If you are renting out furnished Vancouver 1 bedroom apartments it’s imperative that you learn some basics in reading body language. Homes that are listed at below $2,000 a month rent will attract many more applications, and a much more diverse crowd than the luxury Vancouver rental condo market. You never want to allow a bad apple into your home so you want to learn how to observe potential tenants as they are viewing your condo for rent. You can tell a lot about a person by their body language. How does the renter react to your questions? Do they cross their arms defensively or are they avoiding eye contact? Are they open with you, keeping their arms at their sides? Notice the way couples look at each other as they look around. Take note of any whispered conversation that would alarm you to a potential problem. If they seem secretive, then they may have something to hide.
People who look to the sides a lot are nervous, lying, or distracted.
However, if a person looks away from the speaker, it very well could be a comfort display or indicate submissiveness. Looking askance generally means the person is distrustful or unconvinced. Your Vancouver furnished condo is likely one of your biggest assets so you must safeguard it carefully from tenants that are not AAA.
If someone looks down at the floor a lot, they are probably shy or timid. People also tend to look down when they are upset, or trying to hide something emotional. People are often thinking and feeling unpleasant emotions when they are in the process of staring at the ground.
Some cultures believe that looking at someone in the eyes is a sign of disrespect, or is only done with intimate friends or family, so this could explain why someone is avoiding eye contact with you.
Dilated pupils mean that the person is interested. Keep in mind, however, that many substances cause pupils to dilate, including alcohol, cocaine, amphetamines, MDMA, LSD and others. Don’t mistake having a few drinks for attraction.
If their eyes seem focused far away, that usually indicates that a person is in deep thought or not listening.
In the end, there’s a reason that Lower Mainland and Downtown Vancouver property management companies are in existence. People rely on their judgement and expertise.
