Apartment Investment and Management Company (AIV - Free Report) , commonly known as Aimco, reported a first-quarter 2021 net income per share of 14 cents, significantly up from 3 cents reported in the year-ago quarter.

Unrealized gains on interest rate options and revenue growth supported results. In fact, first-quarter rental and other property revenues of $38.6 million were 3.9% higher than the prior-year quarter’s $38.3 million.

In first-quarter 2021, Aimco collected 97.5% of residential rents due. It recognized 98.4% of revenues and reserved 160 basis points (bps) as bad debt.

Consequently, net operating income (NOI) declined 5.8% year over year to $21.5 million.

Average daily occupancy at the company’s operating multifamily communities sequentially improved 70 bps to 97.6% for the first quarter.

Its office building in Miami, FL — 1001 Brickell Bay Drive — is currently 72.4% occupied and the company collected 100% of rents due in the first quarter.

Performance of Other Residential REITs

Essex Property Trust Inc. (ESS - Free Report) reported first-quarter 2021 core FFO per share of $3.07, beating the Zacks Consensus Estimate of $3.04. The figure also surpassed the mid-point of the company’s first-quarter 2021 guidance by 4 cents per share. Sequentially, the company experienced lower cash concessions and delinquency, leading to a marginal improvement in same-property gross revenues and NOI.

UDR Inc. (UDR - Free Report) reported first-quarter 2021 FFO as adjusted per share of 47 cents, missing the Zacks Consensus Estimate of 48 cents. Also, the figure is lower than the prior year’s 54 cents. Results reflect the adverse impacts of the coronavirus pandemic. A decline in revenues from mature communities affected top-line growth.

Rental income of $597.6 million surpassed the consensus mark of $586.8 million.
