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 program, 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 at www.nmhc.org.

Top Apartment Firms Strategically Pursue Surging Rental Market By Mark Obrinsky, Vice President of Research and Chief Economist, National Multi Housing Council

OvERviEw 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

American Campus Communities is a $4.5 billion real estate investment trust (REIT) traded on the NYSE (symbol: ACC). Since 1993 we have structured and closed more than $6 billion of student housing transactions. With business expertise in project design and development, asset acquisition, and management services, we are the nation’s premier owner and operator of quality student housing.

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 historically low level of multifamily starts in 2009 and 2010 led to low completions in 2011. However, starts rebounded significantly, 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 barely 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. The boom in renters combined with the near-bust in supply led to strong rent growth. Same-store asking rents

were up by almost five percent in 2011 nationally, surpassing the previous peak. Adjusted for inflation, however, real rents were still seven percent below the level of 4Q2006. Apartment transaction volume continued to grow in 2011, climbing 54 percent higher than 2010 and more than tripling 2009 levels. Indeed, at nearly $54 billion, volume surpassed 2004 levels, the last year before the condo conversionfueled boom. Apartment prices have risen sharply since the trough—the national average is up 25 percent to 35 percent by most measures— and recent transactions show that many class-A properties in prime locations have even surpassed their previous peak. Cap rates eased a bit further last year to 6.5 percent, around 50 bps lower than the peak two years earlier.

Top 50 Owners and Managers The total number of apartments owned by firms in the NMHC 50 owners list is 8.2 percent greater than the number managed by the Top 50 managers, the largest difference in six years. In line with the previous three years, the mean and median portfolios among apartment owners are also larger than the mean and median management portfolios. But once again, the top management firm has a larger portfolio than the top owner firm, and the entry threshold for NMHC 50 managers is higher than that for the NMHC 50 owners. Most firms are bunched together in a relatively small band: 30 of the top management firms have between 30,000 and 50,000 apartments, as do 24 firms on the owners list.

Apartment Ownership Boston Capital topped the NMHC 50 owners list for the third consecutive year. (The firm also marked its 21st straight year among the Top 10 owners.) The next three spots were unchanged as well: Centerline Capital Group, Boston Financial Investment Management LP and SunAmerica Affordable Housing

REITs in the Rankings he number of REITs on the 2012 NMHC 50 owners list is unchanged from the previous two years. Total apartment holdings by REITs in the NMHC 50 decreased for the ninth consecutive year. At 1.6 percent, however, it was the smallest decline since 2006. As in past years, the drop had more to do with company-specific strategies than with the character of the REIT model. In fact, seven REITs grew their portfolios, but this was outweighed by downsizing at Aimco, Equity Residential and, to a much lesser extent, UDR, Inc. In principle, apartment owners could be ranked not only by the number of apartments owned but also by the value of those apartments. While capturing such data is impractical, there is an alternative measure available for public companies, namely total capitalization. While not perfect—ownership of non-apartment assets can substantially affect overall firm value—it provides a useful perspective on relative size among apartment firms.

Hunt Companies, Inc. registered the largest portfolio gain, adding 16,489 units. Five other firms also had portfolio gains of more than 8,000 units. The Related Companies 1,925.6 made the biggest jump in the rankings, up 13 slots to No. 23. Berkshire Property Advisors also made a double-digit move, climbing 1,156.3 10 places to the No. 40 position. Overall, firms on this year’s management list added a combined 61,628 apartments to their portfolios, as 34 companies grew compared to the 2010 2012 16 firms that shed assets. The total number of apartments managed by the Top 50 companies is the highest on record. The share of the entire apartment stock under management by the NMHC 50 rose to 15.8 percent, also a new high. Both the mean and the median rose and set new all-time highs. The minimum size needed to make it into the Top 50 edged down a bit from last year’s record, but at 27,573 units is still the second-highest threshold since the rankings began. Concentration trends were mixed last year. The portfolios of the 10 largest firms make up 41.7 percent of the Top 50, down from 43 percent last year—the group’s lowest share in 18 years. Apartments managed by the next 10 firms (No. 11 through No. 20 in the rankings) rose to 19.7 percent from 18.6 percent a year ago. The percentage marks a sizable share but is below 2005’s high-water mark of 20.8 percent. All of the Top 50 firms manage market-rate apartments. In addition, 32 companies have Low-Income Housing Tax Credit (LIHTC) properties in their portfolios—and of those, 19 also manage non-LIHTC affordable properties. Eighteen firms have senior housing apartments under management, although only Pinnacle Family of Companies has more than 20,000 such units.

Lincoln Property Company (No. 3) and Pinnacle Family of Companies (No. 4) switched places—the only ranking change among the Top 10.

