Apartment investors are always looking for ways to add value to their units. Updating interiors, improving amenities, and adding services are just some of the options multifamily operators use to increase the NOI. Daniel Farber of HLC Equity has identified a unique value-add strategy that considers the flexibility demands of today’s renters and their need for additional services.
Daniel is the CEO of HLC Equity, a multigenerational real estate company that has been in business for 70 years. He shares that furnished apartments are ideal for renters who are new to an area and expecting a short term stay. Think college graduate students, international students, traveling nurses, etc. They also work great for someone who doesn’t want to spend thousands of dollars on furniture. However, what Farber has identified goes beyond offering furnished rentals to offer what they call, serviced apartments.
