How to Initiate an Application

Almost all online rental applications connect the renter directly with the landlord, completely removing a real estate agent from the transaction. We decided to change this, so we built our own online rental application from scratch putting the agent at the center of the transaction. Additionally, our online rental application tool is completely FCRA compliant. 

Best part? It’s free for agents and landlords! The applicant pays the cost of filling out an application and typically, this fee ranges between $45 and $80 depending on the partner. If the initial application is denied, the applicant can use that same application an unlimited number of times for the next 30 days.
