I'd never use a lockbox here in the UK. A person only needs to move in and forge a tenancy agreement, and I would have a devil of a job to get them out.

Hi RLAP! Great video. I would prefer having a lock that I could unlock from my PC and then lock again after the showing. In that way the prospect never has access to the key. What are your thoughts?

I would love a video on how to communicate with renters. Is it appropriate to text message them, and if so how often?

Nowadays you have to be crazy to allow these total strangers and millenials to have your keys to the house. Very bad idea. The generation today cares absolutely nothing about you or your property.

Rently.com can help!

Since we only have one rental...Its not a big hassle to do private showings. We prefer to get face time with the potential tenant, definitely can get a better "feel" for people this way. Also, we pack the viewings into one day,

Can you show two tenants at the same time?

Feel like lock box should be used only when things are too busy and times dont match up for either party. But if you are able to go, you should it at least someone there.

Love the idea but It should be your secondary way not first so you can meet them.

I have 7 rental units
4 are are houses with basement apts.
I had all units key'd the same, and basements key'd the same. I only have to carry two keys, if they lose keys I charge $20 and always have copies available.
Some say change locks when tenants move, but in 10 years never had a problem. The only ppl who know is me, you, and my locksmith

Don't think I would rent to, or from someone that I didn't personally meet. Also surprised you didn't mention scheduling several viewings on the same day.

We've started to use electronic locks rather than lockboxes, with regular code changes. To show we require info + copy of driver's license, trying to get it all automated.
Seb Berraz
why did you mention to be careful about the federal rules towards the end for the in person showing?
Decatur GA
I use lock boxes,I make people send me a picture of their driver license & a picture of their car tag before I give the code..
Alternative Property Management
I love the idea of eliminating the time it takes to drive out and show properties, however, what makes it so I can't get myself to do it any other way is because I feel that meeting them and talking with them in person tells me much more than even a credit check does. There are certain mannerisms, comments, hygiene, etc. that many times have told me I don't want to rent to them that I would have never picked up on just through a credit check, for example.

I'm not saying it can't be done, that's just where I'm at with the concept in my mind.

Thank you for your excellent content

I would suggest using electronic locks on your front doors and not worrying about keys period. I do not issue keys, I setup codes. I have never had an issue in 8 years.

Don't go door to door collecting rent. Use an automatic online payment method. Usually, the cost associated with accepting online payments is less than the time and money spent going door to door. Good tenants will thank you for automatic payment options and rent collection will be much easier.
