HOW COVID WILL AFFECT YOUR RESIDENTS
These are uncertain times for sure. But as we spend more time in this world of social distancing, we're starting to see how the lives or our residents will be changed. Here are a few takeaways we're noticing and why Envoy is an essential amenity.
TOP 3 EFFECTS ON YOUR RESIDENTS
Almost everyone is working from home (WFH) and this will continue post COVID-19. Some companies are already giving up office space. What this will mean for your residents is they will not have to commute therefore reducing the need for a daily commuter vehicle.
With rising unemployment and stock market tanking, everyone is going to be reducing costs. The personally-owned vehicle is the 2nd highest cost of living so it will be top of the list for the chopping block.
As we have watched this virus spread across the globe, we have realized how connected we all are and how our actions affect other people across the world. And, as our favorite restaurants and entertainment are closed, we're reconnecting with the outdoors. All of this reminds us that we need to clean up our environment for the health of everyone.
WHY ENVOY IS ESSENTIAL
Transportation is an essential need. In a recent survey, we learned 65% of Envoy drivers don't own a car. And with residents ditching their commuting vehicles, an apartment that provides a car when they need one will be hard to give up.
Envoy is a low-to-no cost amenity that saves the resident money and provides the property a real attraction that is essential to a resident's needs. Properties can provide mobility at little to no cost. And possibly generate revenue.
Coronavirus has deterred people from using forms of transport that are open to the public (Metro, Uber, Bird). Envoy is exclusively for your residents who take pride and ownership in the vehicle, being a good neighbor by wiping down the car before and after (like gym equipment). Plus, Envoy EVs reduce air pollution and congestion. Drive clean, breathe easy.
