Of course some are tenants! However many are decent LL with integrity. Not whining because some prospective tenants asks them to text them a phone number. They really treat tenants as a lower class and in doing so they show they have no class !
I am sorry but I am sick and tired of tenants acting like they are entitled to the apartment I am offering. Sending me text messages is informal and shows that you are too lazy to pick up the phone and have a NORMAL conversation like a mature adult.
texting is for people who already know each other. Don't text a total stranger's phone number, especially one that doesnt even have a Text Message Plan on their Phone!!!!
