Return On Investment
Smart technology will do more than add convenience to your residents' everyday life; it will also allow you to increase your properties' rent. When S2 Capital offered its residents the option to upgrade to smart technology, including locks, lights, and thermostats for an extra $25 a month, 82% of their residents opted. You can increase the rent on your apartments by $25 to $40, even with simple upgrades such as a hub, locks, thermostat, and Wi-Fi package. You might be tempted to wait until smart technology is more affordable. Right now, smart home technology is considered a perk that renters are willing to pay extra for. As smart technology becomes the norm, however, it will become an expectation, and you won't be able to charge extra for it. By installing it now, you will see an ROI and will cover the costs down the line.
Installing home automation technology in your apartments will allow you to minimize unexpected repairs with preventative maintenance. Preventative measures are incredibly valuable to property managers. Sensors will alert you when there are potential leaks, mold, or broken HVAC systems, saving you thousands of dollars and reducing the stress of fixing these issues. Not only does this affect your staff's productivity, but it also inconveniences your residents, making them unhappy. By fixing an issue before it causes them problems, you minimize your maintenance requests and increases their satisfaction. You’ll both save money and improve your customer’s opinions of your complex.
Adding smart home technology allows you to increase the efficiency of your staff. Automate tasks that would typically take up your property managers' time. Smart locks mean that you won't have to rekey doors when a tenants lease expire; instead, remotely reprogram them after the move out day without having to go on site. Smart thermostats will moderate the vacant units' temperature, and they can schedule the HVAC to kick back in right before a tour. Your residents will be able to control the smart technology in their apartment and automate tasks such as registering guests and issuing access codes. Focus on marketing your facility and increasing resident satisfaction. Save your company on energy bills and personnel costs.
