I use an automated system and they canít even request a viewing without uploading an ID. Among other things. --24.152.xxx.xx

Thatís because nobody wants to talk to you. The ones who want to talk to you want to plead their case as to why you need to feel sorry for them and let them move in. Get more automated To handle the pre-screening questions right ahead of time. Before they can even request a viewing. --24.152.xxx.xx

I donít mean that they donít want to talk to you in a rude way. They want easy and lazy. They want two or three clicks and a scheduled showing. Not a request through zillow, then an email saying to call a number. Then calling a number to talk to a guy, and so on. --24.152.xxx.xx

Thanks for the good reply.

So....what automation should I be looking to do. I am not awful at it, but certainly not the most technologically adept. --74.105.xxx.xxx

Frank,

Zillow recently added a button to click for a showing. Looky Lous just click it with no intention of renting. VERY annoying.

We copy/paste our standard reply about completed OUR application before ahowing.

Reminder: We have not shown a vacant home over the last 1,000 leases. App, screen, THEN lockbox. Only one or two get the code.

In most markets SHOWING an be a waste of time.

Our as has tons of photos and a video walk thru so they het a good idea of the home.

Gotta love spell-check!

NE said what I have been saying for years - they don't want to talk to a "landlord". They want to shop by tapping their phone.

If you are nervous about theft, etc when giving the lockbox code to a stranger I always go back in my mind to all those showings where I was alone in a house with someone we later discovered were violent criminals IF they filled out an app.

Plus all the showings to deadbeats who were obviously not approve-able.

Consider giving a neighbor $10 each time to unlock and relock the house for you. I would only be sending 1 or 2 showings per vacancy.

When Son20,000 was moving and looking for an apt he looked and applied online. If it was not online he did not see it.

When they submit an application I get a photo ID, 2 months bank statements, 2 pay periodís information and if self employed 2 years tax returns.

I had one lady supported by her sugar daddy who thought my credit requirements were too invasive. Tough! --99.23.xxx.x

I have not - not until the full application.

However, I think it is a smart idea going forward - to get it with the pre-qualification form before a showing.

When I was doing lock box showings due to COVID, I would get pics of the leads photo ID. I didn't run into an issue - --24.101.xxx.xxx
