Although COVID is starting to fade into the background, it’s left some new market trends in its wake. Here are some of the top new trends in corporate housing.
The Importance of Connection
First of all, everyone seems to have upgraded their pet situation, meaning if you didn’t have any pets before COVID, you probably at least got a houseplant. If you already had a houseplant, you probably got a dog.
Jokes aside, there has been a sharp increase in the amount of households with one, if not two, pets. Living in pet friendly buildings, especially ones with dog runs and pet amenities, has become an increasingly important criterion for renters.
Secondly, the importance of human interaction in daily business and customer service contexts has grown as well. Although Suite Home clients have always been able to access team members for their customer service needs, talking to live members of the Suite Home team has become increasingly important for clients who value direct answers from people over automated bots now more than ever.
The Many New Functions of Home
Having a comfortable living space doesn’t cut it anymore. These days, residents need their living spaces to also function as their offices, recreation spaces, and even home fitness areas.
Balconies and outdoor spaces are now preferred more than ever as well.
