Four small models of houses with paper clips on them

I just returned from our annual Property Management Broker/Owner Conference in Las Vegas. As always, there were some great nuggets to take home with us. This year, the unofficial theme was automation. The industry is moving towards auto-showing of vacant properties. Internet leads are automatically responded to, prospects are self-screened and there is an auto-follow up. Prospects schedule showings on a pop-up calendar. If the prospect does not like a house, they are presented with other DKRentals vacancies. All this should allow our leasing agent to focus on serious prospects who are in the process of applying, and will expedite renting vacant properties. This week we will be evaluating three companies that provide this solution. We hope to roll out automated showing by May 1.

Next month I will give you an update on this project.