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 apartment 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.

The Anatomy of a Brand Strategy Changing demographics lead some apartment firms to pursue new brand segmentation strategies. By Bill Gloede

hen Arlington, Va.-based AvalonBay Communities, Inc. announced in December that it was splitting its communities into three distinct brands, many in the industry took the news as a sign that the apartment rental industry had fully shaken off the dust from the downturn. With rents and renewals rising, business was back on a growth track, and the future looked promising. Not only were consumers beginning to question the value of homeownership, but Generation Y’s throngs of echo boomers were coming of age, creating a huge, emerging demographic market for apartment rentals. Not since the upscale rental segment took off back in the late 1990s had there been such a clearly defined marketing opportunity. Under AvalonBay’s new structure, the company’s core brand, Avalon, will continue as the company’s flagship. Located in bigger urban and suburban markets, Avalon communities will include high-end amenities and services and continue as the publicly traded REIT’s primary growth engine through new development, according to the company’s Senior Vice President for Brand Strategy Kurt Conway. Apartments will be larger and include premium finishes, lighting, appliances and amenities. The second brand in AvalonBay’s portfolio, called Eaves by Avalon, will include communities located in mostly suburban locations and target more cost-conscious, value-oriented renters. The final brand is dubbed AVA, partly because, as Conway puts it, “The word ‘AVA’ underscores the brand’s social elements. After all, it’s a person’s name.” The brand is squarely targeted to the highly social, super-connected Generation Y demographic. These communities will be in transit-friendly and urban settings in “energized neighborhoods,” as Conway calls them. Properties will feature smaller apartments

as well as units more conducive to roommate living. Conway points to a new AVA community under construction in the H-Street district of Washington, D.C., as representative of the new brand. Situated in an emerging youthful, walkable neighborhood, the property offers Generation Y residents ready access to transit, nightlife, galleries and restaurants. Apartments range from 450 square feet for a studio to 550- to 650-sq.-ft. one-bedrooms and roommate-friendly units in the 750- to 1,050-sq.-ft. range. While the brands are new for the company, which ranked No. 16 on the NMHC 50 Owners list and No. 14 on the NMHC 50 Managers list, the underlying strategy is really reflective of something the company’s been doing for the — Kurt conway, AvalonBay communities, inc. past 25 years—investing in locations where people want to live. “[We’re] focusing on the best performing markets and submarkets in the U.S, and within these markets, we are putting the right product that best matches customer needs,” Conway says.

Show Me the Money Managers institutional managers continue to make their place in the apartment business next to traditional owners. By Bill Goede

T

he apartment rental business has long been a good place to park money. Depending on economic conditions, of course, it usually offers steady returns on capital and relatively stable asset value, which is a tough combination to match in, say, the stock markets. This continued stable performance is causing the rental business’ mix to change as more investment management companies, attracted by the potential yields, join the ranks of more traditional owners. According to an analysis of data collected for the NMHC Top 50, investment management firms are an increasing presence among the largest apartment owners in the U.S. The number of such companies among the Top 50 has nearly doubled from four in 2008 to seven this year, with TIAA-CREF, the financial services and retirement giant that takes its abbreviated moniker from Teachers Insurance and Annuity Association (TIAA) and College Retirement Equities Fund (CREF), making its first appearance on the list. TIAA-CREF debuted on the Top 50 owners list at No. 28. To the investment management companies that have been active in the industry for a while, this comes as no surprise, especially given the nature of the recent recession and concomitant crash of the homeownership market. “The sector is attractive because there’s a good income return, it doesn’t have a long lead time to develop and it’s attractive to a large number of investors,” says Jean Anderson, New York-based managing director for J.P. Morgan Asset Management, which ranked No. 24 on the top owners list. “And it certainly has been a property type that’s rebounded quickly from the recession.” “What has fueled the strength in the apartment rental industry over the past three years is the housing crisis,” says Paul Michaels, managing director of No. 20-ranked Invesco Real Estate in Dallas. “There’s been this huge flight to rental properties. The buzz in the industry is apartments.” Andrew McCulloch, an analyst who follows the apartment sector for Green Street Advisors in Newport Beach, Calif., cites the still-ailing market for single-family homes, demographic factors that signal strength in the rental market for years to come, a relative dearth of new supply owing to construction slowdowns during the recession and the relatively low cost of debt as primary drivers of this interest. “It’s easy to see why investment managers like apartments,” he says.

