The adoption of voice assistants like Amazon Alexa and Google Assistant continue to surge. According to an eMarketer Study, 33% of people are now using voice assistants regularly. So, odds are your prospective renters are regularly interacting with one.
Think about how AI assistants have streamlined day to day activities for people, like refilling prescriptions, ordering groceries and handling banking transactions. If you have an Amazon Alexa device, you are aware that her skills are constantly evolving. Every new release offers users even more available commands. The technology has made the shopping experience faster and easier and more convenient than ever.
This same technology is available for apartment management companies to deliver to their rental prospects to create a better customer experience. Most apartment hunters have done their research about your community before they call. When they do call, over 60% of prospects are wanting to get pricing and availability information.

To stay competitive in today’s rental market, you need to always be available to prospective renters. That means you need to answer their initial call and their questions. If you don’t answer or the call goes to voicemail, they will move on to the next property. Leveraging a virtual leasing agent gives your leasing team peace of mind that they will not miss a prospect inquiry while they are busy giving a tour or helping an existing resident. They can rest easy knowing they have a “teammate” that works around the clock and offers a modern and consistent customer experience.
