Step 1: Set up your online application
Almost every real estate agent has gone digital with the application process. Not only does it streamline the workflow, but with the software available, it can automate a significant amount of the application process, speeding your application through the necessary steps.
However, if your online application is not set up correctly, and significant information and documentation is missing, you’re not going to make any progress at all, and your application will come to complete halt.
As a property manager, my all-time favourite application I can receive is one that I can finish processing once I start it – with the only potential delay being responses from Personal, Professional and Rental References.
By taking the time to set up your online application, on multiple platforms, you are increasing the likelihood of your application being processed as soon as it reaches the Property Manager (or Leasing Agent – depending on the agency you’re applying with).
