If you’re a landlord, you’re currently in a pretty good position. Many people are now choosing to rent rather than own, and according to the Pew Research Center, more U.S. households are headed by renters than at any point since at least 1965. Unfortunately, this does come with its own set of challenges for landlords, particularly retaining tenants when there is so much rental availability out there.
Landlords can retain tenants by improving customer service, particularly through technology, fast communication, and building a sense of community for renters.
There are many ways to build a sense of community for tenants, one of which is by focusing on health and wellness. A report by the Nielsen Global Health and Wellness Survey recently reported that more younger consumers than ever before are concerned about healthy eating, and that the most health-centric group of consumers in general is Generation Z – the group that is next in line as prospective tenants. With this in mind, landlords should consider offering health-conscious community events, such as on-site yoga and holistic wellness courses. Chasing Nirvana Yoga offers these types of classes for landlord-owned properties, office buildings, and everything in between.
