I've heard Zillow has a tenant application/screening process. Is this a good thing to use or are there better choices available to me?
I haven’t used them as my PM does them for me but rentprep does that. They have a podcast you can listen to and see if they strike a chord with you.
@Adam G. Cameron I use Cozy to do screening for our rentals and found it works well. There is also Transunion SmartMove and Rentprep.
@Jason Duryea Thanks for the info. How much does one of these services generally cost.
@Eric Worral I just tried to check out the RentPrep website and I got an "Error 403 Forbidden" message you may want to look into just FYI.
@Mark DeLorenzo on it right now. Just launched new site and having a hiccup with new hosting provider. Thank you.
@Adam G. Cameron Cozy is free for Landlords and tenants, except for background/credit check is $39.99 paid directly by applicant. I’m not quite sure the cost of the other services because I don’t currently use them.
I use National Tenant Network. I've found they are easy to deal with and not very expensive.
@Bob B. Was just on their website and it seems you need to pick and choose individual screening reporting options. (seem very pricey) Do you know if they offer a package for background /credit for one price?
@Zachary D Woods I just have them pull CBR. I verify employment and other background through FB and
@Bob B. I think I like that approach alot! Appreciate the advice
