Bobby I’m in the same situation as you. I’m in a different city from my property for lease. I purchased a pager with voice mail, a fax machine, and created a new screen name exclusively for that rental property.
All of these numbers are on the flyers posted inside the home’s windows and in the “information tube” outside.
I will also include them in the newspaper ad.
I would not give out my cell phone number when the pager can do the same thing for me. Another reason I chose this method was if interested parties are not willing or are unable to make a 30 second long distance phone call to leave their name and number, I may not want them for a tenant.I welcome any thoughts or feedback from others.
