Using professional showing companies is common practice when listing a home for sale, but you don’t see it nearly as often when homes are listed for rent.
These showing companies provide a few benefits. Professionals answer the phones when someone wants to set up a showing, and they answer the phones from 8am to 8pm 7 days a week. When someone calls in, they know it’s for a showing and the process is top notch. Showings can also be set up online 24/7. No calls go unanswered, and no showing requests made online go unattended. It’s completely worth paying for these services.
These companies also provide streamlined feedback systems in which we can set up custom surveys for each property. If a potential tenant decides a property isn’t for them, we want to know why. By using a company like this we can find out if it’s something we can’t control such as the floorplan, or something we can control such as the home not really showing well (tenants leaving clothes on the floor or dishes on the counter).
Feedback is important whether you’re selling a home or renting it out. Without it many questions go unanswered and opportunities are missed.
