Housing preferences are constantly evolving. But if there’s one thing that remains true for real estate lessors, it’s that people are willing to pay for luxury.
In this day and age, the lines separating luxury and comfort seem to blur. Apartment dwellers don’t just consider their homes a place to sleep, eat or store stuff in. It’s also their sanctuary and a place to meet other people. This is why real estate developers are scrambling to provide amenities that cater to these needs.
If you want to make your apartment complex fit for celebrities, these luxurious apartment amenities should be on your list.
1. State-of-the-Art Fitness Center
Physical fitness has become an integral part of our daily life. But with the rising urban crime rate, jogging in public parks have become riskier. That’s why many high-end apartment buildings nowadays have state-of-the-art fitness centers.
These fitness centers usually include the latest workout facilities complete with fitness instructors and even flatscreen televisions.
2. Pet Parks
One common concern among apartment hunters are facilities for their pets. Due to sanitary and safety reasons, most landlords are banning pets in their buildings. This is why adding a pet park to your property gives you a competitive advantage over other lessors.
According to the National Pet Owners Survey, an estimated 67% of US households own a pet. Having facilities that will cater to the needs of these people will attract renters who are willing to pay a premium for the sake of their furbabies’ comfort.
3. Digital Locks
According to a privately-commissioned survey, millennials are willing to pay more for smart home upgrades. First in their list is an electronic door lock.
Digital locks eliminate the need for keys that can easily be misplaced. Most smart locks use either fingerprints or passcodes or a combination of the two. For good measure, some brands also include keyholes.
4. Voice Control Features
Aside from digital locks, a new emerging trend among “techy” homeowners is the voice control feature. It converts an apartment into a “smart home”. With just a few voice commands, homeowners can control their devices, the lights, and even their fireplace.
