What Makes an Awesome Amenity?

Friday, May 13, 2016

Here are three reasons as to what makes an awesome amenity valuable:

1) Increased Value for the Resident

An amenity may be a deciding factor when selecting a community for future residents. Know who your residents are and what they want; it’ll make a huge difference.

2) It Makes Life Easier

A good amenity is one that makes users question how they lived without it until now. Basic examples include laundry capabilities and on-site transportation services like Zipcar.

3) Keep It Simple

Amenities don’t need to be elaborate. Electronic and keyless entry systems are affordable and a community maintenance team can install them. This is a simple upgrade and may be just the amenity needed to boost leases.
