How to transform your property portfolio into cost-effective digital housing

digital housingThe rise of the digital age means that more of us than ever are beginning to integrate smart technology into our homes to make our lives safer and easier.

This is putting pressure on landlords and housing associations in the UK rental market to stay up to date with the latest trends so they can reduce vacancy rates and capture quality housing tenants.

As well as tenants beginning to demand even more for their money, it has also been found that demand for private rentals and rentals through housing associations schemes has risen.

How are tenant demands changing?

Landlords and property management businesses are now expected to provide the clearest, cleanest tenant experience possible. This includes increasing ease of access to services such as property maintenance, rental payment records and community engagement through the development of innovative online platforms.

Furthermore, those who support vulnerable people through housing solutions are being called upon to integrate new technologies that can assist an ageing population, as well as those with disabilities and mobility issues so that potential health deterioration can be monitored and treated faster where required.

What can you do to stay up to date with the latest digital housing trends?

There are now more than 27 million households in the UK.

21% of households are privately rented and 4.3 million households are social tenants.

If you have properties in these markets, then it is your prerogative to consider how future digital housing trends will be affecting your finances or organisation.

Being prepared for changes in tenant demand and the other topics that will be highlighted in our Digital Housing Conference will assist you greatly in this.

Here are just a few of the things that you can think about to improve your property portfolio and prepare for a more digitised future:

  • Learn what it takes to develop and implement a successful digital strategy by hearing directly from leading figures within the sector
  • Discover the power of data sharing and data analytics as a means of transforming how you operate and engage with your customers
  • Develop your understanding of how you can meet your organisations financial priorities through innovative, digitally enhanced working practices
  • Compare and contrast housing association digital strategies and decide which is the best for your organisation
  • Understand how digital tools can be used to simplify the delivery of housing services
  • Be able to adopt new methods of asset management and maintenance of buildings
  • Network with other UK organisations and compare digital housing strategies

The more informed you and your housing team are, the more prepared you will be to tackle changing service expectations from tenants.
