Managing Applications Online

Long gone are the days of multiple hard-copy applications and burdensome, time-consuming vetting processes. Multiple online services have now made the application process a breeze for landlords.

The top benefits of managing applications online:

  1. Generate More Applicants

Online applications are easily shareable and can be posted on a multitude of social media channels. Connect with tech-savvy, young consumers who are accustomed to using the internet. As a landlord, the more applicants you are able to easily generate, the more comfortable you will be with the tenant you accept.

  1. Save Time and Be Organized

Life is much easier for a landlord who doesn’t have to print, mail, deliver and sort through hard-copy applications. Instead, digital applications are neatly organized in a single, easily accessible place.

  1. Security

1Sensitive information from hopeful applicants will be stored in a secure location, yet can still be easily accessed by landlords on the go. For applicants, this means peace of mind that only the correct people who are legally able to see their information actually do.

As a caveat, landlords will want to review the online application form of choice and what specific information is being collected. Rental Beast offers landlords a thorough application process with checks conducted directly through TransUnion.

It is also recommended that landlords reach out to applicants prior to filling out the online application. Submitting a substantial amount of personal information can be off-putting to some renters and can, therefore, lead to a lack of pertinent or comprehensive data.

4. Be Kept in the Loop as an Agent

1On Rental Beast’s unique application platform, agents are able to stay informed regarding where a client’s application stands in the process. While an agent won’t be able to access or see a client’s personal information (only the landlord will), he or she will remain a party to the entire process and won’t be kept in the dark.
