We NEVER show properties anymore. Never. People call from an ad and get an address with a description of the property off the voice mail. They can then choose to drive out to the property, peek in the windows and if they’d like, fill out an application (they’re tacked to the front of the house near the big window that has a flyer further describing the property and terms of the deal. If they like what they see, they fill out and fax in their app. If I like what I see on their app, I approve them and give them the combo to the lock box. That way, they can check out the insides themselves (but the bad dudes can’t). Once I hear back that “it’s a go,” we do the paperwork and put it to bed.
It’s been a long time since I’ve been stood up, and on any given Sunday, that fax machine starts spitting out the apps. Bingo, Bango, Bongo . . . described in my lease option course, Targeting the Tired Landlord . . . available right here.
