Future Challenges and Opportunities in the Ever-Shifting Apartment World

Posted by: Entrata | Category: Technology

If there is one constant in the apartment world, it’s that renter preferences and expectations continually evolve. But it has never happened at such an accelerated pace as in the current climate.

Those preferences and expectations seem to shift as quickly as technological advancements, which is fitting considering many of those renter cravings and demands center around tech. That includes the way prospects search for homes and the features they expect within them.

Tech giants such as Amazon and Google are reshaping the apartment living experience with various smart-home features.

Base Camp Keynote: The Iron Cowboy

Posted by: Entrata | Category: Base Camp,Newsletters
