Change in Directors or Principal Officers, Amendments to Articles of Inc. or


Item 5.02 Departure of Directors or Certain Officers; Election of Directors;
Appointment of Certain Officers; Compensatory Arrangements of Certain Officers.

(a) At a meeting duly called and held on April 28, 2014, the Compensation Committee of the Board of Directors (the "Board") of Home Properties, Inc. (the "Company") recommended and the independent directors of the Board approved the financial goals portion of the performance criteria for the bonus to be paid in 2015 for services rendered in 2014 under the Company's Incentive Compensation Plan as follows:

Metric Weighting Threshold Target High OFFO per share 20% $4.45 $4.53 $4.61 SS NOI Growth 20% 2.5% 3.0% 3.5% ROIC 20% 5th Place 3rd or 4th Place 1st or 2nd Place

The Compensation Committee and the Board continue to consider Funds from Operations to be an important indicator of the Company's overall performance. Operating Funds from Operations ("OFFO") is an absolute goal that was set based on the Company's budget for 2014 and as disclosed in its guidance. OFFO equals Funds from Operations net of costs associated with the acquisition of real estate. Same-store Net Operating Income ("SSNOI") is now also an absolute goal that was set based on the Company's budget for 2014 and as disclosed in its guidance. SSNOI is considered by the Compensation Committee and the Board to be an important driver of real estate values and stockholder value. This metric was a relative metric in prior years with performance measured against the performance of the Company's multifamily peer group. The Compensation Committee and the Board believe that Return on Invested Capital ("ROIC") captures the value created by the Company's business strategy of acquiring apartment communities and repositioning them for long-term growth. It is a relative metric with performance measured against the performance of the Company's Multifamily Peer Group. For 2014, the Multifamily Peer Group consists of the following peers:

Apartment Investment & Management Company (AIV)

Associated Estates Realty Corporation (AEC)

AvalonBay Communities, Inc. (AVB)

Camden Property Trust (CPT)

Equity Residential (EQR)

Essex Property Trust, Inc. (ESS)

Mid-America Apartment Communities, Inc. (MAA)

Post Properties, Inc. (PPS)

UDR, Inc. (UDR)

A copy of Amendment Number One to the 2011 Stock Benefit Plan is attached as Exhibit 10.1.
