Creating Staycation Opportunities

Creating Staycation Opportunities

Summer is here, which means that your residents are looking for fun-filled seasonal activities to participate in! This is a perfect opportunity for you to encourage your renters to spend time at home over the next few months and have a relaxing summer staycation in your community. Here are a few ideas to get you started:


Community Pool
If your community has a swimming pool, this is a great place for you to begin coordinating warm-weather activities for your residents. If there is no pool in your community, consider partnering with a local pool to offer a membership discount to your residents.


-Host a pool party and cookout to kick off summer and give neighbors opportunity to get to know one another.

-Stock the poolhouse with cold water and sunscreen – your renters will thank you for this simple courtesy!

-Offer swim lessons. Residents will appreciate the fact that you value their safety at the pool.

-Now is a perfect time to begin planning a “Pet Pool Party” – invite all of the neighborhood dogs to the pool for a chance to do the dog paddle on the last pool day of the season!


Clubhouse or Open Area
The clubhouse or open area is the focal point of your community and provides a gathering place for residents, so be sure that it is always a welcoming environment!


-Keep the room temperature cool, so residents will have a nice place to relax and chill out after being outside on a scorching day.

-Offer plenty of comfortable seating to encourage friends and neighbors to gather.

-If your clubhouse has a fitness center, offer hand towels and refreshing lemon water to exercisers.


Outdoor Recreation
It’s summer, so many of your residents will want to spend as much time outside as possible. Renters will appreciate the outdoor amenities and green space that your community provides.


-If your property has space available, consider installing a volleyball net. Also, don’t forget to provide the volleyballs for your residents to use!

-If there are running or walking trails in your community or nearby, share location and mileage information with your community – your active residents will appreciate it!

-If you have a pet-friendly community, consider hosting a “Yappy Hour” (complete with pet treats and giveaways!) so that pets and their owners can get to know one another better. After all, if you are encouraging residents to staycation in your community, you want everyone to get along…including pets.




These are just a few ways that you can encourage residents to staycation in your community this summer. What types of opportunities and events do you create for your residents to encourage them to staycation?

Welcome to The Local Search Economy.  Google My Business (GMB) is upstaging your community website. This spells trouble for a few reasons:  You’ve invested (and continue to invest) time and money in your website. Users form first impressions based on your GMB profile, then decide whether to visit your website. You depend on your website to generate leads and leases.  So, what’s going on?  Things change rapidly in a digital-first world. Google introduced GMB in 2014 and sinc...
When a community’s ratings and reputation is struggling, it can be incredibly challenging to pull those ratings back from the brink, all while not having the team get discouraged along the way. And for those communities that are already doing well on that front, how are they proactive about getting resident feedback before that feedback turns into negative reviews? These are two of my favorite parts of my interview with Danielle Johnson, Vice President of Marketing and Training at Bridge Propert...