April 2012

Dan Fasulo, managing director at Real Capital Analytics in New York who tracks the commercial real estate sector, agrees. “Multifamily is in full-fledged recovery right now,” he reports, and, given that, says the increasing interest in the sector among investment managers “doesn’t surprise me. Real estate looks good versus some of the other alternatives; multifamily looks good versus other commercial property sectors. It looks awfully rosy versus the other prospects.” New apartment construction is near historic lows.

“there’s been this huge flight to rental properties. the buzz in the industry is apartments.” — paul michaels, invesco real estate

According to the Commerce Department, housing permits nationally for buildings with five or more units plunged from 359,000 in 2007 to 295,400 units in 2008 to 121,100 in 2009 before rising to 135,300 in 2010 and 176,400 last year. The 2009 and 2010 numbers were the lowest since the government began tracking this type of data back in 1959. “The developers and lenders hit the brakes very early in the cycle,” Fasulo explains. “Looking back, this is going to be some of the slowest growth we’ve seen for multifamily construction in the post-war period.” But then there’s that return. According to the National Council of Real Estate Investment Fiduciaries, which has since 1984 been tracking what it calls a composite total rate of return on investment for apartments owned at least in part by tax-exempt, institutional investors, there have been only eight quarters of negative returns through the end of 2011, six of them during the recession of 2008-2009. In 2011, average annualized returns rose to 15.5 percent. The other primary driver of interest in multifamily is demographics. The so-called Echo Boom generation, also known as Generation Y or the Millennial Generation, is entering the prime rental market demographic of 18 to 30 years

old, many of them carrying record levels of education debt, which could keep them renting longer than previous generations. Add to that the millions of former homeowners who have returned or will return to the rental market as the national homeownership rate fell from a high of 69.4 percent in 2004 to 66.0 percent in 2011, the biggest drop in that metric since the Great Depression according to the Census Bureau. Coupled with the relative lack of new supply, these factors continue to keep rents and renewals steady. Still, investment management owners are keeping a wary eye on supply. “As long as supply remains in check, multifamily is going to be a great place to be,” says Invesco’s Michaels. J. P. Morgan’s Anderson echoes that sentiment. “Overall, the trends are very positive,” she says, but then asks, “How may units will be delivered two or three years from now?” Invesco, for one, is turning cautious on some markets, among them Seattle, Austin and Washington, D.C., which, not coincidentally, are areas that held up relatively well during the housing bust. He also believes there could be a supply surge in Boston. “People have to start to look at [markets] more closely,” says Michaels. “Two or three years from now, you might start to see supply exceeding demand.” However, he isn’t expecting to see that happen in New York

“[The apartment sector] certainly has been a property type that’s rebounded quickly from the recession.” — Jean Anderson, J.P. Morgan Asset Management

or Southern California, where demand continues to outstrip supply, in New York because of lack of developable land and in Southern California due to the length and difficulty of the permitting process. Anderson is likewise optimistic on JP Morgan markets, which are mostly gateway cities, including New York, San Francisco and the so-called Gold Coast on the Hudson River in New Jersey. Still, that caution will hardly dampen interest in multifamily among investment managers, Michaels believes. “I think [the rental market] is so good that people are still looking at the glass half full,” he says.

On a Path of Growth

Top apartment firms outline strategies for making the most of a promising market in 2012. By Hortense Leon

A

s the economy sidestepped a double dip and began to firm up through 2010, its measured recovery set the stage to make 2011 a turning point for the apartment industry. Suddenly demand for rental units outpaced limited new supply and capital was flowing more freely to the sector. Market dynamics had shifted in such a way that apartment firms saw rents climb rather substantially, a key signal that the apartment market had indeed turned around. “We expect to see 5 percent to 7 percent increases in net rents in many markets [in 2012],” says Nicholas Roby, president of BH Management Services (No. 21 on the NMHC 50 Manager’s list) and vice chair of the equities division of BH Equities (No. 39 on the NMHC 50 Owners list). “This is a big improvement over the zero market rent growth and concessions of a half a month’s free rent or more, that were common a couple of years ago.” With opportunity like that dangling like a carrot in front of a hungry apartment industry, apartment firms are trying to come up with the best strategies to capture as much of the demand growth Seattle as they can, while it lasts. The industry’s runway for growth could shorten in 2013 and 2014, making 2012 a critical year for NMHC 50 executives to continue to execute new initiatives and complete transacSan Francisco tions, better positioning their companies for longer-term success. But finding the right strategy can be challenging in an Irvine improving market, as apartment firms San Diego wrestle with which opportunities to pursue—and which to let fall by the wayside.

