As you market your apartment community, do you know which amenities to tout? With renters on the move and your marketing efforts and dollars at a premium, we know it’s critical that you promote the most sought after features. Perhaps what they wanted before is different now. So, we commissioned a survey* in May 2021 and asked renters which amenities they looked for when searching for apartments. So, as you create your marketing plan, or even prioritize community upgrades or improvements, you’ll have this data at your fingertips.
Survey respondents ranked the following amenities the highest. It seems the tried and true conveniences are still in hot demand.
On the flipside, they ranked these as the least important. While nice to have, these didn’t seem to entice respondents as much.
- Bike repair center
- Pet grooming
- Car wash center
- Media/game rooms
- Bike storage
With the world still trying to find its footing, we find it more important now than ever to really get a pulse on how the pandemic has and is impacting the multifamily industry. So, we have more intel for you based on the survey and recent news articles:
