Benefits for Real Estate Agents

You shouldn’t have to jump through hoops to find the best tenants for your client’s property. With ApplyConnect® you can enjoy these benefits while confidently selecting renters through our straightforward screening process.

Free Online Rental Application and Marketing Tools

  • Online Rental Application: ApplyConnect®’s easy online format allows your applicants to submit all of the important information you need to know when filling a vacant rental property. Applications can be completed within minutes, have FCRA and legal disclosures relevant to your state, and automatically move the applicant to the tenant screening process at no additional cost.
  • Online Rent Payments: Start accepting your tenant's rent through ApplyConnect®'s online rent payment tool - completely free for landlords and real estate agents.
  • Customizable Advertising Property Links: Quickly create a custom URL property link to display next to your listings, which automatically sends the applicant to ApplyConnect®. This is a great tool for advertising vacancies on your website, social media accounts or even sending directly through email.
  • SMS Text Messaging: Get immediately notified via text message seconds after the background screening report and online rental application are ready to view.
  • Free Resources: Other free resources include state notices, to give you additional protections legally, and our blog, a helpful source on new legislation, tenant screening tips, and product updates.

Automatic Report Sharing

Immediately after the applicant purchases their credit report and background check, it will be automatically shared with you. You will receive an email & text notification, and can review it by logging into your account from any smart device. Reports can printed or viewed online for 30 days after being shared.

"As a realtor and landlord, this site provides all you need to do a background check. It is very easy to set up and use. The tenant pays for the background check, which includes credit report, criminal background, and eviction. It is also one of the cheapest sites for the tenant to pay for the background check."
