VIENNA, VA. May 3, 2021 – Southern earned national recognition by making the National Multifamily Housing Council’s 2021 NMHC 50, the association’s annual ranking of the top apartment owners in the nation. Southern was ranked the 47th largest apartment owner in the country, with 25,327 units. The top 50 owners represent more than 2.3 million units in the United States.
“We’re extremely honored to make the list,” said Suzanne Hillman, Southern’s president and chief executive officer. “This ranking validates our business strategy and ability to successfully serve thousands of residents on a daily basis.”
This year marks the 32nd edition of the NMHC Top 50 lists. NMHC partners with Kingsley Associates, a leading real estate research and consulting firm, for the NMHC 50’s research and analysis. All apartment owners, managers, developers, builders and syndicators are invited to answer a survey questionnaire that asks about their activities in the prior year. Apartment owners, managers and syndicators are ranked based on their portfolio holdings (either owned or managed) as of January 1, 2021, while developers and builders are ranked based on the number of units started in 2020.
