Swimming pools can become a huge liability with multi-family properties, but they can also be a buying aspect for a tenant. On average renters pay 4.7% more in rent for the luxury of a swimming pool. Property owners are held to a high standard of providing safety, and should take extra precautions insuring the safety of the tenants with amenities such as pools. Here are a few tips to secure your pool this upcoming summer:
- Put alarms on entry ways that access the pool
This includes doors and windows. Installing alarms will help keep track of people entering and leaving.
- Have a first aid kit available
Children are notorious for running and skinning knees. Keeping a first aid kit readily available will not only be convenient for smaller injuries, but it will also show tenants that the property management is prepared.
- Use the right fencing
Using a fours sided fence that is at least five feet high will help people from intruding on the property. Also using self latching or closing gates is always a good idea.
- Use the correct surveillance cameras
Choosing the right equipment and cameras for your property is very important. Check out our selection!
