Apartment Community Trends to Look For in 2020

Monday, December 23, 2019 - Article by: Myke Thomas - Telecommunication - Message

The apartment community is evolving day-by-day, and the new decade is ushering in a load of new trends for apartment seekers throughout the country. These trends focus on convenience, going-green, comfort, style, and technology. Let's take a look at the upcoming trends for 2020.

  • High-Quality Management

Almost every tenant has experienced renting from a company or individual who ruins the resident experience. Nearly 31% of renters have cited dissatisfaction with management as a reason for moving. While you can't truly know what the resident experience is like until you've lived in a community, look at online reviews and the community's website to get an idea of their reputation and customer service.

  • Pet-Friendly Amenities

Being pet-friendly is a must for today's renter. Roughly 70% of millennials own pets, and they're today's biggest renting demographic. In 2020, being pet-friendly isn't enough. An on-site pet park with space for your pet to roam around is critical, especially in a big city where they don't have a lot of opportunities to get outside and explore. Making your resident's furry friends feel at home is critical to success.

  • Smart Appliances, Smart Apartments

As the trend toward technology and convenience skyrockets year by year, apartment communities are doing their best to keep up. For starters, a dishwasher, refrigerator, and oven that integrate with Amazon's Alexa are great starters. These fridges boast an LCD screen that allows you to create a grocery list and more. Controlling these appliances when you're not home is a game-changer.

Smart Locks are part of an overhaul to security that is of the utmost importance for apartment seekers. Wireless security systems, Blink cameras, and smart locks all use technology to make renters feel safe and secure within their modern apartment.

  • Keeping it Green

Enhanced HVAC systems and smart thermostats round out the list of smart features that not only increase efficiency but also cut a large chunk out of the energy bill for renters and apartment communities. Millennials feel strongly about social responsibility, so sustainable energy sources and energy-efficient appliances are a must.

Green spaces are just as important to renters. As a result, more and more apartment communities are trending toward vast, green outdoor areas for socializing and entertaining. In large cities where space is limited, every inch of green is a bonus. A Zen courtyard with a fountain and grilling area can influence an on-the-fence renter very quickly.
