Kingsley Associates has been the chosen partner for the National Multifamily Housing Council’s (NMHC) NMHC 50 survey since 2009. This study is the authoritative ranking of the 50 largest apartment owners and managers. In 2015, the study has expanded to include the top 25 largest developers and general contractors. The annual NMHC 50 survey results are released in the April issue of Multifamily Executive.
Renter Preferences Report
NMHC and Kingsley partnered to survey over 1,000,000 residents across the US regarding their apartment rental experience. As a follow up to the surveys initiated in 2013 and 2015, the 2017 NMHC / Kingsley Renter Preferences Report shines light upon 272,743 apartment residents’ perspectives on what apartment features and community amenities are most desirable, how they found their apartments, and their top considerations for moving.
The survey included new questions on emerging hot topics and carry-over questions from 2015 for trend analysis. With over twice as many respondents as 2015 and nearly twice as many communities and cities, the report is an indispensable database for apartment owners, managers and developers, as well as architects, suppliers, financial institutions and many others.
Package Delivery Survey
In 2014, NMHC and Kingsley Associates collaborated to produce the Apartment Resident Package Delivery Survey. With more than 2,500 responses, the results offer insight into how apartment operators are addressing the increasing real estate, technology, and personnel expenses (personnel costs or overhead costs or time) associated with efficiently delivering an ever-expanding volume of packages to residents.
