The company-wide event began in 2011 as a one-week celebration but quickly
grew into a month-long program. The planning of events and activities to
recognize residents began in early spring 2014.

"Resident Appreciation Month is of vital importance to our Company's
commitment to resident retention and satisfaction," said Bernard Quinn, Senior
Vice President of Property Management Operations. "Home Properties leads the
industry in resident retention because we understand the value of happy
residents who love their homes and feel appreciated."

Resident Appreciation Month has become a much-anticipated annual event by both
residents and staff. Staff members develop and participate in activities,
contests, and events that are customized for all Home Properties communities.
There are many types of events from "Decorate Your Balcony" contests and
staff-run car washes to community cookbooks like the one created this year by
The Village at Marshfield's staff in Marshfield, Massachusetts.

"As a staff, we had fun watching our residents get excited all over again
about being part of our community," said LaSalette Kershaw, Property Manager,
The Village at Marshfield. "Our reward comes from knowing our residents are
glad to call us home!"

Many communities invited area businesses to provide complimentary services and
discounted products for Home Properties residents as part of Resident
Appreciation Month.

"Hopefully, we created fun memories for our residents," said Kershaw. "On July
1^st, I think it's safe to say we had exhausted, but happy, residents and an
even stronger sense of community."
