Residents have high expectations in 2019. Here's 5 high-end apartment amenities that are guaranteed to make yours smile. ????
Searching for your next perfect rental? Or, scoping out what best-in-class properties are offering their residents in the current #amenitiesrace? Look no further.
We know that today's residents expect more than just pools, in-home laundry, and dog parks. Here are 5 new premium apartment amenities that property managers should definitely consider offering their residents in 2019 and beyond.
1. EV charging stations
The modern tenant may already own, or may be dreaming of owning, an electric car. For eco-conscious individuals, having a built-in electric vehicle (EV) charging station in the parking lot would be a priority amenity to search for.
Don't currently have a EV charging station at your apartment? No problem. Companies like ChargePoint and EverCharge can work with your property manager and/or HOA to install charging stations in your parking lot. Just share with them your #Tesla dreams and they'll come around!
2. Fitness classes and Peloton
Having a standard gym is very typical of apartment complexes today, but offering classes to residences will truly make your property standout from the rest. Everything from yoga, spin, Zumba, hip hop, meditation, HIIT workouts, and more would not only delight your active residents, but it will help build an engaged community at your property.
In addition to scheduled classes, consider including highly-popular #Peloton bikes in the gym so that tenants have access to digital classes via their own paid subscriptions.
3. Tech-empowered apartments
With pre-installed smart assistants like Hello Alfred, technology has made "easy apartment living" the easiest its ever been in history. Wow your residents with apartment amenities that will make it as easy as a few clicks to book dog walkings, personal training sessions, and cleaning services (Amenify). Plus, have your residents pay rent using their iPhones (Dwello).
4. Luxury co-working spaces + printing
Gone are the days of the boring, dated business center. Upgrade your apartments' working area to a modern co-working space that includes the business amenities that every #telecommuter or student would love, including free printing, access to high-speed internet, ergonomic chairs, and free cold brew coffee.
Wish you could outsource your free #printing amenity? Look no further. Get in touch with PrintWithMe to learn more about how you can offer this crucial and convenient amenity that residents absolutely love.
5. Community building
Creating spaces and events that encourage community building within your apartment is one of the best ways to grow long-term loyalty and resident happiness at your property. For example, Companies like Kin are also exploring co-living arrangements for families that encourage friends and families to grow together.
Consider building spaces such as outdoor kitchens, community gardens, gaming pavilions, and outdoor movie theaters / sports screens, and host events that your residents can enjoy based on their interests.
By making steps to offer these types of premium amenities to your residents, not only will you stand out amongst a sea of similar apartment offerings in 2019, but you'll be helping to build a happy, healthy, and connected community in your locale.
