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."
