A Question for Renters

We own a few smaller apartment buildings on the north side. They are clean, well maintained and most have a modern open floor plan for the kitchen / dining / living room space. They are not high-end with stainless steel and granite but the kitchens are decent. Most are one bedrooms so we have very few families with children. We will soon be updating quite a few bathrooms and are considering removing the tubs and replacing them with shower stalls...

We own a few smaller apartment buildings on the north side. They are clean, well maintained and most have a modern open floor plan for the kitchen / dining / living room space. They are not high-end with stainless steel and granite but the kitchens are decent. Most are one bedrooms so we have very few families with children. We will soon be updating quite a few bathrooms and are considering removing the tubs and replacing them with shower stalls with nice tile and frameless glass for the outer wall and door. Before we jump into this we would like to get an idea if renters who fit our target market these days would prefer this shower set-up, or would they miss the tub. Your insights would be appreciated..

  • Tubs in rentals gross me out no matter how well I clean. In four apartments with multi year leases, all with tubs, I never once took a bath.

    Only really important with dogs or kids. If your target market has neither, I wouldn't miss it.

    Just my two cents.

  • i love my baths and luckily my tub was re-porcelain'd right before i moved in so i know i'm the only one who has been there done that. i don't think i'd rent a place without a tub, but i have a dog and having a tub is just more convenient for me. even to just jump in and rinse/clean off without having to use the shower head is nice.

Barley and Brass Replaces FAME on Division Street

Wicker Wire: Earlier this month we reported that FAME located at 2015 W. Division Street, next to Takito Kitchen, had closed up shop quietly this Summer. It turns out another bar is opening in its place and, in all honesty, we were hoping for something a little more creative.
