How would you like to be able to go to the gym, hang out at a coffee bar, walk your dog, and charge your hybrid without leaving home? Well, with modern apartment amenities, you can do all of that and more. In recent years, apartment community developers have stepped up their game to meet the needs of today’s renters. They have taken notice of the need for work-life balance and responded accordingly with upscale amenities. And while yes, you are paying for these perks as part of your monthly rent, if you weigh the cost and benefits of time saved, you will see they are well worth it.
Here are some modern apartment amenities you should be taking advantage of in your community:
Online lease management and rent payment
No more trips to the leasing office or post office to sign your lease or mail your rent check. (Does anybody write checks anymore?) Review and sign your lease electronically every term and pay your rent online. You can have your rent payment automatically deducted from your bank account to make things even easier.
Onsite fitness center
Cancel your gym membership. Many modern apartment communities have fitness centers and some are open 24/7. You are no longer locked into specific hours when your gym is open or long-term membership contracts. Work out whenever you want. Some apartment communities also offer walking trails or access to parks and recreation areas.
Pool and cookout area
Most municipalities prohibit any type of grills on apartment patios or balconies. No problem. Your apartment community will have a designated grilling area and firepit for grilling or making s’mores. And while swimming pools are standard fare at most apartment complexes, these days, you will find a heated pool, often with a poolside bar area. You can do all of your swimming, sunning, cooking out, and socializing in one area.
Special amenities for dogs
Now you have a place to take your dog for exercising and socializing with other dogs. Many apartment communities have fenced-in dog parks and dog stations on the property for disposing of waste. Tired of the mess and frustration of trying to bathe your dog in the bathtub? Many apartment complexes have dog wash areas that are more comfortable for you and your dog.
Other popular apartment amenities include online maintenance requests, full-sized washers and dryers in apartments, a coffee bar, community centers for hosting events, on-site recreation, hybrid car charging stations, and much more. By using the perks that are available to you, you will get the most out of apartment living and reap the benefits and rewards to enhance your work-life balance.
