Selecting a Multifamily Housing Contractor In Florida

Owners and managers of Multifamily housing in Southeastern U.S. are looking for ingenious ways to stay competitive. They are choosing modern decor, high tech amenities, and other ways to give their property more curb appeal.

Recent research shows those looking for a new apartment want energy efficiency. Out of the 1,000 people surveyed, over 60 percent said a critical factor in making the decision about renting an apartment was environmental friendliness

Luckily, there are quite a few options available to make your multifamily housing greener and more appealing to tenants.

Tubular skylights

Skylights are a great way to add natural lighting to your units, especially bathrooms and kitchens. While they may not be very big, they allow sunlight to be carried for over 20 feet. It, also brightens rooms so electricity is reduced.

Energy efficient windows 

Energy efficient windows are a great way to attract tenants. They can reduce the amount of heat coming in and cold air going out. Keeping cooling cost down year round.

Storage Area

Curb appeal is vital, allowing tenants to leave items in the common areas can easily get out of control and become an eyesore.  Building a storage area not only leaves your property nice and tidy, it is also an added amenity for tenants.

Fresh Coat of Paint

Updating your property with a fresh coat of paint not only makes a good first impression with guests and prospective tenants, it also improves the feel of the community. Be aware of wood rot or any damage around the roof and garages, this can make the property seem worn and dated.


If you’ve ever had to handle a noise complaint, you know the value of soundproofing. Retrofitting ceilings and walls with vinyl sound barriers and thicker flooring can easily fix the problem and add to the value of the property.

Up Dated Common Areas

This is where small changes can create a big impact. Ensuring the pool area is kept up (the decks are in good condition and there aren’t any stains), updating the landscaping and adding a BBQ pit or dog park, all can make a big difference without breaking the budget.

A few simple upgrades and renovations will not only increase the market value of your property, it will also keep your tenants and guests happy and loyal.
