Tenant Screening Process

We take tenant screening seriously. Having responsible renters in your property is one of the best things you can do as a landlord. We know that responsible tenants means less property damage and consistent rental income.

We do a thorough background check of each applicant. We conduct pre-screening and contact prior landlords to make an informed decision. Analyzing the finances of the potential tenant is also part of our process, including doing employment verification.

We also look into each tenant’s background. Our tenant screening process is consistent and we’re careful to adhere to all fair housing laws.

Rent Collection

We do away with the old and time-consuming rent collection method of knocking on doors every month. We use online methods that allow tenants to skip the trip to the bank and save more time, making rent payments easier for both sides.

This way, property owners are able to promptly receive their monthly income regularly and proceed to allocate the returns for rental improvements or to increase their property portfolio.
