Property manager jobs and community manager jobs are in high demand, according to the latest jobs report from the National Apartment Association.
Demand was three times greater than the U.S. average for property managers and community managers in Portland, Seattle and Austin, according to the report from National Apartment Association’s Education Institute.
Salaries for property managers in the 90th percentile was $61,481 and were displayed in the report due to the tightness of the job market. Market salary is calculated using a machine-learning model built off of millions of job postings every year, and accounting for adjustments based on location, industry, skills, experience, and education requirements, among other variables.

The NAA jobs report focuses on jobs that are being advertised in the apartment industry as being available, according to Paula Munger, Director, Industry Research and Analysis, for the National Apartment Association’s Education Institute.
“Our education institute is a credentialing body for the apartment industry. They hear often that one of the biggest problems keeping our industry leaders up at night is the difficulty in finding talent, attracting talent and retaining talent,” Munger said. “Labor-market issues are happening in a lot of industries, certainly with the tight labor market we have.”
NAA has partnered with Burning Glass Technologies. “They have a labor-job posting database that is proprietary,” she said, and they can “layer on data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS),” Munger said.
