When tenants are looking for a new apartment, there are many things they’ll consider: cost, location, space, and amenities. Providing your community with desirable features will not only attract new tenants but will also keep regular residents around longer. An apartment pool are more likely to attract new residents than those without.
With that in mind, let’s take a look at some of the reasons why you should consider installing an apartment pool into your residential complex.
Increased Tenant Satisfaction
The more amenities you offer your tenants, the happier they will be. And the happier they are, the longer they are likely to stay. Adding features that not only bring in new tenants but also provide value to the tenants your apartment already has, is going to be beneficial in the long run. A good apartment pool acts as a source for socializing and community in your complex, leading to a reduction in turnover — which is not only inconvenient, it’s costly.
Swimming is a great form of exercise, and allows tenants to soak up that vitamin D. But how does having healthier tenants benefit your apartment complex? It’s proven that people who engage in regular exercise take fewer days off of work — meaning they’ll be more stable at their jobs, and won’t have any issue paying their rent. It also decreases their likelihood of getting sick in general, helping your community stay more sanitary. Just be sure to keep the pool clean and bacteria-free, as it is a place where many people congregate.
Higher Rent Prices
Perhaps the most important benefit of adding a pool to your apartment complex is the value it adds. Tenants are willing to pay more for a complex that has a pool, meaning you can increase rent. Over a long period of time, this will offset both the cost of building a swimming pool and the regular maintenance it requires.
One thing that draws in potential tenants is the general atmosphere of the community. A pool adds beauty, and a general sense of warmth, community, and friendliness. This is one amenity that will definitely stand out to new renters and will create a “resort” type feel in your outdoor space. And a tenant with a more positive attitude toward their living space will have a better relationship with you as the landlord, leading to fewer complaints, and less stress for you.
If you’re adding an apartment pool, remember that it will need consistent maintenance. When installing a pool, be sure to include a proper deck. This way, tenants stay safe while around the pool and the pool stays in great shape over time. The experts at WICR can help ensure your apartment’s pool is done right.
