If you ask most tenants who live in Houston Texas Rental Property, they will tell you that they prefer to live in units which have a washer and dryer, or laundry room on site.
There’s no doubt that having a laundry room on site will help with keeping your units occupied longer and increase its value, but before you invest money into building a laundry room on site make sure you ask these questions.
Question #1 – Will My Tenants Actually Use This Laundry Facility?
The very first thing you should do before building a laundry room on site at your four-plex, or multi-family unit, is to speak with each of your tenants personally and find out if they would be open to using a laundry room if there was one on site.
You should also ask your tenants where they do their laundry now, and how much they are paying per load, so you have a better idea of what local laundromats are charging in the area.
Question #2 – How Many Washers and Dryers Will I Need?
To avoid overspending on washers, dryers, and other hardware, you should consider starting small and maybe buying two washers and dryers first.
Also another thing you can do to make adding more washers and dryers in the future easy is to add additional outlets and plumbing to your laundry room when it’s under construction.
Question #3 – What Will Your Laundry Room Hours Be?
As with any laundromat in Houston Texas Rental Property it’s important to have set hours for the laundry room in your Houston Texas Rental Property that way people know when they can use it. This will help to keep noise at a minimum in the evening and insure that all tenants respect the laundry facility.
