Amenities Multifamily Properties Should Consider to Appeal to Families

Modern Gem Design :: Amenities Multifamily Properties Should Consider to Appeal to Families

Did you know that 33% of renter households have kids? If you haven’t considered kid-friendly amenities at your property then you might be missing out on appealing to a third of your potential audience! Today we’re discussing different options that can help your property stand out for families.


When it comes to kids, having a playground is usually the go-to amenity for properties. If your property has available space, this can be a great option to have onsite so that kids are able to play where they live which makes life a lot easier on parents! Plus, it gives kids chance to get outside to run around and burn off some energy which can also be a perk to other tenants.

Daycare Services

If you want an amenity that will set your property apart and you have the resources to do so, onsite daycare can be a huge draw for working parents. Finding quality daycare services nearby is often a top concern and having it available onsite can be a game changer. If you don’t have the resources to do so, another option is to partner up with a local daycare provider for this service as well. By partnering up, you’ll be supporting local businesses while also providing a coveted service to your residents.

Community Center

Having a community center that can be reserved by families can be another great amenity as well. Renting out places can be costly for children’s birthday parties and other celebrations so having a space available within your complex can be a great option. Another perk to having a community room is having the option to host seasonal events for kids at your property. This is another great way for your tenants to mix and mingle and get to know their neighbors. When it comes to families, having a home that feels like a community is top of mind for continuing to rent.

Theater Room

One last option you may want to consider is having a theatre room. This is another unique amenity that tenants get excited about and it can be great for kids too. Families can reserve the room to watch their favorite movies as a private theater which is always an extra special treat for both kids and parents alike!

As with all amenities, it’s all about adding value to your residents’ lives, both adults and children alike! This helps keep them satisfied and happy to continue to renew at your property meaning these amenities will have a great ROI for you. If you don’t already have amenities appealing to families then now is the time! Give us a call today and we can discuss some options that may best fit your property.

5 Wellness Amenities to Consider Adding to Your Multifamily Property

Modern Gem Design :: 5 Wellness Amenities to Consider Adding to Your Multifamily Property

It’s no secret that wellness is becoming increasingly more important to people and many companies are shifting their focus to help cater to this. In fact, many multifamily properties are focused on creating a wellness community. This means adding new amenities and other services to be more in line with spas or even high-end gyms. The main focus is to encourage residents to be active, get outside in nature and promote a healthy lifestyle. If you’re looking to add some new amenities to your property, you might want to consider some of these!

Walking Path

If you have extra land around the perimeter of your property, you may want to consider adding a walking path. This encourages residents of all fitness levels to get outside in nature for some exercise. Many will use it for a daily walk while others will use it for a running path. While it may be a bit of an investment upfront to level the ground and pave a path, it will have minimal upkeep after it is completed, meaning your return on investment will be high!

Community Garden or Living Wall

Having plants has become increasingly popular among all ages recently. Many millennials are filling their homes with houseplants, while other adults enjoy having a garden to tend to. Incorporating this trend into your community can have a huge benefit on residents’ wellness. Try adding a community garden where residents can reserve a plot for themselves. This not only gets them outside and moving but allows them to grow their own fresh, healthy vegetables! No space for a community garden? Consider adding a living wall in a shared space that residents can enjoy. Somewhere like the business center or game room will help encourage residents to mingle while still feeling the effects of nature.

Update Exercise Room

When most think of wellness, they think of exercise so you want to make sure your exercise room is in tip top shape! This means updating any older equipment and adding anything new that you’ve had requested from residents. This might even include some functional fitness equipment like a rock climbing wall for example. This will give residents something new and fun to try while also getting in a good workout! Another suggestion you may also want to consider is separate workout rooms where residents can do yoga, kickboxing, or another activity without disturbing (or being disturbed) by others in the gym.

Wellness Services

Your amenities don’t always have to be physical spaces you provide to your residents (although those are extremely important). Adding some services focused on wellness can help make a huge impact on residents. Consider adding a bicycle repair service or an all-natural cleaning service for residents to book through your office. Both of these options and others will provide a trusted service your residents desire without having to do the added research on their own, showing your residents you are committed to their health and wellness as much as they are!  

Water and Air Filters

While energy efficient appliances are an easy way to show your commitment to the environment, you can go a step further by adding water and air filters to your units. This can help purify the air and water your residents consume, helping with allergies and any other environmental effects that affect residents’ health. This is a great way to show your commitment to their health while saving them the inconvenience of having to integrate any other filters they may need.

These amenities may seem like extras to add but residents who want to live a healthier lifestyle will truly appreciate these upgrades. You’ll also be able to use these in your marketing to attract more qualified leads as well as premium rents helping to ultimately boost your bottom line.
