fund managers are treated as owners only if they retain substantial equity in the apart-
 ment property or if they maintain effective responsibility and decision-making over the investment property. Similarly, tax credit
 syndicators and franchisers are regarded as owners only if they retain a fiduciary responsibility. (When firms function strictly as
 advisers rather than investors, they are not regarded as owners.)
     The rankings do not distinguish between partial and full ownership. Some firms own sizable apartment properties through joint
 ventures in which their share could range anywhere from 1 to 99 percent. Others are primarily the sole owners of their apartments.
 In principle, it would be desirable to account for partial ownership—treating 50 percent ownership of 100 apartments as equivalent
 to full ownership of 50 units, for example. In practice, it is not feasible to make such distinctions.
     The survey excludes condominiums, cooperatives, hotel rooms, nursing homes, hospital rooms, mobile homes and houses with
 rental units. Rental housing for seniors (age-restricted apartments) is included, although assisted living and congregate care facilities
 are not. Finally, since we measure industry concentration by comparing the Top 50 owners and managers against the nation’s entire
 apartment stock, only U.S. apartments are included.
     At times, a firm may debut on the NMHC 50 at a high level. Generally, this means the firm is responding to the survey for the first
 time, rather than an indication of an outsized portfolio gain—although that, too, happens on occasion. Nonetheless, despite many
 improvements and everyone’s best efforts, the process remains imperfect: It relies on both accurate reporting and surveying of the
 complete universe, both of which can be fraught with problems.
     There are two caveats in comparing the lists over time. First, the definition was refined in 2006 to eliminate those investment fund
 managers with neither substantial equity nor effective control over the investment property. Second, occasionally firms that have
 previously been among the Top 50 owners or managers have not responded to the NMHC survey. When that occurs, companies
 appear on the list that otherwise might not have been large enough. In addition, this affects the total number of apartments owned
 by the Top 50 firms, as well as other measures of concentration such as the mean and median portfolio size. (Note that this did not
 affect the management list.) For these reasons, year-to-year comparisons must be made with great care.

 Note: In some cases, newly introduced policies prohibited firms from sharing the kind of information needed for these rankings.

DOCUMENT INFO
Description: The Nation’s 50 Largest Apartment Owners and 50 Largest Apartment Managers. Apartment Market Demand for apartment residences continued to surge in 2011 as more households decided that renting was a better fit for their lifestyles, needs and budgets than owning. Overall, the renter share of households rose to 34.0 percent at year-end, the highest level in almost 14 years. Net absorption among investment-grade apartments posted the best back-to-back years since the boom of 1999-2000, while the occupancy rate rose 110 basis points (bps) from the fourth quarter of last year to almost 95 percent, an indication of solid recovery from the Great Recession. New supply remained sparse. The his-torically low level of multifamily starts in 2009 and 2010 led to low completions in 2011. However, starts rebounded signifi-cantly, suggesting completions should ramp up in 2012, with stronger deliveries likely for 2013 and beyond. Even so, the level of new multifamily construction in 2011 was bare- ly half of the average annual pace from 1997 to 2006. NMHC’ s most recent Quarterly Survey of Apartment Market Conditions showed that although new development activity was widespread, starts lagged—only one-fifth of respondents indicated that groundbreaking had accelerated. What’ s more, almost half of respondents indicated that new development was considerably below demand. New construction financing remained an obstacle in many markets, along with outdated zoning codes, unnecessary regulations and “NIMBY” groups.
