What if I have vacancies that need to be filled?

April 1, 2020

You may be experiencing more vacancies than usual during this time. Don’t panic! There are still ways to get people into your rental without breaking social distancing rules.

  1. Schedule virtual tours. Upload a tour of your rental on YouTube or FaceTime potential tenants and do a live walk-through with them.

  2. Use online screening and applications. Let tenants submit their application online and complete a screening to speed up the process.

  3. Sign documents digitally. If you use a tool that can create a lease with an option to e-sign, you’ll be able to do everything you need without an actual pen and paper.

  4. Set up online payments to collect move-in fees and rent. For more information about switching to online payments, this article can help.
