48 hour safeguard with HousingAnywhere

One aspect of HousingAnywhere that brought immense peace of mind to Silvia was the platform's 48-hour safeguard policy. Under this policy, HousingAnywhere ensures that property owners receive the first month's rent only 48 hours after the tenant has successfully moved-in. By having the payment routed through the platform, Silvia eliminates any concerns about the reliability and timeliness of rent payments. She feels at ease knowing that the tenant has already booked her property through HousingAnywhere, showing they're committed and will follow through with the rental agreement. Having this safeguard prevents payment delays or non-payment, allowing her to focus on other aspects of managing her property.

..I actually prefer that the payment goes through you (HousingAnywhere). The fact that they (tenants) pay while booking is a proof that the tenant is interested. Your payment system creates more trust between the property owner and tenants.

Streamlined rental management: Embracing Efficiency

For years, Silvia relied on traditional methods like posting notices on university bulletin boards and posting ads in newspapers. Everything changed when she discovered HousingAnywhere in 2019. With our platform, her rental process became remarkably organized, alleviating the hassle of managing multiple channels. The intuitive interface and efficient problem-solving capabilities set HousingAnywhere apart from classifieds, allowing Silvia to focus on providing exceptional service to her tenants.

Tenant management made easy: Overcoming challenges

Silvia had prior experience with various marketplaces, but found that their services fell short of her expectations. She felt that she did not get the level of support she wanted from other rental platforms . HousingAnywhere’s comprehensive tenant management tools and support team empowered Silvia to address and resolve tenancy-related issues promptly and successfully.

The tenants I find on HousingAnywhere are much better and it's easier to handle the situations and problems with them. You (HousingAnywhere) have always been there to help me.

A sense of security: Building trust and confidence

Security is a top priority for both property owners and tenants. Silvia emphasized the importance of conducting transactions within the platform to mitigate risks associated with unverified external contacts. By utilizing HousingAnywhere's secure ecosystem, both Silvia and her tenants establish a level of trust with each other and know that their transactions are protected. .

…lately there are a lot of scams in the market, with HousingAnywhere’s rental platform both tenants and landlords have more security.

Empowering Selectivity: Finding the perfect tenants

With HousingAnywhere's communication tools at her disposal, Silvia is now more selective when choosing tenants. The platform's advanced features enable her to establish meaningful connections and thoroughly assess potential renters. By setting clear expectations and facilitating transparent communication, HousingAnywhere empowers property owners to attract and select the ideal tenants, ultimately fostering a harmonious landlord-tenant relationship.

I have so many tenants reaching out to me that now I can be more selective about who stays in my apartment. This was not the case earlier.

Eliminating property tours: Efficient time management

Silvia can find tenants without the need for viewings, saving valuable time and effort. HousingAnywhere's detailed listings and comprehensive information allows potential tenants to make informed decisions without physically visiting the property. As a result, Silvia experiences a significant reduction in time spent on property tours, ensuring that their focus remains on delivering exceptional rental experiences.

I don’t like having to do many viewings. I show the room to many people, they come and in the end most of them don't take the room. With HousingAnywhere I get to focus on improving the occupancy of my apartments and not waste any time on viewings.

Maximizing occupancy, minimizing losses: Strategic planning and maintenance

One of the standout benefits of HousingAnywhere is the ability to book properties in advance. This feature has enabled Silvia to achieve high occupancy rates by effectively planning and managing her rental properties. With a steady flow of reservations, she can proactively maintain her properties and optimize returns on her investments. HousingAnywhere's platform serves as a vital tool for strategic planning, ensuring minimal vacancies and maximizing rental income.

Every time the tenant comes through HousingAnywhere, they stay here until the end of the contract.This means I already know the move-in and move-out dates well in advance which helps me plan better. I don't have gaps between bookings because of this I don’t lose any money.

Top tip for success: Keeping listings up-to-date and transparent

Silvia wholeheartedly recommends HousingAnywhere to fellow property owners and tenants alike. Her advice to property owners is to keep listings updated and transparent. By maintaining accurate listings and clearly outlining policies on the platform, property owners can attract high-quality tenants quickly and efficiently.

I think if you want to be successful renting out online then as a landlord you have to be very transparent with your listings. Give detailed descriptions about your property, have high quality pictures and use the tools that the platform provides you to set the right expectations with the tenants. I keep all my listings updated and this has helped me have very good experience with tenants
