I advertise a property with a well known site which has an audience of millions. I also advertise with a company which specialises in properties like mine and chateaux but this company
filters the enquiries and then I get my deposit there is basic back ground info on the client to include contact details. With this method I know that the client has serious intentions to rent as the deposit, of course is non refundable.
Same principal as booking a flight. Once the date is reserved you have a 2 way promise.I pay a high percentage to this company but
it is worth it for safety and excellent marketing.
For me it is worth having less reservations from people who are prepared to pay for what they want than charge a lot less and get
more wear and tear on the property.
I am bringing this topic to you as I question....
We never know who is at the other side of an e mail.
At least with a tel call there are questions with answers...
Has anyone experienced any rental scams?
