Apartment complex managers and homeowners association (HOA) leadership know attracting families to their communities is vital. Amenities like play spaces are a key way to accomplish that. Help increase your property’s appeal by partnering with Playworx to create innovative play spaces that deliver family fun.
The benefits of adding a playground to your HOA or apartment complex go beyond simple fun.
Investing in a playground can boost property values for everyone in your community. Your organization may even command higher HOA fees or rent with your play space.
Research from the National Recreation and Park Association demonstrates families are willing to pay up to 20% more for homes near a park. The value may be even higher for multifamily properties, where residents often don’t have a backyard. Being close to the playground gives them quick access to an amenity they can’t place on their property.
Families enhance a community’s stability, making appealing to them crucial. The many housing options available to them mean your complex or HOA must find a way to set itself apart from others. Playgrounds are ideal for gaining a competitive edge — the more amenities your property offers, the more families you’ll attract.
Tight-knit communities offer many benefits for their residents, including better security and a sense of belonging. Residents establish shared accountability in communities where people know and interact with their neighbors. The result is lower crime as people watch out for and respect each other. Those living in communities with strong bonds also often have better emotional, physical and mental health. They feel connected to their fellow residents and are likelier to remain at the property.
Playgrounds are ideal for helping build this rapport because they serve as gathering places for families to meet and socialize with their neighbors. When you add amenities like seating or grills to your property, you encourage that interaction.
Physical activity is great for healthier living. It releases endorphins that improve mood and helps kids develop the social, body and problem-solving skills they need. Plus, research has linked outdoor play to reduced childhood obesity, lower myopia risk and better behavior.
By adding a playground to your property, you promote this valuable activity that improves everyone’s quality of life.
