How do I give a tour?
When potential renters click on your listing, they'll be able to view a phone number where they can call you or they can email you directly through our contact form.
When a potential renter reaches out, try to understand that while they may press for an in-person tour, it just might not be possible at the moment. Be prepared with alternative tour ideas by offering sharing a video or a live online tour!
The fastest way to give a tour of your property is to share a video of your vacancy. Most smart devices such as phones and tablets have high quality cameras that can shoot video. Platforms like YouTube, Vimeo, and Facebook allows you to share a video link of your property without any hassle.
