The Apartment Appeal By Autumn Leigh Chaulklin Apartment communities in San Antonio are going up faster than ant piles after a rainy day… and they are simply amazing. Long gone are the four white walls and a microwave. The new luxury communities are focused on providing a lifestyle of comfort and elegance. Starting with the interior features, we are finding more and more communities are going away from wall-to-wall carpet, and opting for wood-like plank flooring. This is a huge benefit to people that might have pets, and is also an advantage to those with allergies. Countertops are a sleek granite or quartz, and appliances are topof-the-line stainless steel. Additional appeal is created by the light, neutral grays that are used to accent the trim work in these homes. Hanging glass light fixtures are now offering a more modern or rustic appearance, depending on the community’s overall ambiance theme. Rental communities are now heavily focused on providing services that one will not find in a singlefamily home. Some of these services include package delivery, pet care, plant care, valet trash pick-up, and concierge services such as dry-cleaning and housekeeping. Luxury amenities are at your fingertips, such as resort-style swimming pools, indoor/outdoor fitness centers and yoga areas, game rooms with pool tables and shuffle boards, life-size chess games, relaxing hammocks, walking trails and more. Building a sense of community has become a priority, and properties are offering group fitness classes, lunch and learn events, sports-watching gatherings, game nights, cooking classes, wine tastings, and personal development meetings.

Management companies understand that important bonds are made and maintained, therefore, they wish to foster the deep meaning of “community” at their properties. Two luxuries offered by apartment community living are chiefly TIME and EXPERIENCE. Residents are saving time by not having to worry about the maintenance. Apartment living is truly care-free. Imagine not having to mow your yard, mulch your landscaping or manage plumbing issues that inevitably come up at the most inconvenient times. While apartment living is not exempt from maintenance issues, their service teams are available to solve those annoying problems. These properties are offering the gift of experience by providing the atmospheres for those much-needed human connections… or disconnections. Whether you need to relax in a quiet hammock and indulge in music, courtesy of the community WIFI, or fill that social connectivity need, these properties are offering it all. It's no wonder that an aging baby-boomer population is shifting from owning single-family homes, to pampering themselves with stress-free apartment living. On the other end of the spectrum, millennials are opting for the same types of luxuries, as their demanding schedules and variety of activities match perfectly with the lifestyle that apartment communities have to offer. ~ Autumn Leigh Chaulklin is a professional in the multifamily property management industry with 19 years of experience in leading top-performing teams.
