LANCASTER, CA, May 22, 2014 /24-7PressRelease/
-- A recent product enhancement launched this week for ApplyConnect
, a revolutionary tenant screening solution which delivers comprehensive reports at no cost to landlords and real estate agents. ApplyConnect now has a multiple invite function that further simplifies the screening process.
The ApplyConnect enhancement allows the real estate agents and landlords to simultaneously invite up to four applicants who are interested in the same property address rather than having to complete an invite postcard for each applicant. This simple, yet comprehensive screening solution is a time saver.
ApplyConnect has no setup fees, no contracts and no onsite inspection requirement. With traditional tenant screening services, the time it takes for a credit reporting agency to establish an account can range from several days to a week. ApplyConnect is available immediately, 24/7 to renters, landlords and real estate agents at their convenience. This one-of-a-kind system delivers the full Experian credit report, risk score, nationwide eviction, criminal and sex offender search within seconds of an applicant purchasing and sharing their report online.
With ApplyConnect, agents and landlords expand the selection of qualified applicants to those with minimal credit history. The VantageScore 3.0 allows for approximately 35 million more consumers to be scored, as compared to other scoring models.
ApplyConnect is the first of its kind to deliver everything needed to evaluate an applicant's credit report and tenant background check with zero impact on the applicant's credit score. Considered a soft inquiry, the applicant initiates the process to share their credit report with a real estate agent or landlord.
Thoroughly examining an applicant's credit report and background check helps mitigate the risk of unwanted scenarios, such as late rental payments and property damage. As the rental market continues to see growth, ApplyConnect will continue to help real estate agents and landlords fill their vacancies quicker and with qualified renters, saving time and money through free and comprehensive tenant screening.
