  • You will prepare and review monthly financial statements for apartment communities and prepare monthly analytical review of account variances in support of the monthly close process.
  • You will prepare bank account reconciliations and resolve any issues around that.

  • You will ensure sub-ledgers and supporting schedules tie to the GL.
  • You will review financial statements and all monthly reports, and tie all supporting schedules to the financial statements.
  • You should understand the budget reporting requirements and will assist Operations in the preparation of the annual operating budget for the properties that are assigned to you.
  • You will complete and review the monthly close and prepare the required financial reports for management and HUD.
  • Of course, there are other projects and duties that could be assigned as well.
