Rental showings of occupied unit
« on: June 09, 2018, 01:55:23 PM »
I am in a landlord in California and have a tenant that just gave their 30 day notice. How should I navigate showing the apartment while she is still in place? Besides a 24 hour notice, any legalities I should be aware of? Would you recommend setting up one day with a block of time for all interested applicants? thanks for any advice!

Your idea of doing a 'block of showings' is a good one. It sounds like you're trying to think outside the box.
Do you have a website where you can post 360-degree "virtual tour" photos? 

There are lots of "virtual tour cameras" available for cheap on places like Amazon where you can go in, take photos of the property when it's in the best "cleaned-up" condition, and share those on-line.   While this won't replace in-person showings, it could complement them, and pre-screen the property for interested potential tenants.  If you don't end up renting until after the current tenant moves out, you could follow up with an 'empty unit' virtual tour', and allow renters to see it both WITH and WITHOUT furniture for scale.
