Keeping the process online on HousingAnywhere enables you to save time on your rentals. Potential tenants will pay online without the need for in-person viewings.
You can see a complete listing overview and use filters to navigate your bookings and tenants quickly. And real-time messaging allows both parties to view new messages without refreshing the page. With the Quick Replies function, you can even pre-save your answers so that you don't have to type it all out each time!
Your potential tenants can also send you documents (like IDs and contracts) through the attachment feature. So there's no need to exchange email addresses or depend on postal services.
HousingAnywhere measures your response time and response rate. These are an important part of the booking process as they show potential tenants that you will respond to their messages. They demonstrate how well you communicate.
A high response rate and a low response time make your profile look more trustworthy. And trustworthy profiles generate more bookings! Plus, quality listings from responsive advertisers rank higher in the search results.
Finally, we use special software to detect fraudulent behaviours in the chat. So keeping all communication on HousingAnywhere ensures protection for both parties.
For extra security, the phone numbers and email addresses disappear from the chat if the booking hasn't been completed.
