Does Your Building's Lobby Make a Great First Impression?

Think about it: your lobby is your building’s chance to make a great first impression on a prospective resident. Just as you might arrive at an initial judgment about a person within seconds, so it goes with the common area of any residential property. So what impression do you want to impart? Stylish and modern? Classic and grand? Fun and upbeat? As a member of the board you have the ability to convey all of this – and more.

On the flip side, it can dangerously convey the opposite – a shabby lobby with outworn features suggests a property lacking in maintenance and enthusiasm when it comes to service.

As a board member, you have the opportunity to influence the aesthetics of your lobby, and the image it conveys of your community.
