The top ranked amenities by apartment dwellers can vary depending on the location, demographics, and lifestyle preferences of the residents. However, based on surveys and studies we have come across, there is a clear list of the most popular amenities apartment residents find value in. Flick's upcoming launch supports several 'must haves' in a new and unique way:
On-site maintenance and management: Having a responsive and reliable management team to handle maintenance requests and other issues can make living in an apartment more enjoyable. Flick's new communication platform allows residents to know management is listening, maintenance is scheduled, and, or, provides notice reminders about upcoming maintenance entry. Flick's temperature and humidity sensing capabilities can help management know about any HVAC issues before a resident call comes in.
Smart home technology: Apartments equipped with smart home technology, such as smart thermostats and lighting, are becoming increasingly popular. As the newest in-unit proptech device, Flick improves resident well-being by educating and engaging residents on how to lower energy bills, health and wellness and overall community engagement for higher property satisfaction. The BEST part is, Flick does not require a large investment in community-wide managed WiFi to get started.
Community events and activities: Social events, classes, and activities organized by the building management can help foster a sense of community and make apartment living more enjoyable. However, the best activities are only successful when residents actually show up! Flick's in-unit display provides reminders and allows residents to RSVP with the press of a button.
While the following are several other top 'must have' amenities residents are asking for, Flick has yet to support these areas, but you can bet they are top of mind and we are working hard to continue to expand our value to residents and property managers!
In-unit washer and dryer: Many people consider having a washer and dryer in their apartment to be a must-have convenience.
Fitness center: An on-site gym or fitness center is a popular amenity for people who want to stay fit and healthy without leaving their building.
Access to high-speed internet: Reliable and fast internet is essential for many people, especially those who work from home.
Rooftop or outdoor space: A rooftop deck, balcony, or outdoor common area can provide a much-needed escape from city life and a place to relax and socialize.
Pet-friendly policies: Apartments that allow pets and have amenities such as dog parks or pet washing stations are highly desirable for pet owners.
Parking: Easy and secure parking options, including covered parking and valet services, are important to many apartment dwellers who own cars.
Security features: On-site security cameras, controlled access to the building, and secure package delivery systems can provide peace of mind for residents.
