Once you begin to invest in rental properties, the goal is to find and secure tenants. A rental property owner must be smart when searching for tenants, marketing a property successfully to find quality tenants for every investment. For many landlords, free online services like CraigsList and Zillow are utilized to find potential tenants. The services are free and can reach a broad range of areas, helping you to find a quality tenant. The downside to such listings is that your phone number is requested to submit a rental vacancy. It is not wise or conducive to business to supply your personal telephone number, so what options do you have?
Separating Business from Personal
If you have provided your personal mobile number for a vacancy listing, you will soon find that your device is blowing up with text messages and phone calls about the property. This can get annoying and confusing as you may not be sure if the call coming in is one from a potential tenant or personal needs. What you need is a way to manage your rental properties with ease, separating business from personal use.
An option to streamline your communications with potential tenants is to use VerticalRent Hub. This service will separate your personal mobile number from your landlord number, helping you to receive information on the same device but be able to tell the difference between business and personal needs. Instead of posting your personal telephone number for the world to see, you can use your separate VerticalRent Hub number for vacancy listing advertisements and still be contacted via your mobile device by interested renters.
You can also use this number for your business cards, lease agreements and more. Easily use your Hub line to respond to SMS texts when you receive one from an interested tenant for a property or to communicate with existing tenants in other properties. You can also log in to a platform to be able to answer texts via a computer keyboard when at your desk.
The simplicity of the Hub allows landlords to easily communicate with tenants for every aspect within the rental property industry. Having a separate phone line means you can still use your mobile device for business needs but streamline your day to easily get back to clients or handle personal needs.
