What do you get when we screen your tenants for you?
Quality Tenants & 'Peace of Mind'
As busy as you are, you try to stay up on government regulations, and hope your staff follows the law. We audit your company for best practices in three vital regulations, and incorporate best practices into your company’s policy and procedures. Ours is a 'We Do it for You' solution that is super easy to implement.
Fair Housing Regulations EHO is your business fully compliant?
- Is your Resident Selection Criteria in writing?
- Does your staff know and follow your policies and procedures consistently?
- Do applicants see your commitment to Fair Housing right in the application process?
- Do owners and staff know when and how to override your published standards?
- Do you follow the 'two step rule' in your office?
Fair Credit Reporting Act FCRA
- Do you send Adverse Action Letters when declining an applicant?

Real Time Tenant Screening Checklist©
We start by giving you written Resident Selection Criteria. Your approval guidelines are then imported into your custom Real Time Tenant Screening Checklist©. Your staff can see our staff complete this private Google Spreadsheet in real time, so you always know exactly what's happening with every application. Your eyes immediately go to the yellow and red areas of concern. All of our forms are optimized to be easily viewed from a smart phone or tablet. Get real time information on the go.
Charge higher deposits with confidence
(Where permitted by law), or opt for a traditional 1 month deposit model.
"In 1996 I started charging larger deposits when applicants fell short of our very high standards. Since then I've learned that the tenants who agree to pay the higher deposit are the same tenants who work hard to earn a refund. With higher deposits, we ask property owners for less money during turn overs. We feature our tenant selection process in our management presentation, and owners love it. This is one of the best things a manager can do to win more business while managing a portfolio of better tenants."
Applicant Progress Report©
We call applicants immediately upon receipt of their application and send them a link to their real time Applicant Progress Report©.
Tenants know what's going on without having to call your office repeatedly asking "Am I approved yet?" You can also choose to have us send this report to the applicant's agent, or the property owner.
Real-Time Access to Screening Process
