What makes people choose where to live? What are the factors influencing the decision-making process most? What do today’s homeowners or renters need in order to live comfortably or renew their lease? We will provide some insights on these questions below.

Digital Presence

Technology trends and online convenience are leading this category. During the search period in particular, online presence of the property, house or apartment complex plays a very important role. Potential residents want to check pictures/videos, read reviews, and even pay for their housing online. A detailed and customer focused website is another medium used by prospects. Providing a responsive website that is compatible on multiple devices can make a difference especially for younger tech-savvy clients.

Property Features

Amenities and property characteristics are vital for making a decision where to live. Are pets allowed? How close are educational, recreational, and other facilities? How is the transportation system in that area? These questions and many others are asked by those who are trying to find a new home and make sure that it is also the right home for them. With the new trends toward living a healthier lifestyle, the majority of potential residents find it necessary to have an gym, pool or areas to workout too.

Neighborhood Characteristics – Noise Complaints and More

It is not just the activity-focused amenities that people care about. The neighborhood itself plays a significant role in making a decision regarding a place to live. Some requirements are staying the same for everyone, for example, less noise. As people realize the importance of sleep and living within a peaceful environment, best practices for urban living becomes more complicated. None of us want to hear their neighbors’ conversations, barking dogs, street traffic or nightlife 24/7. That is why many people are looking for solutions that create stress-free environment.

Research the type of amenities at a location and ask about the living quality prior to signing the lease.
