How Much Do Community Association Managers Make?

Updated on April 6, 2018

Community Association Manager Salary Poll

Data from various sources suggest that community association managers, responsible for managing HOA's, Condominiums, an Co-operatives, have a wide salary range. The popular company review site Glassdoor reports the average is $53,978 in the United States, with fluctuations based on local market and property size.

To test the validity of this projection, based on 4,539 anonymous salary submissions, we have constructed the following polls. Our reason for questioning the average salary projection is based on significant negative feedback on the Facebook page for Property Manager Insider.

The average community association manager's annual salary is $53,978.

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.
