The Most Important Apartment Amenities

When you’re searching for a new apartment for rent, what amenities do you look for? Move For Free asked our Facebook community for its thoughts, and the answers weren’t as flashy as you may have expected. In fact, functionality far outweighed luxury.

  • Washer/dryer connections: 55%
  • Security gates/security on premises: 18%
  • Cable TV options: 9%
  • Fitness center: 9%
  • Pool: 9%

These numbers obviously aren’t scientific, so keep that in mind. But it is interesting to see practical items like washer/dryer connections are more important than a great pool or a theater room, which received zero votes.

So keep that in mind, apartment communities!
