Years ago, when a landlord owned a property that was located out of state, they typically kept the key to the property hidden under the doormat, or some other remote part of the property, so that they could tell tenants how to get into the property if they had to show the property remotely.
Times have changed, in 2020-2021 there are wide variety of online tools that landlords can use to manage their rental properties remotely including rently.com, one of the best services on the internet which enables landlords to screen tenants before allowing them to self tour their rental properties.
