After dealing with a costly eviction this year, I wanted to share the importance of properly screening renters. The U.S. Census Bureau reported over 4.4 million renters across the US are “very likely” to face eviction. Brokers screen tenants manually making it hard to properly verify information and it takes way too long. At the end of the day, brokers are only incentivized to deliver a tenant as fast as possible, even if they aren’t truly qualified.
Luckily, there are companies out there that can help. I found a great online tool called Cityline that not only vets and processes applicants in minutes but also automatically generates lease contracts. Cityline is completely free to use and has made onboarding new tenants easier than ever. I’ve dropped a link below if you want to learn more.
