The Best Leasing Investment You Can Make

With more multifamily housing professionals working from home, ensuring all your leasing processes are digitized is more important than ever. Integrating your resident screening with your property management software allows your team to access quality background reports easily while working remotely. While using a pre-set screening solution provided by your software service might be convenient, you could be shooting yourself in the foot by missing out on the benefits integrated screening has to offer.

Quality Control

While many property management software solutions offer some great resident screening options – chances are good that they are not experts. Your current software provider’s background checks might not cover everything you need to get an accurate, objective snapshot of an applicant’s eligibility. From a nationwide eviction search to criminal checks like the sex offender registry or the terrorist watch list, only a service that specializes in resident screening can help uphold your property’s standards.

After all, who wants cracks in their defenses against liabilities and renter headaches? With integrated screening, you do not need to compromise on quality. You get the best of both worlds.

  • Quick Tip!

    Not all resident screening services were created equal. When vetting which service you want to use, ask about how they accurately match your applicants to the right information, what information is included in their criminal screening, and what they do to ensure their screening information is up to date.

More Bang for your Buck

What is the point of paying for sub-par resident screening? Rather than using a pre-set screening package, going the integrated route allows you to shop around and hand select a resident screening company that is right for you and your properties. Not only is the quality higher, but the customer service is better. At the end of the day, you get a more tailored service and more bang for your buck.

Ease of Use

Of course, one of the biggest advantages of software integrations is that it is built right into your property management platform. No extra fuss. By integrating directly into your management software, you make it easier for your team request reports, vet applicants, and fill your vacancies. Reports stay securely behind your permission controls, meaning only the right people will have access to an applicant’s personal identifying information, credit report, and background check.

Resident screening integrations provide a distinct advantage that pre-made screening solutions can’t hold a candle to. With it, you can tailor your reports to fit your property’s needs through quality information, get more bang for your buck, and digitalize and streamline your leasing process into one platform. During the coronavirus, the multifamily housing industry has been migrating towards digital solutions. As more housing professionals work from home post-COVID, shifting towards screening integrations might just be your next best investment.
