As of December 2014, property managers in the United States make an average of approximately $44,000 per year, according to PayScale. Experience and geographic location are two factors that influence a property manager's salary.
It is the job of a property manager to be responsible for a residential or retail property. He oversees maintenance and security staff and organizes any service work that needs to be done to the property. A property manager is responsible for keeping track of the income, budget and payments for the property, and he often collects rent, processes leases and manages a waiting list when necessary.
