To win as many renters as possible, apartment communities commonly offer an array of amenities and services, from WiFi lounges and dog parks to yoga classes and package delivery. However, it’s no secret that many of those perks are, at best, underutilized.

This week’s #AptChat centers on what apartment dwellers don’t use, what they actually want, and what’s expected — not a bonus— today. These are the highlights. (Click on the links to jump straight to a specific question.)

What are you seeing as the most desired amenities in your market today? What are renters asking for?

What are amenities and amenity spaces that residents don’t ask for or use? What amenities have you *stopped* including?

How about resident services? As residents expect more, are there new services that you’re providing that you haven’t before?

What other amenities do residents gravitate to now? What used to be amenities but are now just expected utilities?

Our next #AptChat is slated for Tuesday, August 2, 2016 at 12 pm Eastern, and we’ll be discussing quick wins to get last-minute leases. In the meantime, be sure to sign up for #AptChat updates to get these recaps and more delivered straight to your inbox!
