VIRTUAL HOME VISIT (by GKARL [PA]) Posted on: Nov 21, 2020 3:59 PM
Message:

I just spoke with another landlord who told me he did a virtual home visit on a tenant. Basically he started meeting with applicants via zoom and at the end of the zoom call requested a virtual tour of their home. He said it was effective in avoiding one bad situation. I think this is something I'm going to try. This also would be effective in the event that the tenant is moving from out of the area where it's physically difficult to actually go conduct a visit. I just think this is a good idea and I thought I'd pass along to see what you guys thought. --172.58.xxx.xxx

I think this is a good idea to see THEIR home. When they're moving into my places, I want the leaseholders physical eyeballs on my physical house.

Why??

Because I've done a few sight unseen lease signings and soon it's: too small, not what I thought it'd be, furniture doesn't fit, I don't like the neighborhood. Blah blah blah.

I don't care what "touchless" new normal nonsense spin we try to put on things, I want their eyes on the rooms and their feet inside the property. --70.44.xxx.xx

No in person visit is an automatic thanks but no thanks. I will let the property stay vacant. It has NEVER worked out well. --99.23.xxx.x

Well, better than nothing - maybe. But, they can "stage" what you are able to see, and you can't smell anything. --70.160.xxx.xxx

DJ, it sounded as if they had no pre-warning so there was no opportunity to stage anything. He said he discovered that one applicant had cats when their application indicated no animals. He saw a litter box via the virtual tour. You're right however you can't use your sense of smell. --209.122.xx.xxx

That doesn't sound like a bad idea but what if they are not at there own home but someone else's home. How would you know? --73.120.xx.xxx
