The Top 10 Advantages of Living in a Small Apartment
Review the facts – let’s face it. Apartments in new developments are getting smaller. But that doesn’t have to be a bad thing for renters or be a downer in your leasing presentation.
Rather than simply coming up with solutions for how your residents can make do with the itty-bitty square footage…
‘But where will I put my all of my shoes?!’
…you can help them focus on harder-to-spot advantages that can sell them on leasing – or renewing their lease.
To help you out, I thought about what I love most about my own home – a small space indeed – which I share with my husband and very large pup.
Here is my list of the top 10 advantages of living in a small apartment.
Feel free to borrow or steal as needed for your next leasing presentation!
- There is less space to fill. Rather than having to buy furniture to fill rooms we don’t use, I used that money to buy one piece I really adored.
- No room for unwanted overnight guests!
- Utilities are cheap.
- I will never be a hoarder because I can’t be. There is no room.
- It is harder to misplace things.
- Only one bathroom to clean!
- We spend more time outdoors and exploring our community.
- We got creative with displays, storage, and design.
- Our art gets noticed.
- Our small space has brought us closer together.
These tips are great for focusing on the positives of a small apartment. Review the features each apartment style in your community offers, then find ways to sell pluses that outweigh – or even can distract from – any negatives.
