The amount of work that goes into managing a property as a landlord or developer can feel never-ending. It may therefore be tempting to leave some responsibilities to tenants, such as the Wi-Fi connection. But there is the option to provide managed internet in new builds, and it can bring numerous benefits.
Here, we explore a few of them.
If there is Wi-Fi available as soon as the tenant moves in, then they will be instantly satisfied. In fact, it could be the reason they choose the new build in the first place. Developers can offer this too, and list ‘managed Wi-Fi’ on their advertisements as a way to add value to landlords.
Being connected is crucial for many – whether they are businesses, remote-working professionals, students who don’t want to resort to the university library, or people who simply can’t be without access. Managed Wi-Fi saves them the time and hassle of setting it up themselves, making a property even more appealing. You’ll need to ensure that the internet is high-speed and has guaranteed bandwidth, as tenants will expect quality and reliable Wi-Fi from a new build.
By adding value to your offering, you can provide a much better service to tenants, alongside creating an extra long-term revenue stream. You can charge for managed internet in new builds, incorporating this into your monthly rentals or annual service charges.
Many of your residents will require the internet immediately, and will therefore be happy to pay for the convenience. With this provided, landlords have the competitive advantage of being able to offer a fully managed service, leading to better yields and retention.
Thanks to a managed service, you can make new tenants aware that they won’t have to contact you to get the internet installed. In addition, you’ll know exactly where the wires are, instead of BT putting multiple ones in.
The connection can be set up earlier, too, at a much more convenient time for you. There will also be a lot less work required in the long run, and fewer conversations needed. These benefits make managing a new build’s internet connection much easier, giving you more time to focus on other, more critical tasks.
