Equity Residential (NYSE: EQR) is a real estate investment trust that specializes in apartment complexes. They are "America's Choice for Apartment Living." They are the largest publicly available real estate company that owns, develops and manages multi-unit housing in the United States. They're based in Chicago.

They have 200,000 apartments, in 400 properties, in 16 states and the District of Columbia. They are in the S&P 500, and were named by FORTUNE magazine as one of America's Most Admired Companies.

Their aquisition strategy is to go after properties with at least 200 units, built after 1990, in major metropolitan or fast growing areas, and prefer all cash transactions. However, they are now focusing more on the cities where they make the most money, and getting away from other locations. And they are expanding, because they believe there will be increased demand for apartments given the continued weakness of the housing market.

Their biggest markets are Orlando Florida, Atlanta Georgia, and Phoenix Arizona.
