One of the biggest ways to differentiate your apartment complex from the competition is to make it more than just a home for your residents, but a true community. Adding amenities that allow residents to mingle with their neighbors and make new friends can increase both their satisfaction with your community and your retention rate.
- Game Rooms - Playing games together is an excellent way to turn strangers into friends. Create a game room in your clubhouse complete with billiards, board games, and kid-friendly games and host the occasional Game Night.
- Cafes - Offering your residents a place to sit, relax, drink coffee, and surf the net is a great way to bring people together. Don't limit yourself to a coffee pot in your leasing office; design it like a real cafe with comfortable seats and host events like open mic nights once a month to bring residents together.
- Dog Park - A dog park is wonderful for keeping your resident pet owners happy and it makes it easy for neighbors to meet each other and form friendships.
