Rent to midnight Texter ? (by Homer [TX]) Posted on: Mar 23, 2019 8:30 AM
Message:

Iíve had a vacancy for the past 3 days, last night I got a text at 12:30, asking to see the house. Since my phone goes silent at 11 pm, I didnít see it until about 8:30 when I work up. My first reaction was to tag the text as a midnight texter, so that I would never respond to that number in the future. Now, had that been an email, it would have been fine. Am I too quick to judge? My thoughts are that they will be inconsiderate of my time by texting at all hours. What would you do? --75.141.xxx.xxx

I don't see the problem. It would be different if they phoned you, but why not send a text? --24.20.xxx.xxx

Message:

Eh. Depends on your set up. I used to get calls only and that would've made me mad. Then I moved into texts and emails mainly and it didn't bother me too much. Now I'm fully automated and don't really interact with them, so I don't care if they inquire at 2am drunk in their underwear. --50.107.xxx.xxx

A call or text at that hour seems very inconsiderate to me,i wouldn't respond,that have to know that a text at that hour could wake you up but didn't care. --72.231.xxx.xxx

BTW I'm not sure if it has to do with my carrier or coverage exactly, but I can receive texts hours or even a day after it was sent. --24.20.xxx.xxx

I don't give my phone number in my ads, for this reason, just encourages the stupid.

They email me thru Zillow their THEIR. Number and I call at MY convienece --174.230.xx.xx

"but I can receive texts hours or even a day after it was sent. " And this is why I do phone calls, because text and email are unreliable when time is of the essence --174.230.xx.xx

It amazes me that landlords give their phone number to prospective tenants, let alone call them. --76.120.xx.xx

I don't care when they text. If I'm available, I'll respond or just wait until it's more convenient --208.54.xx.xxx

Message:

I donít care when they text. As long as they donít expect an immediate response, why should I?

Besides, what if they work 2nd or 3rd shift? Midnight to them could be normal wake time. --64.251.xxx.xxx




Rent to midnight Texter ? (by AllyM [NJ]) Posted on: Mar 23, 2019 2:47 PM
Message:

People don't think of texts as annoying others because the ring or buzz is so quiet and really designed for not annoying others at work etc. I would wonder how annoying this midnight owl would be to others if it's a multi. Some folks are up all night raging around because they don't get enough vitamin B 12 and the other B vitamins. That's cause they fill their shopping carts with pancakes and waffles. --73.248.xxx.xxx

AllyB, I love your wacky posts! Lack of B12 causes people to rage around all night. LOL!!! --76.120.xx.xx

Wink wink... I'm an early raise so for late night texters i reply early AM... doesn't ever work out. So i just carry on. --99.203.xx.xx

Doesnít bother me. I leave my phone downstairs and on vibrate so it doesnít wake me. My kids know to call the house phone if itís an emergency. I will only respond during reasonable business hours. --24.61.xxx.xx

Message:

I'm with Barb, and it sounds like you are smart to go silent overnight. I don't even think it's outrageous for someone to call in the middle of the night. I've worked 2nd and 3rd shift before. If they assume it's an office number, they may expect to leave a message and wait for a call back.

The important thing is that only an office number is put in ads (if any). Meaning that it does go to voicemail - you do NOT answer at all hours. --68.10.xxx.x

My phone is off in off hours, Google voice works the same way, no reply till 830 next day, even if the fire dept calls what could I do? Drive over in the morning just the same... I would call in the morning, leave msg as needed.

Some people don't have a clue how to conduct themselves. If he starts his bad habits now, wait until he's your tenant when he really starts to annoy you. --47.156.xx.xx

Message:

I used to feel this way. I've learned that they are probably just surfing through a bunch of ads and sending texts to the ones they are interested in. They don't expect an answer until the next day. Text is the new voice mail. --72.209.xxx.xxx

Message:

Unfortunately that's the way it is now it seems. Either that's when they are available (after work) or they are partying and get into a fight and now they are "looking to move out" to prove a point to the other.

How many times have you responded to a text, phone call or email, etc and the person on the other end replies "oh, yeah - I'm not looking any longer" and it may have only been a few minutes to a few hours. LOL

Good times, good times. --69.201.xx.xxx




Rent to midnight Texter ? (by Robin [WI]) Posted on: Mar 24, 2019 10:54 AM
Message:

I think the accepted etiquette nowadays is that it's okay to send a text whenever you want, knowing that it's an unobtrusive way to reach out and can be responded to at the other person's convenience. I leave my phone downstairs when I go to bed, so it doesn't matter if I get a communication in the middle of the night. Don't be in too much of a hurry to project your values on a prospect. --204.210.xxx.xxx

I think itís rude and inconsiderate to text about an apt in the middle of the night like that. I would not respond to them. I also use a burner number app to manage rental inquiries - itís soo much easier to manage all the inquiries in one place and not mix it with my personal stuff. --24.94.xx.xx

I have houses in a college town. I have received texts at 3 am. I respond next business day. not something I get my knickers in a twist about. --104.218.xxx.xx




Rent to midnight Texter ? (by Deanna [TX]) Posted on: Mar 26, 2019 5:45 AM
Message:

Just like I don't care when an email was sent, I don't care when a text is sent. I'll glance at it if I happen to notice-- I usually leave my phone on the charger in the next room-- but there's no compulsion to respond any more promptly to a text than to a voicemail, an email, or anything else.

Because I'm never sure if anyone else has their phone off/on silent/in another room at night, I generally limit my texting to regular calling hours. Most phones have "Do Not Disturb" mode where it can be put on a regular schedule and will filter what kind of sounds/notifications it makes during a certain time period. (It's usually under Settings.)

But I've spoken to people in my own family who are annoyed with other (older) family members because they deliberately refuse to activate the DnD mode-- they want to be notified by every incoming message, by golly, and then end up being irritated at the younger family members for disturbing them with annoying messages too late at night. :P --96.46.xxx.xx

Prospective tenants call/text the google number so I don't care if they text in the middle of the night.

The probability is they will get a return text at 6:30a since that is when I sit down to start looking at things. --165.201.xxx.xxx
