Grills And Patio Heaters Are Perfect 'Trims' for Community Space

As an entrepreneurial-minded multi-family property owner, you likely understand there’s a strong connection between the rent you can charge and the quality amenities you offer. Things like grills for apartments and a propane heater in a common area during cool weather make a quantifiable difference. Oddly, not every apartment owner or property management company places enough emphasis on these and other value-added benefits. But if you stop and think about adding a patio grill and propane heater to community spaces along the lines of automobile extras, the value is obvious.

Consider the Toyota Camry, which ranks among the most sold vehicles in recent years. The Toyota Camry LE base model reportedly starts at $26,220 MSRP. But a fully loaded Camry can top out around $36,370. That’s nearly a $7,000 difference based on what the car industry calls “trims.”

When commercial property owners add “trims” such as a patio grills and heaters to make outdoor gathering areas more comfortable, living spaces naturally become more valuable. But unlike automobile manufacturers that make a percentage on parts and labor, apartment owners and property management outfits can roll the investment into rents and HOA fees.

Why Residents Prefer Outdoor Heaters and Grills for Apartments

Providing an updated patio grill area with outdoor heaters allows residents to enjoy the communal space all year. This typically entails grilling family meals, mingling with neighbors, or hosting a celebration. This is the type of experience renters relish from a fully loaded multi-family community over one with just standard items.

In many respects, it’s a lot like owning a home and having a backyard BBQ. The difference from a tenant's perspective is enhanced quality of life without having to mow the lawn, make repairs, clear walkways, or clean out gutters.

The same holds true when commercial property owners invest in an outdoor heating system. State-of-the-art outdoor patio heaters warm objects in their throw radius and are not necessarily affected by cool breezes. That means residents can enjoy their outdoor BBQ experience well into the evening and during cold weather months.

Adding a quality patio grill and propane heater is like getting a Camry with voice-controlled Bluetooth instead of an AM/FM radio with knobs. Everyday people understand that you get what you pay for. Multi-family property owners can maximize their rental and real estate values by turning standard facilities into full-loaded ones.
