Hot Girl Summer: A Comprehensive List of Warm Weather Activities for Your Residents

Summer is in full swing, which means you can plan some fun activities for your residents. And, since it's warm out, you can host a lot of your events outside, which is more conducive to social distancing. Also, it's just nice to be in fresh air, instead of hunched in front of our computers like we are most of the year. (If I want to be staring at a screen in the middle of the summer, I can be checking Instagram while sitting on a lounge chair, thankyouverymuch.)


You can do a mix of different ideas. Or have some events just for kids. Or some for just adults. Any way to get your residents having fun.

Need suggestions for summer resident events? Don't worry, I've got you covered. Below is a list of activities you can try out at your apartment communities. Enjoy!

Warm Weather Resident Activity Suggestions

  • Host a picnic
  • Have a barbeque
  • Have a potluck, where renters can bring their favorite dishes
  • Hire local food trucks (I promise not all my ideas are food related)
  • Set up a make-your-own-sundae bar (OK, yes, that's another food one, but who can say no to rainbow sprinkles?)
  • Have a pool party with a DJ

When we lease an apartment, we aren't just leasing them an apartment, but rather a view of their life in that apartment. We show them what it will be like honing their skill...
I'm a big believer that one of the main reasons we struggle with turnover so much in our industry is the process of renting itself. We tend to not act like we are renting a home, but just a temporary one-year hiatus until they find their next temporary one-year hiatus. And this mentality is built into the lease itself. Right from the start, there is an expiration date on their lease, that puts the requirement on the resident to actively think of whether they want to stay or find something els...
My very lovely fiancee and were having an oh-so exciting talk about the mail we got a few days back when something out of the ordinary came up. She said that she received something in the mail from Publisher's Clearinghouse, cleverly disguised so she opened it up instead of immediately chunking it. But what really shocked her was that the letter was personally signed. She even took the time to examine it in order to see the pen indentation on the page. She was so amazed that she made a point of ...
