What Amenities Do Tenants Really Want?

New TenantsIf you’re a landlord, you may be wondering which amenities matter, and which aren’t worth the trouble. Here’s our guide to the amenities tenants really want:

Outdoor Space

Whether it’s a fenced-in yard, a balcony or a patio, tenants love outdoor spaces where they can enjoy the warmer months. Most are willing to pay more for this sought-after amenity.

Pet-Friendly Policies

Around 65 percent of people own a pet, most of which are dogs and cats. Having a flexible pet policy is a great way to attract tenants.


Every tenant wants to feel safe and secure in their home. At minimum, exterior locks should always be changed between tenants. Consider installing a security system as well.

Reliable Maintenance

A rental that’s free of frustrating maintenance issues is important to potential tenants, as well as timely responses to requests for repair.

In-Unit Washers and Dryers

Prospective renters will be glad they can skip their weekly trip to the laundromat when you provide washers and dryers in their units.

Window Coverings

Skip the dingy plastic mini-blinds and attract good tenants with attractive window coverings. Fresh curtains can make any rental look a little more put together.


Off-street parking is an amenity that tends to attract tenants, particularly in urban areas where congestion and street can cleaning make it tough to find a curb spot.
