When the COVID-19 pandemic began over a year ago, and people began to quarantine and shelter in place, they felt isolated and alone. Even apartment dwellers, whose neighbors were just on the other side of a wall, felt lonely and separated as they remained in their apartments. Since restrictions have lifted, businesses have reopened, and folks have gone back to their everyday lives, the first thing they have attempted to rebuild is personal connections. Connections with family, friends, coworkers, neighbors, and their apartment communities. Here are three ways to build lasting relationships with your residents.
Create a Community Social Media Page
Even when people are out and about, one of the most efficient ways to reach them is through social media. Create a special page or group exclusively for residents of your property and then use it to share information about goings-on at your property and in the greater community. You can also encourage residents to do the same, posting about events they are attending or new restaurants they have tried out. Once you’ve established an online community space, residents will be more likely to engage with one another in person.
One of the best ways to add value and build connections for your residents is by hosting events on your property. More relaxed restrictions in most parts of the country mean that you can host indoor events such as special fitness classes, game nights, craft nights, or other fun activities that your residents would otherwise need to leave the property and pay for to enjoy. And the benefits for you and your residents are numerous: Residents will have the chance to socialize with their neighbors, and they will also remember the fun perks they’ve received when it comes time for them to renew their leases.

Talk to Them!
In any apartment community, residents want to feel like their needs are being met. The best and easiest way to ensure this is to make them part of the conversation. Encourage residents to share their thoughts and ideas on how your property and their experience can be improved, and then take steps to show them that you are listening. Two-way communication on issues important to your tenants will significantly strengthen the connection between residents and their community.
