All apartment owners, managers, developers, builders, and syndicators are invited to answer a survey questionnaire that asks about their prior year's activities. Apartment owners, managers and syndicators are ranked based on their portfolio holdings (either owned, managed, or syndicated) as of January 1, 2023, while developers and builders are ranked based on the number of apartment units started in 2022.
