Reports

CHAM and its partners produce research, case studies, interviews and white papers
to further the knowledge and skills of asset managers.  

CHAM Survey of Asset Managers 2020

CHAM conducted a survey of asset managers in February and March 2020. We are grateful to the 226 respondents who shared information about their jobs and salaries.

The goals of the survey were to gain a better understanding of the work of asset managers of affordable multifamily housing and to inform types of services and programs CHAM will offer

Questions covered workload, salary, functions, roles, innovative strategies and evolving challenges. Responses were anonymous and confidential.

The survey closed just as the pandemic shut down happened around the country, so it is a snapshot of pre-COVID asset management.

Asset Management and Survival of Nonprofits

What does it take for a mission-oriented real estate owner to survive? Whether nonprofit or for-profit, the answer is clear: positive organizational cash flow. And the key to that answer is ongoing proactive asset management. But the for-profits have always sung this song.
