• Recent research shows that renters not only want technology to be a part of their renting experience—they expect it. Technology plays a large role in every stage of a renter’s experience, beginning with how potential renters find and apply for apartments. Over 60% of prospective renters surveyed only look online for a place to live.
• Technology improvements such as smart thermostats and new appliances can give a community edge over the competition and justify higher rents.
• By the end of 2018, predictions are that 20 percent of households will have adopted some sort of home automation using smart devices—and that smart home automation devices of all kinds will be mainstream within five years. Almost a quarter of renters already own a virtual personal assistant (VPA), and half of those looking to rent say they’re at least “somewhat more likely” to rent for a free smart device.
