Q081-Why the Home Pending Rented Before My Viewing?

Last Updated on 2024-03-09 by Tom

You’ve eagerly booked a viewing, anticipating the chance to step into your potential new home, only to receive a message informing you that the property is now “pending rented.” What gives? In this blog post, we’ll delve into why this might happen and what steps you can take to increase your chances of securing an A+ home from our ACTs Roar community.

Scenario 01: Previous Viewers Applied and Approved Conditionally

One common scenario is that some earlier viewers have already applied for and been approved for the property. They may have been given a limited time to secure the lease—typically within 24 to 48 hours—resulting in the property being labeled as “pending rented.” While there’s a chance the deal might fall through, based on our experience, these homes tend to get rented out. That’s why we make it a priority to inform you as soon as possible if a property you intended to view is under this status. This gives you the opportunity to explore other options rather than wasting your time planning a visit to a property that may no longer be available.

Scenario 02: Skipping the Viewing Step

Another increasingly common scenario is prospective tenants skipping the physical viewing altogether. This could be due to various reasons such as being referred by satisfied tenants or being unable to physically visit due to being out of town. These individuals rely on their trust in our reputation and the detailed information provided, including video tours, to make their decision. While this may seem risky, it often pays off, putting them in a prime position to secure the property swiftly.

Strategies to Increase Your Chances

Now that you understand why a property might be pending rented before you view it, let’s discuss strategies to enhance your chances of securing your dream home:

1. Apply in Advance: Consider filling out the rental application before your scheduled viewing. This puts you ahead of other potential tenants once you see the home and decide to proceed immediately.

2. Trust the Details: If you’re confident in your decision-making abilities, rely on the detailed information provided, including video tours. When you feel ready to proceed, simply reach out for the application link.


Ultimately, finding the perfect rental home is about finding the right match.
