How to Build an Effective Multifamily Rental Business Profile

The market for rental homes is very competitive. Whether you are managing an apartment complex or helping clients rent out their condominiums, duplexes, or single family homes, one thing is for certain – you need a strong and effective rental business profile online. There are several different rental review websites, as well as other consumer-driven review sites, like Yelp.

Since there is a variety of online sites, the first thing you need to do is to pick at least one rental review website and at least one consumer-driven review site to build your profile on. Each site will require you to register your apartment community or rental business in order to claim and build a business profile.

Depending on the website, there are several key areas you need to focus on to create an effective online profile. In addition, avoid using text-speak and abbreviations in your online profiles when you describe your business. Specific information and details you should complete when building your profile include:

NAP (Name, Address, Phone) – Make sure your business name is spelled correctly. Carefully enter your address and phone number. It is important to use the same NAP data online, because it will make it easier for search engines to index your business and display it in local search results. If you abbreviated a street direction or ending, make sure it is consistent on all of your online profiles.

Select the Right Category – Review sites may require you to select a business category as part of configuring your business profile.

List Amenities and Features – Make sure to let prospects know what amenities and features your rental community offers, such as combination washer dryers, an onsite fitness center, security gates, security systems, a swimming pool, and so on.

Include a Website Link – Add a link to your website so prospects will be able to visit your site. If you do not have a website, it is okay to use the link to your Facebook or other social media pages.

Upload High Quality Pictures and Videos – Pictures and videos make it easier for prospects to review your rental homes online. Just make sure the pictures and videos of the model home are consistent with your actual units.

Tell People a Story – Remember to tell people about your rental community or business. People want to know your story and learn more about the community, how it has evolved, and how you specifically help your tenants and rental clients.

After your online profiles are set up, make sure to let others know about them, like updating brochures and promotional flyers to say your rental community is now featured on the review sites you choose. In addition, make sure to interact and respond to online reviews and feedback in a positive manner, to show people you care about your tenants.

Stackable Washer Dryer

Laundry Options for Homes without Washer and Dryer Connections

If your home does not have any washer and dryer connections, you might think visiting your local laundromat is your only solution for doing laundry. You would be surprised to learn this is not the only option you have available. Whether you rent your home or own it, you have other solutions which allow you to do laundry at home and stop making regular trips to the laundromat.

Options for Homeowners

One of the easiest ways to get in-home laundry is to install a LG washer dryer combo or stackable washer dryer with ventless drying. Ventless drying eliminates having to run a dryer vent through the walls and to the outdoors. With a washer and dryer combo, both the washing and drying functions are combined into a single appliance. It is one of the easier solutions to add in-home laundry with the least amount of work.

The only connections a combo laundry appliance needs are hot and cold water lines, discharge drain, and 110V standard outlet. Since these are the only connections required, it provides greater flexibility and a wide array of areas within the home to install the new appliance, such as in a bathroom, under the counter in your kitchen, or by converting a closet into your new laundry room. With a stacked washer and ventless dryer solution, the only additional connection required is a 220V appliance outlet.

If you do not have easy access to an 110V standard outlet or need to have a 220V appliance outlet installed, it is highly recommended to utilize the services of a qualified electrician to ensure the work is completed according to current building and fire codes. Tapping into existing water lines and discharge drains is not difficult for most experienced DIYers. However, if this is beyond your skill set, hire a professional plumber.

Options for Renters

When you rent an apartment or home, your landlord may prevent you from making major modifications to the home, like tapping water and drain lines and installing or moving electrical outlets, but this does not mean you cannot still have in-home laundry with a combination washer and dryer. All that is required are a few accessories added to the existing appliance to turn it into a portable washing machine on wheels. Any time you need to do a load of laundry, you simply roll the machine up to the kitchen sink, attach the quick connect hose attachment to the faucet, plug the all-in-one washer dryer into any 3-prong standard outlet, and you are ready to wash and dry your clothes.

Getting in-home laundry is not difficult, whether you own or rent your home and lack existing washer and dryer connections.

Building a Laundry Room for a Stackable Washer and Dryer

It is easy to build a laundry room in your home to accommodate a new stackable washer and dryer if you are handy with various tools and like undertaking do-it-yourself home improvement projects. The first step to building your new laundry room is obtaining the measurements of the washer and dryer, including their depth, length, and combined height, as well as the necessary clearance space required on the sides, back, and top of the stacked appliances. You do not have to worry about allowances for dryer vents, by selecting a ventless dryer.

After you have the measurements of the stackable washer and dryer, the next step is to determine where you want to install your new appliances. You can convert an existing closet or build a new enclosure. If you have an attached garage on your home that is climate controlled, you could build the laundry room in the garage.

Remember to Include Connections in Your Laundry Room Design

One essential step you do not want to overlook is the connections the washer and dryer require. You may want to consider these before selecting the location within your home to build your laundry room. The washer needs access to hot and cold water lines, a discharge drain line, and a 110 V three-prong electrical outlet. The dryer requires a special 220 V electrical outlet. It is highly recommended you obtain the services of a professional electrician to install new electrical outlets for your appliances, to ensure they satisfy current building codes.
