Why You Should Install Washers and Driers on Your Rental Property
Doing laundry is a necessary part of life. The amount of laundry that any given person needs to do general depends on their family size. While a single person may need to do laundry only once or twice a week, a larger family may need to do several loads of laundry in a day. If you are the owner of an apartment complex, you should always consider installing laundry equipment for your renters to use. Here are some of the reasons why we believe allowing renters access to laundry equipment is an essential addition.
One of the main concerns of any renter is the access they have to laundry equipment. It’s possible that prospective renters may shy away from signing a lease on a property that does not have a laundry room on the premises. When you give tenants to option of doing their laundry without having to dry anywhere, you add appeal to your property.
A nice feature of setting up a community laundry room is that you provide your renters with the opportunity to socialize. A good rule of thumb is to set up multiple washers and driers so this way your tenants are not overly restricted in their access to the machines.
Renters will immediately be drawn to the community environment that you set up in your laundry room and may be inclined to do laundry with their fellow neighbors and establish a relationship with them. This could lead to a higher chance of setting up a safer environment for your property and result in happy tenants.
An in-unit machine gives renters the ability to do laundry in the comfort of their own unit. The presence of a washer and drier instantly adds appeal to the apartment as renters now have the added benefit of finishing laundry around their busy schedule. Incorporating this kind of accessory into your units is an ideal way to attract long-term renters.
