Safely Finance partners with Latchel to simplify renter payments


Rental properties use amenities to attract and keep great tenants. Conveniences like 24-hour gym access, barbecues, fire pits, lounges, and laundry services stand out to prospective renters. In fact, 87% of multifamily renters claim amenities influence their decision to rent an apartment and 94% say they would pay more in rent for on-site perks according to the 2021 Multifamily Amenity Guide from 2ndKitchen.

But what about being able to enjoy on-site amenities apart from your apartment while also living your best life at home? Zapier reports that 1 in 3 Americans have a side hustle. A little extra money goes a long way for quality of living. That’s why at Safely Finance we like to say the ultimate amenity is more cash in your pocket.

We’re proud to announce that Safely Finance is partnering with Latchel to simplify renter payments and live up to our idea of providing the most impactful amenity.
