Self-guided tours are a requirement in today’s busy rental housing market.
In fact, 42% of renters prefer to view properties outside of regular business hours.

Tech-savvy renters are growing increasingly accustomed to on-demand services.
Self-guided tours allow prospects to schedule a convenient tour time and view properties on their own,
at their preferred day and time, in a safe and secure way.

How does it work?

  • Renters find your listing on homes.rently.com or syndicated ILS
  • Renters complete a multi-layer security process
  • At the door, renters enter a one-time, durational entry code into a smart lock
  • Post tour, renters provide feedback and complete online rental application.

Testimonials

Hear from our satisfied customers

What we’re finding is that most of our clients prefer to do a self-guided tour in lieu of the guided tour.

Kristina Bernatis, More Residential

Within the first month of implementing Rently, we secured three new lease applications from prospects that self-toured themselves outside of business hours (i.e. between 6 PM and 8 PM). Without this flexibility for prospects, it is likely that we would not have seen these leases otherwise.

Origin Partners

RangeWater has used Rently products for both self-guided tours and whole property smart home solutions.

Through strategic planning and the smart tech provided by Rently, The Cottages at Ridge Pointe was able to realize a significant savings in payroll while maintaining high occupancy and growing our budgeted rents. The use of smart locks and thermostats has enabled us to work more efficiently and still exceed our budgeted goals for the community ahead of the expected ROI timeline.

Henry Zuaznabar Senior Director of Property Management- BTR, RangeWater Real Estate

We are seeing about a 70% conversion rate for prospects that toured through Rently. Needless to say, we are now using Rently at the majority of our communities.

Echelon Property Group

Rently has provided our property teams with another valuable tool to help showcase our communities to prospective renters with its self-guided tour technology. The platform integrates well with our systems and prospects can easily navigate the app to tour when it is most convenient for their schedules, even outside of normal business hours.

CF Real Estate Services

Rently has really benefited us a lot by not only helping us to be able to have more opportunities for touring and touring qualified prospects, but also in helping reduce the demand on our associates so that they have more time for customer service with our residents and prospects.
