The pandemic caused many renters to reevaluate their housing priorities, whether it was teleworking triggering moves, digital nomads looking to join a flexible membership club, pet amenities dog owners won’t rent without, or the insatiable appetite for more packages.
Beyond national trends, there are several market-level nuances affecting renter preferences. National data paints an overall picture for the industry, but it is vital for operators to keep a finger on the pulse of each individual market in their portfolios, too, as trends vary by market.
