Here’s their order of importance for amenities:
3. fitness center
4. secured access
Some interesting facts that affect related sectors include:
1. apartments typically receive 100 packages per week
2. 72% of renters want a secure delivery area
3. 87% are not willing to pay for a secure locker
And, one more fun fact: 33% of renters own a pet
