Landlords showing their own properties encounter the same risks as real estate agents. Secure Show I.D. verifications can help reduce that risk while acting as the first step in a screening process. And with the rise in fraudulent Craigslist and other online ads asking for deposits to preview a property, prospective tenants can use Secure Show to verify the landlord or homeowner before exchanging money.
"Can I see your property in person?"
A prospective buyer or renter expresses interest in seeing a property in a private showing, and contacts the broker, agent or landlord. The agent explains their policy is to verify the identity of all prospects with a simple 5 minute process — Secure Show!
"Just follow the link"
The agent purchases a verification and sends the prospect a link to complete the verification process. The Secure Show servers will first confirm the prospect's cell phone, then coach them through a simple scan of their driver's license and uploading a photo.
"You've been verified. Let's meet"
Once the I.D. has been verified, Secure Show will send both parties a certificate with a unique match code and photo of the person they are meeting. It can be printed or displayed on a mobile device.
