    Check your spam/junk folder:

    • (Google 'how to white list an email address')
    Photos and presentation: (ask a friend: would you stay here?)
    • Are you in the price range of other properties: too high? Too low?
    • Enough short brief points highlighting the home, neighbourhood and commute to medical facilities.
    • Do the pictures look inviting and show well?
    • Too much clutter? Toilet seat up? Curtains half open, messy.
    • Ask a friend to objectively look at your listing. Is it straight to the point? Key features highlighted?
    • Often medical trainees book site unseen due to their rigourous schedules.
    Poor time of the year:
    • there are specific times of the year medical trainees search for housing.
      • July generally the start of internship, residency and fellowship (longer term 1-2+ years)
      • August Sept new medical students gernerally start their year (Some medical schools have varied intake dates)
      • various times of the year medical trainees do short term electives, away rotations, observerships,  requiring furnished accommodations away from their home medical schools
    • Medical trainees can be sporadic with their commiunication. Often exams, night rotations, on call, application deadlines etc get in ther way of their ability to reach out ansd search. Make it easy for them. Facetime. Skype, Zoom, Teams. (Don't be surprised if you receive followup communication in the middle of the night after radio silence for weeks. They are probably in panic mode, worried they have not secured a place to stay)
