Case Study: Selling quality to American Tenants

Catching the big tenant account

The following observations may help Landlords who are renovating their older apartments to attract the high net worth  Tenants:

Examples of pre-planning renovation works are:

  • Plumbing for ice-maker fridge planned ahead.    The installation of  concealed piping to provide water for the ice-dispenser refrigerator (2-door, one vertical half being the freezer). Great Eastern Mansions does not have an ice-dispensing fridge.
  • An electric cooker hob at Nassim Woods means that the tenant will not run out of gas during cooking or be required to retain an extra cylinder.  Some condos use piped (city) gas and this may not be a problem.   This may not be economical for many expat tenants.
  • Dual wash basins in the master bedroom's bathroom.
  • Wooden door covers and cabinets under the wash basin. Most developers usually don't provide any shelving and doors under wash basins.
  • Hair dryer with electric points for the shaver in master bedroom's bathroom.
  • Quality holders for shampoos along walls and beautiful bathroom lights and mirrors.
  • Private lift similar to the concept in Costa Rhu Condos. Many expat husbands travel frequently and a private lift with access only to one unit is a great security measure.
  • Pastel coloured quality ceramic tiles in the kitchen with no fanciful black floral designs.  Not the cheap looking homogeneous or ordinary ceramic tiles.  
  • Pastel or wood-coloured kitchen cabinets.  Great Eastern Mansions have bluish green striped cabinets and this is not the colour Caucasians prefer although your interior designer may deem it unique and cool.
  • Bigger balconies with a slight curve, twice the area of Great Eastern Mansions but nowhere as large as Costa Rhu's or Pebble Bay's.
  • Further details at: Research report on Nassim Woods.
