AvalonBay Communities has recently released its 10-Q report, detailing its operations and financial performance for the first quarter of 2024. The Company, an equity REIT, owns or holds an interest in 299 apartment communities with 90,669 apartment homes in 12 states and the District of Columbia, with 18 communities under development. It focuses on developing, acquiring, and managing apartment communities in leading metropolitan areas in various regions across the United States.

In the first quarter of 2024, AvalonBay Communities reported a net income attributable to common stockholders of $173,449,000, marking an increase of $26,547,000, or 18.1%, from the same period in the prior year. The increase was primarily driven by a rise in Net Operating Income (NOI) from communities over the prior year period. Same Store NOI attributable to apartment rental operations, including parking and other ancillary residential revenue, for the first quarter of 2024 was $463,741,000, reflecting an increase of $16,671,000, or 3.7%, over the same period in the prior year.

As of March 31, 2024, the company owned or held a direct or indirect interest in 299 communities, consisting of 280 current communities and 19 development communities. The communities were further classified into Same Store, Other Stabilized, Redevelopment, and Unconsolidated categories, based on their attributes and operational status.

AvalonBay Communities defines NOI as total property revenue less direct property operating expenses, excluding corporate-level income and expenses, and considers it an important performance measure to understand the core operations of its communities. For the three months ended March 31, 2024, the Company reported Residential NOI of $483,657,000, reflecting an increase from $453,814,000 in the same period in the prior year.

The Company's financial goal is to increase long-term shareholder value through the development, acquisition, ownership, and operation of apartment communities in its markets, while maintaining a capital structure aligned with its business risks. With a focus on leading metropolitan areas characterized by growing employment, higher cost of home ownership, and a vibrant quality of life, AvalonBay Communities aims to achieve superior risk-adjusted returns over the long term on its apartment community investments relative to other markets. The market has reacted to these announcements by moving the company's shares -0.1% to a price of $192.26. For more information, read the company's full 10-Q submission here.
