Highly Selective Owner w/ Limited Experience Using Online Services - A Zenplace Success Story

 



Property Owner:
Lily

Property address:
Oliver St
Daly City, CA


Our studio was listed with Zenplace Platform in the midst of the coronavirus pandemic. Lockbox showings were activated so the property owners were not put at risk. Edits to the listing were easy for us, even though we aren’t tech-savvy! During the time it was listed, we decided to replace the carpets and we were able to take and upload new pictures easily.

Interest was not an issue with over 250 interested prospective tenants! The Zenplace Platform ensured that each interested potential tenant was qualified to see the unit, based on our specific criteria (no pets allowed, monthly income 3.5 times the monthly rent, no evictions), the tenants were able to schedule a visit through the platform and view the property at a time convenient for them. After each visit, feedback from the prospective tenants was updated through the portal for us to view and the interested tenants were invited to complete an application.  After a tenant applied, the applications and background reports (including credit and criminal checks) were provided to us for review. There was no pressure to take an application that did not meet all of our requirements, and we were able to cast a wide net to keep the interest growing.

Once we found our perfect tenants, we were able to create a lease with our specific addenda by following a simple fill-in-the-blank form. We were also able to keep the property listed until we had the security deposit and were able to toggle on and off the property visits and the listing as needed with ease. Thank you to Zenplace for providing a platform that allowed us to find the best tenants, not just the first applicants.

Are your rental property photos maximizing your listing results?

  Photos are the first impression of your property to hundreds of prospective renters. As a prospective tenant scrolls through the listings, the photo you display can make the difference between then clicking on your ad or going to the next. Having many photos for renters to look through will allow them to virtually tour the rental property in the time of social distancing. At Zenplace , our future tenants team will often be asked for more photos of properties prior to moving to the next steps of filling out their information to view it or submit an application. You want to ensure you are giving the best first impression possible with clean and quality photos, so here are a few tricks that will help your pictures work for you! Photo Quali ty : When the photos are blurry, dark or have fingers, it is not helpful for prospective tenants to get an understanding of what they are potentially renting. It will detract from the ad and confuse them. A full picture of either the outside, yard,

Finding a Tenant in a Pandemic - Zenplace Success Story

Property Owner: Madelaine Property address: Armstrong Pl Santa Clara, CA My parents and I have 3 houses in San Jose and Santa Clara that we have been renting out for over a decade. I needed a solution that took care of the tedious work for us. Since finding assistance with properties was new for me, I did not want the long term contract of a property manager. I signed up with Zenplace , and was amazed at the transparency and ease of the Owner’s Portal . As soon as prospective tenants expressed an interest in the available house, their information was uploaded to the portal for me to review. Within 7 days, 125 prospective tenants had shown interest! Thanks to the code changing, self access lockbox, 25 qualified prospective tenants were able to walk through the house, safely practicing social distancing. 10 applicant parties applied, and I was able to review their full credit and background screening, income documents to make an informed decision if I would like to move forward. I am so

Successfully Marketing Rental Properties Tenants on Their Terms - Zenplace Success Story

Property Owner: Symon Property address: Lennox Ave Oakland, CA My apartment in Oakland was rented out within weeks rather than the month or two I had anticipated. Interested tenants said they were able to easily schedule a viewing via contactless showing utilizing the Zenplace electronic lockbox . The no touch showing helped them feel like Zenplace was being proactive for their safety during the pandemic.  The interested tenants liked the reminders to view and submit an application for my apartment. The new t enants told me that during their search for an apartment in the recent weeks, this leasing process was the most responsive and they are very happy with Zenplace's services. Throughout the whole process, I was able to check out the progress of my marketing, including total interest and visitors to the apartment, and edit my ads in the portal to maximize my marketing. It was easy to upload, change and arrange the photos that displayed on all of the rental sites as well. The m
