Renters’ needs have changed over the past 10 years, and even more so in 2020. People now want more outdoor living space, a working area, plus fitness centers. Community amenities have evolved in order to better support people’s lifestyles. Storage Café set out to identify where renters have the best chances to enjoy a premier renting experience.
