Contacting a Landlord

Whether making contact by email or phone, landlords will use your inquiry as a method of pre-screening. Follow these tips to maximize your chances of receiving a positive response from the landlord.

Keep your email concise and professional. Create a template message you are satisfied with, then simply update it with details from other rentals you are interested in and reuse it.

Chances are pretty high that you will reach someone’s voicemail, but be prepared to talk with the landlord if they answer. Writing down a few notes in advance can help you stay focused, clear, and calm.
