4 Trends You Should Consider for Your Next Multifamily Investment

T oday’s renters are more dis- cerning than ever. Environmen- tally conscious Millennials, GenX- ers who need flexible space with room for multiple generations, and Baby Boomers tired of clutter all have specific needs in mind when seeking their next “home sweet home.” Here are a few suggestions for making the most of your next multifamily investment. by Michael Miller, CMO, 5arch 1. Open, Flexible Floor Plans to Accommodate the Needs of Today’s Families Even partial renovations to exist- ing multifamily properties can add major appeal, specifically ones that accommodate flexible spaces to gather and entertain. A kitchen with an island overlooking a family room and a dining room to the side can help everyone feel closer. Pocket doors and other movable partitions can instantly transform a space, creating partitions as needed. 2. Form, Function, and Accessibility That Blend with the Architecture Embrace what architects call “universal design” to make rent- al units easier to navigate. Wide hallways, handrails on stairs, solid wood floors with no saddles be- tween rooms, and–once again–open floor plans blend in with a property’s architecture while making it friendly to multigenerational families.

3. Green Construction Creates Healthier Spaces Avoid synthetic materials, toxic, fume-producing glues, plastics, and laminates wherever possible. Look into reclaimed wood and en- vironmentally-friendly insulation. In addition, large, south-facing windows that let in natural light are eco-friendly, while reducing heating and lighting costs. Choose no-VOC paints, recycled glass, formaldehyde-free cabinets, and bamboo floors. Lastly, adding smart thermostats, lighting, and appliances are affordable ways to make a rental more eco-friendly and appealing to buyers. 4. Municipal Public Use Facilities in Common Areas Help Investors Take Advantage of Tax Abatement Some cities and municipalities offer tax breaks for introducing multifamily homes into mixed-use commercial buildings or for certain property improvements in areas undergoing revitalization. Your investment may also qualify for tax abatement if you convert a common area into some- thing the whole community can enjoy, such as a performing arts center, youth center, or senior day care. Trends, or Time-tested Solutions? From an investor’s point of view, finding creative ways to implement

these solutions can result in higher rental prices without a substantial increase in building or reno costs. • 5arch (NMLS ID # 1039184) makes and acquires business purpose loans only and does not originate or acquire owner oc- cupied residential mortgage loans. 5arch does not provide tax, legal or investment advice.