According to a January NMHC Quarterly Survey of apartment market conditions, 53 percent of respondents reported a substantial pick-up in land acquisition and the lining up of financing and securing of building permits, although actual construction starts appeared to lag. An additional 20 percent of respondents reported that developers had been breaking ground on new projects at a rapid clip. “We have doubled our development pipeline this year,” says Ric Campo, chairman and CEO of the Houston-based Camden Property Trust (No. 14 on the owners’ list and No. 9 on the managers’ list). The company currently has about 2,300 apartments under construction at a cost of about $400 million and another 520 units under construction, at a cost of $113 million, with joint-venture partners. Campo says in the near term the

Some Will Build The economic and housing recession has kept the apartment industry in a chronic state of under-production. Through 2011, there were 167,300 multifamily apartments started (5+ unit properties), a little more than half of the new units the industry should produce a year. However, greater access to capital is starting to accelerate new development.

company plans to start construction on an additional 3,000 units in Tampa, Fla.; Orlando; Washington, D.C.; Denver and Southern California, among other locations. “We felt that the fact that there hasn’t been any apartment development in the last several years [would result in] pentup demand,” he says. At Denver-based UDR, Inc. for example, president and CEO Tom Toomey reports that his company (No. 15 on the owners’ list and No. 13 on the managers’ list) is currently investing $1.1 billion in building about 3,000 apartment units and redeveloping another 3,000. Warren Rose, CEO of Farmington Hills, Michigan-based Edward Rose & Sons, is another apartment owner looking to take advantage of burgeoning rental demand, an improving economy and more access to capital. His company (No. 17 on the owners’ list and No. 16 on the managers’ list) is on track to develop 800 to 1,000 new units this year. This is the first significant development the company has done since the beginning of the recession in 2008, says Rose. And running counter to other expansion strategies at work in the market, which focus on only gateway markets on the East and West coasts, Rose says the new units will be in markets in Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Michigan, Nebraska, Ohio, South Carolina and Wisconsin.

“We have doubled our development pipeline this year. We felt that the fact that there hasn’t been any apartment development in the last several years [would result in] pent-up demand.” — Ric campo, camden Property trust For as much as a limited supply of new apartment product is driving new development, the acceleration in apartment construction also reflects anticipated demand as the almost 80 million-strong Generation Y comes of age. Camden’s Campo says, “Of the 3.8 million new jobs that have been created since the bottom of the recession, twothirds have gone to people under 34 who are mobile and more likely to be apartment dwellers [than other generations].” Ronald Ratner, president of the Cleveland-based Forest City Residential Group, Inc. (No. 23 on the owners’ list and No. 32 on the managers’ list), says the industry is building with that demographic in mind. “Everyone today is looking at building smaller product,” designed to appeal to the tastes and budgets of a younger group of urban professionals, he says.

Others Will Buy But building a property from the ground up takes time—anywhere from 18 months to 30 months in many markets—and some apartment companies are wont to wait. Consequently, many apartment companies seek to grow not only organically through development but also through acquisitions of both individual properties and larger portfolios. In fact, 2011 was a hot year for APRIL 2012

Moreover, appetite for portfolio deals also grew; roughly $9.6 billion in assets traded in portfolio transactions in 2011, more than double the value of portfolio deals in 2010. Jack O’Connor, chief operating officer at Kirkland, Wash.based Weidner Apartment Homes (No. 42 on the managers’ list and No. 44 on the owners’ list) says his company takes a balanced approach to growth. “We grow our business about half through acquisition and half through new construction,” he says. “We expect to have 10 percent to 15 percent more units (between 3,000 and 5,000) completed and/or acquired by the end of 2012. This is our yearly target, but there can be bumps in the road.” — Ronald Ratner, Forest city Residential REITs UDR, Inc. and Equity Residential (No. 6 on the Group, Inc. owners’ list and No. 5 on the managers’ list) have been two of the most aggressive acquirers in recent years. UDR’s Toomey units in its portfolio by nearly 10,000 units last year. says that, during the financial crisis, his company made few Company president and CEO David Neithercut says, “We acquisitions but started buying more assets again in late continue to pursue a strategy of reducing capital commit2010, when UDR, Inc. purchased about $400 million worth ments to non-core ‘commodity’ markets, and investing in of properties.

its garden-style apartments in favor of buying more upscale urban apartments. “The assets we are selling are significantly smaller than the ones we are buying,” says Neithercut. In the case of the former, prices range from about $35 to $40 million, “which is the middle of the fairway for Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac,” he says. “We are buying assets in the $100 to $150 million range.” In 2011, Equity Residential sold $1.48 billion worth of properties and bought $1.34 billion. This year, Neithercut expects the company to buy and sell a similar amount, roughly $1.25 billion. This works out well, he says: “We are generating capital with the disposition process.” But while there are many means by which apartment firms are navigating the year ahead, a single end seems assured for most: a successful 2012.
