Automated Lockboxes with unique codes

6 Replies

I want to automate the showing process, by having prospects registering (sending maybe a copy of the DL) and providing them a unique code within a specific time window to go and see the property. 

I know some big investment funds do it this way. I don't mind being present during showings to vet the prospect because the time consumed is considerably a lot and only a few will actually be really interested. At the end of the day whoever I decide to put in the property will be thoroughly vetted. Plus rental properties are empty...

Do you have in mind any lockbox providers that can do this?

So far I found only the "codebox"

My property manager for my 4-plex uses Rently for all of their properties and it seems to work well from what I see on my end (tenants in place).

 Yes, since I'm showing only rentals, I either setup an appointment with the tenant that is leaving, or the unit is already empty. 

I just dont want to give a lockbox code that I cant control who will go and when, and has access anytime, any day after I give it out.

I would definitely never give the code to anyone to show it to themselves. I would be more likely to use a service like rently, etc.  However, if a tenant is still living there, I would only show the property myself.  I wouldn't allow someone to be in their home unsupervised.

 Never unsupervised,  but almost always I have good tenants that will show themselves to other prospects. They are my best sellers almost.
