How to build trust with your HousingAnywhere profile


Updated on Aug 09 • 1 minute read

First impressions count. Your HousingAnywhere profile is the first introduction your tenants have to you and your property. To stand out from the rest, ensure that all the property information is complete and up-to-date and that the pictures of the living spaces are clear and of high quality. This helps tenants make a fully informed decision.

In our experience, if your profile contains a lot of information, tenants are more likely to trust you and see that you're a reliable and genuine advertiser. As a result, they are more likely to book your property.

Advertisers with complete profiles get 5 times more messages than average.

Here’s what you can do to improve your profile:

  • Profile picture: Having your face in the profile picture goes a long way to establish trust and shows that you are part of the trusted HousingAnywhere community.

  • Your name: Your name must be your real name. It’s not possible to insert the name of a company. Only your first name is visible on your public profile to protect your privacy.

  • Response Time: The faster you respond to tenants, the more successful you will be. Tenants also associate trust with your response rate.

  • Verify your account: Verify your email, phone number and Facebook account. Check out our step-by-step guide to learn how.

  • Short description: Tell potential tenants about yourself. For how long have you been renting out properties? Where are you from? What are your hobbies/interests? Anything else you would like to say to your potential tenants? Your profile description helps tenants feel comfortable booking and paying online for their future home abroad.

  • Pictures of your property: This is crucial in making a good first impression. Add clear, bright photos of every room on the property to your listing.

  • Spoken language: Let tenants know your preferred language and any other language they can use to communicate with you. This helps potential tenants to contact you in the most effective way possible.
