In a survey of residents commissioned by Multifamily Executive the most valued feature in their building was…quietness.

Quietness isn’t often thought of as an amenity, and yet it’s what renters value most. On a scale from zero to 10 (10 being most important), multifamily residents rated quietness in their building as its most important factor, with an 8.73 score overall. This was a higher showing than location-based factors such as walkability, or in-unit features such as energy-efficient appliances.

The survey respondents also identified grocery stores as the most desired type of retail or entertainment to have in the neighborhood. The top keywords used in responses to open ended questions? Parking and pools.
