Demand Increases for Wellness and Green Features in Condos, Apartments and Townhouses

 

In today’s wellness-driven culture, it can be no surprise that Millennials and Gen Y buyers and
renters expect more from their housing design features. The idea of home no longer begins at
the front door, it encompasses common spaces and a community lifestyle. Builders looking to
appeal to a modern market must build from the outside in, incorporating wellness and green
features on a larger, more marketable scale.

Must-have features for today’s housing include:

Fitness and Yoga Studios

Healthy lifestyles are the cultural norm, but in a fast-paced world, the need for convenience is
essential in maintaining a wellness regimen. On-site fitness centers provide members with a
space to focus on personal fitness, and at the same time, build relationships within their
housing community. Walkability is an environmentally friendly feature too, and onsite
amenities like gyms and yoga studios accommodate the green lifestyle buyers and renters seek.

Common Spaces that Encourage Socializing

Millennials are in the prime of life for settling down and beginning families of their own. This
lifestyle dynamic means that the convenience of onsite playgrounds, pools, outdoor seating
areas, lounges, internet cafes, and dog parks are quickly becoming must-have amenities. A
higher quality of life is the ultimate wellness feature homebuyers and renters look to buy into.

Low-Flow Water-Saving Appliances

Energy-efficient and water-saving appliances appeal to both the environmentally conscious and
budget-minded buyer. Low-flow fixtures and appliances do more than save on monthly water
bills, they keep the appliances lasting longer, cut down on water waste, and use less energy in
replenishing hot water. A survey conducted by J Turner Research said those surveyed ranked
energy efficient appliances as the highest valued feature in their apartment.

In short, young buyers and renters aren’t merely calculating square feet into their housing
value, they’re investing in a total-value system where wellness and green features hold
increasing worth. To stay competitive in the housing market, builders must design with wellness
features and resource-saving appliances as a top priority in their housing concepts.
