Each of my properties are featured on my website with interior photos and floor plans. My husband, a reformed framing contractor does my floor plans on a computer program named HomePlanPro. These floor plans have GREATLY increased my web marketing effectiveness and property leasing.
With 30+ photos and floor plans for each property, I request that interested parties PREview properties online, that they they download my application, complete one for each adult applicant and fax/scan email them to my office. I'll then PREview their application and set up a viewing of the property. Although my properties appear vacant on my website, they are actually rented and I don't take "unknown" persons into my residents' homes without an application....
I started showing property to PREscheduled appointments at 8:30A on Friday * all prospects flew/drove into the the area as they are moving to attend/work at UVa Medical Center * out of 5 PREscreened applicants, 4 are renting a home they saw with me.
How are you PRE-preparing and PRE-screening this rental season?
