In this article, we will be discussing sight unseen rentals. What does that mean? It means when an apartment gets rented by someone who hasn’t seen the apartment in person. A lot of problems can come from this because they haven’t seen the property. They’re going to base upon either pictures, videos, or 3D tours. They just haven’t had the opportunity to see it in person and this can raise problems and issues after they’ve gotten their keys and decided to move in since they didn’t see or understand a certain aspect.

 

Efforts that Green Ocean Do

 

We do our best to provide more than just pictures

People might just say the pictures look great, but the pictures could be from 5 to 7 years ago! Who knows the difference? We try to get an updated video of the property or a 3D tour. We try to make those for every single one of our properties to help you as a landlord run out of your properties faster and easier, and to help avoid problems that might occur in situations like this.

 

We set up a time with the person to do a real time video tour with us

Our staff members can go to the property to do a video call to walk through the property with them, explaining each room, show them on video and ask if they have any questions.

 

 

We provide waiver forms

The form mainly focuses on the point of the tenant assuming the liabilities and issues that might come with it as a result of not seeing the property in person. We’re going to make it as easy as possible for them to build that trust factor. It means a lot that someone can walk them through the property and answer any questions that they have.

 

In addition we’re going to make sure that you as a landlord are protected with it. We make sure that the tenant understands the liability that comes with it and that they’re happy with the tour.

 

If you or anyone else you know, is looking for a proactive property manager that can handle and take the extra step for both you and your prospective residents or just in any situation that you might just need a little bit more hand, holding a little bit more care, please think of Green Ocean Property Management, you get more than a property manager, you get peace of mind.
