Any salesperson would tell you – it’s extremely important to respond quickly and professionally to your customers.

But what happens when a property seeker isn’t a good fit for your listing?

Some will tell you to simply ignore them and continue looking for more suitable property seekers – however, this means you’re leaving money on the table!

Some of the more common situations you might face would be that:

  • Property seeker does not meet the landlord’s requirements
  • Property seeker meets the landlord’s requirements
  • Property seeker is not eligible due to the Ethnic Integration Policy
  • Property seeker has certain clarifications on house rules

Even though that particular property seeker might not be suitable for that listing, doesn’t mean they won’t be suitable for another listing in future.
