For decades, apartments have had leasing offices on-site to help handle any issues that may arise. However, we’re going through a paradigm shift in how we look at apartment leasing and living. Owners and operators are beginning to see residents being more comfortable with and even asking for more self-service concepts. As such, it’s easier than ever to imagine a future where leasing offices aren’t required. If that sounds like a novel concept, read on to get a glimpse into a world where apartment complexes are defined by their self-service systems and leasing offices are nowhere to be found.
These days, we’re starting to see tenants being able to take advantage of all kinds of self-service tech. This includes the ability to book, navigate, and run their tours and applications. It’s all made secure through ID verification and remote access, and interactive maps open the door to new and exciting possibilities. Although some of these changes were necessitated by COVID-19, people are starting to realize the benefits of scheduling a tour on their own time and leisure.
Better Building Design
As we go forward, more and more building designs will incorporate these ideas from the get-go. That may mean less space for on-site staff, but it could also integrate easier ways for people to get what they need. Imagine if you can use digital services or a centralized call center to get all of your amenities. A more simplified building design can reduce the need for staff and upkeep, helping create a more seamless experience from creating the building itself.
Thanks to the Internet of Things, apartment owners and operators have more options than ever. Intelligent cameras allow for better security, better parking, and allow easier surveillance of the site. Package lockers can now let residents punch in a number and get their mail and any other deliveries. Good design matched with new kinds of tech allows for a future where we no longer need leasing offices, as people can get everything they need on their own.
Much of this wouldn’t be possible without a quality Wi-Fi setup. With mesh networks and all the bells and whistles, it’s easier than ever to set up remote access, run numerous applications, and still access everything remotely.
