Technology is ever-evolving and is making an impact in our homes. The more products that launch, the more we implement them. Apartments are now taking up the technology trend.
The most significant selling point in an apartment is the appliances. Washers and dryers are the top according to Apartments.com data. Some renters may feel overwhelmed in the transition from traditional to smart devices. However, there's nothing to fear as they are relatively simple to use. From your phone, you can track the progress of something, change settings while you're away, and stop or start tasks that you may have forgotten.
Some benefits of these products include more control, instant alerts when tasks finish or if there's a problem; remote start or stop, set a timer to turn on or off; conserve energy and save money.
Refrigerators are one noticeable smart appliance. Both Samsung and LG have created screens integrated into the appliance to see what's inside, check the weather, make a grocery list and see what's about to spoil.
Whether you have an Amazon Alexa, Google Assistant or Siri, they all help you with any task. You can be folding laundry in the other room and need to start dinner. You can use the voice assistant to tell your oven to preheat to the desired temperature. Alternatively, perhaps you need to start the next load of clothes by having it start a specific cycle. Voice assistance is how apartments are attracting renters nowadays.
The concept of Co-Living is nothing new - it's been around for nearly 200 years. Cities like New York and Miami, where the rent is high, you'll find this type of community. Co-Living is where renters live with roommates and share common spaces, but have their respected bedroom. This concept gears towards those who are tight-on-cash. It's much easier to divide rent and amenity costs. You'll enjoy the same options of utilities, cable- and internet-ready homes.
The biggest issue about new couples renting is his and her closet space. Usually, it's the female who has more clothes than the male and is always a fight as who gets what amount of space. However, apartments are now incorporating those into the master bedrooms. You'd still need to utilize closet storage hacks, but you'll no longer be battling out over that shelf space.
