Swap face-to-face flat viewings for virtual ones with Badi’s new Video Calls feature

Are you looking to rent out your spare room or find a new flatmate, but you’re not too keen on doing many face-to-face flat viewings right now? We don’t blame you. That’s why we wanted to make sure you could rent your room online, from start to finish. 

If you’ve been using Badi for a while, you already know that we pair you up with the people who are most likely to share the same lifestyle as you. So that’s a good start. But the renters still typically want to see the flat before they commit, understandably.

Well, we’re happy to announce that now you can do virtual flat visits, straight from the Badi app! Go to your inbox and click on the top left button to request a video call. It’s your chance to get to know your prospective flatmate even better and to do a flat tour quickly, easily, and most importantly – safely. You won’t have to exchange your personal contact details or switch to another platform. And you won’t have to meet many people face-to-face, in these strange times of social distancing.

In the video below, we share four simple tips on how to make the most of this new feature and ensure an efficient video call that has higher chances of landing you a room booking. Check it out!
