The Portland rental market is very competitive – adding some amenities will go a long way to enhancing your property’s marketability:
Bike storage: Cater to tenants who are part of the bicycle revolution by providing bike stations for parking and storage.
Common areas: Tenants want to get to know their neighbors. Offering a common area replete with foosball or pool tables, big-screen HDTVs, and free Wi-Fi is a big draw. And, common areas can be rented out for social gatherings!
Hardwood floors: Replacing worn-out carpeting with vinyl, tile, or wood flooring provides surfaces that are easier to maintain and gives your units a more upscale look!
Kitchen appliances: Adding a dishwasher and garbage disposal or replacing old appliances with stainless steel models will modernize your complex.
Laundry facilities: Whether it’s including washer/dryers in the apartment, installing hookups for residents to use their own, or just converting a room onsite into a laundry room, tenants will appreciate not having to lug their dirty clothes to the nearest laundromat.
Outdoor spaces: Rooftop decks and terraces are all the rage for relaxing and entertaining guests—especially in buildings that don’t have decks or patios attached to units.
