The Problem: Soaring Demands and Decreased Quality
Major Metropolitan areas such as Philadelphia, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Boston, Chicago, and New York have growing density levels. As density soars, quality decreases. Therefore, this has driven a hard-to-meet desire for quality apartments with superior amenities. Don’t be alarmed there is a simple solution; in-unit washing machines. Among your largest metropolitan markets, apartments that have the luxury of an in-unit washer and dryer demand higher rents. As a result, rents for units with washing machines are on average 110% of the rent of the total market. For example, Los Angeles renters pay an additional $325 dollars per month for their washing machines. While, in Philadelphia, rents are 20% higher, simply from adding a washer and dryer.
In-Unit Laundry with Lightning One
Lightning Clean One® is the first and only washing machine to be able to fully wash your clothes in under 10 minutes. The machine utilizes Lightning-Drive, a revolutionary, high torque, high spin-speed technology. Consequently, the machine is able to complete full loads in a fraction of the time of traditional machines.
Today, we are a highly personalized, on-demand society. However, before Lightning Clean, there was no machine on the market that completed laundry quickly and had a washer/dryer combo in one unit. This matters because 43 million renters in the US do not want to go to a laundromat to complete their laundry. In-unit laundry allows the renter to have privacy and control. Subsequently, this dramatically increases the value of a unit.
Laundry can be done quickly from start to finish. 10-minute wash. 20-minute dry. Gone are the days when each load took over an hour. This is the 21st Century and it’s time to have modern laundry solutions in our units.
Rent Increases With In-Unit Laundry
In-unit laundry machines increase the value of your units to your tenants. Needless to say, with Lightning One your leasing agent can always impress potential tenants on any laundry questions they may ask.
The Price Point Difference with in-unit laundry
Implementing a Lightning Clean machine is significantly more cost-effective than it is with traditional machines. It also boosts the asking price of each apartment. Check out our price calculations below to get a rough estimate of how much you can save by making the Lightning switch.
Decrease Installation Cost
Most old apartments aren’t set up to be able to support a traditional washer and dryer. That is no longer an issue when it comes to Lightning Clean Machines. The simple set-up takes hours instead of days and doesn’t require extensive construction. Cheaper, easier, and your next best choice. Our revolutionary Insta-pipe® hookup design allows owners to install Lighting One® in any house, condo, or apartment. This is regardless if the home is equipped with washing machine hookups or not. Check out our video and additional info on how the process happens.
