Gone are the days when students would fill out a form to live in your apartment, answer your phone calls, or even write you a rent check. What IS a rent check anyway? I’m 39 and I haven’t owned a checkbook in over 15 years. So what exactly are students staring at when they walk on campus, sit in class and lie in bed? Software as a service (SaaS). This includes Netflix, YouTube, Snapchat, Mint, Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Tinder and LinkedIn. SaaS is the drug of choice for millennials, who don’t want to dial a phone number or stand around in a leasing office. They want to “tap” their way into a new apartment while “talking” to a leasing agent as little as possible. We now live in a society where time is short and attention spans are even shorter. Welcome to the future.
