Independent Rental Owner (IRO)

The National Apartment Association (NAA) defines an Independent Rental Owner (IRO) as an individual or individuals that are active in both the ownership and management of their properties.

Main Characteristics of Independent Rental Owners (IRO)

  • They have their own money invested in the property (with or without partners) and oversee Multifamily OR Single-Family housing.
  • They are actively involved in the management of their properties.
  • They self-identify based on the above criteria and not by portfolio unit count.

Considerations for Independent Rental Owners (IRO)

  • Membership is defined by experience and not by unit count. IROs may consist of less than 65 units  Resources are provided based on all levels of experience specific for each member.
  • Smaller sized properties and portfolios generally require a unique property management style, as opposed to the management style used for properties of larger unit count.
  • IRO Education and Networking opportunities may also be beneficial for those that work for an IRO, such as property managers, managing directors and other employees or those that conduct business with IROs, such as supplier partners.
  • Self-identification is an important part of being an IRO. The NAA IRO program is built around all facets of multifamily management and encourages learning and conversation with likeminded individuals.
