Keeping rental occupancy rates high is important in order to make sure you have the resources necessary to maintain the property, as well as to earn profits for the owners. One effective way to increase rental retention rates, as well as draw in new tenants, is to feature in-home stackable washer and dryer models in each of your units. Depending on the size of your community, this could be a major project, but, once it is complete, not only will your tenants appreciate being able to do laundry at home, but you will also start to notice a return on your investment in purchasing washers and dryers for your community.
Preparing for Your Stackable Washer and Dryer Installation Project
The first thing you need to do is determine where the stackable washer and dryer models are going to be installed in your rental units. If the units do not currently have washer and dryer connections, you want to select a hallway storage closet or other area that provides convenient access to hot and cold water lines, 110V and 220V electrical wiring, and a discharge drain. One suggested location is in the kitchen or near it, since the kitchen has all of these connections. You do not have to worry about dryer venting if you select ventless dryer models.
After you decide where you are installing the stacked laundry pairs, the next step is to prepare the units and order your washers and dryers with stacking kits.
