Property Factors Impacting Community Association Manager Salaries
There are numerous property specific factors that help contribute to the average community association manager being higher or lower than the average reported by Glassdoor. These factors include:
- Units Under Management: A manager running a large property, or multiple properties, will command a higher overall salary.
- Geographic Market: Salaries in large metropolitan markets are cost of living adjusted in almost every industry, including community management. Community association manager salaries are significantly higher in Los Angeles, New York, Miami, and Chicago, as compared to smaller less cosmopolitan cities like Baltimore, Cleveland, and Minneapolis.
- Property Class: Salaries for community association manager's running high end luxury properties and communities will typically earn higher salaries than manager's of lower end properties and communities. This can offset the salary gap based on units under management in certain situations.
- Community Dues: Communities with high community dues typically provide a wider range of services run by the community manager. Accordingly managers for these properties earn higher average salaries.
