playgrounds and fun

Outdoor recreational facilities can be a powerful tool in attracting new residents to an apartment community. They make the property more attractive to potential residents and help increase its overall value. So if you’re looking to add some extra appeal to your complex and attract new residents, investing in playgrounds and fun amenities is the way to go.

Importance of Playgrounds and Fun Amenities

Here are some benefits of adding playgrounds and fun amenities to your apartment community:

amenitiesProvide a place for children to play safely: One of the main concerns for parents when moving to a new apartment community is whether their children will have a place to play safely. Kid’s playgrounds solve this problem and can be a huge selling point for your property.

Create a sense of community: Playgrounds provide a place for residents to gather and get to know one another. This sense of community can help to create loyalty among residents and reduce turnover.

Increase foot traffic and visibility for your property: If potential residents are driving by and see well-maintained playgrounds or other amenities, it can pique their interest and encourage them to stop and tour your community.

Increase your property value: Potential residents are looking for a community that offers more than just a place to live – they want a lifestyle. Playgrounds, soccer fields, gaming areas, and more send the message to potential buyers that your property is more than just a roof over their heads.

High-Value Apartment Amenities that Add Convenience

If you’re looking for the best ways to add some playtime fun to your apartment community, here are a few ideas to get you started:

Outdoor playground: A playground is one of the best features you can add to an apartment community, and it makes your complex more family-friendly and gives potential renters/buyers a great first impression. And considering most apartment households include school-age kids, this valuable amenity offers a space where they can exercise their bodies and their imaginations.

Tennis courts: Tennis courts are an excellent option for adding some fun and exercise to your community. They can be used for tennis lessons, social gatherings, or as a place to unwind and have fun. If you don’t have the space for a full tennis court, you could also consider adding a smaller tennis or pickleball court.

playgroundsArtificial turf soccer fields: Soccer is one of the most popular sports in the world, so it’s no surprise that many apartment communities are adding synthetic turf soccer fields to their list of amenities. They’re easy to maintain, can be used in all weather conditions, and offer a space for residents of all ages to enjoy.

Outdoor gaming areas: Another great way to encourage social interaction and get residents of all ages involved in the community is to add outdoor gaming areas. These can be simple features such as Ping-Pong tables, cornhole, horseshoes, shuffleboard, or more complex setups with multiple games. Adding these features gives residents a reason to stick around and spend time at your complex – which is excellent for business.

Adding or Renovating Basketball court: You don’t have to be a superstar like LeBron James to enjoy playing some hoops. A basketball court is an excellent way to add value to your apartment complex and make it more appealing to new residents. Have an old basketball court? You can give it a facelift with some fresh paint and new hoops.
