In a survey of more than 1,200 property managers across the country, Greenwood Village-Colo.-based resident screening provider TransUnion found striking differences in the perspectives of small property managers (those with fewer than 200 units) and larger ones (those who manage more than 200 units). Small managers are generally holding rental rates at the same levels as a year ago, with only 36 percent of small managers increasing rates. Meanwhile, a whopping 64 percent of larger property managers have increased rental rates since a year ago. On the occupancy side, 66 percent of small managers reported zero vacancies, while only 11 percent of larger managers have no vacancies. TransUnion vice president of channel and product development Mike Mauseth says the company plans to conduct a larger resident and rental trends survey later this year.
