Imagine having to drive around town for 4 hours showing rental properties, to find a rental that fits the clients needs, then help them complete the application and see if the application gets accepted to then wait weeks for a commission check of $150 to $200.
The next renter you drive out gets rejected, so now only made $75 to 100 per 4 hrs (minus expenses)
If they spent the same 4 hours with a house buyer it can lead to a $1500 to $2000 commission.
The rental market is not designed to be run by agents. It only works for Rental management companies that have full time employees.
So don't take it personal. It has nothing to do with you not being a serious very good renter. Look for a rental management company to help you out. Was this answer helpful? If so please click on the "green thumbs up" or the "best answer".
