These days, many apartment renters expect their units to match their commitment to sustainable living. So in order to reach the lofty goal of full occupancy, you have to think outside the box. If you don’t, you may lose renters to property owners who made the effort. Check out a few eco-friendly ways to attract renters to your building.
Indoor air quality
Renters almost take for granted that the units they live in will have good indoor air quality. Be sure to update your air filtration system and swap out filters on a regular basis.
In a recent survey, the majority of respondents said they were “interested” or “very interested” in living in apartments that have certificates for energy efficiency or sustainable design. Consider doing an energy audit to see where your properties could cut down on waste and cost.
In addition to energy efficiency, even more respondents of the aforementioned survey said that buildings with recycling programs and other sustainability initiatives were very attractive to them. Make sure all residents know how your properties recycle different materials, and post the information prominently in common areas.
Finally, consider wowing potential renters with an ecologically-sound irrigation system. Give Smart Rain a call today!
