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.
NMHC and Kingsley also partnered in 2015 to produce the Renter Preferences Study, which analyzes data from nearly 120,000 responses across the country about resident priorities for home features, community amenities, and more. This represents a 712% response rate increase from the 2013 study, with data from twice as many communities and with data coverage for 44 cities, also twice as many as in 2013.
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.
