Like a good agent, you make sure all of your applicants undergo a comprehensive tenant verification process. While we have covered the importance of screening reports in the past, another factor that is paramount in verifying your tenants is contacting the references listed on their online rental applications.
We’ve previously shown you how you can find great tenants easily. But knowing who the bad seeds are can be just as important as identifying the good ones. Here’s how you can use a tenant verification system to find out more about your applicants’ rental history.
As a Realtor, it’s easy to have a "me-vs.-the-world" mentality. You’re always counting on yourself to get things done the right way, whether it be verifying your tenants, scheduling showings, or keeping in touch with your clients.

Some tasks will have instant effects, like showing off your happy customers on social media, while others, like running a thorough tenant verification before referring a renter to a landlord, might take longer to impact your reputation.
Between millions of listings, agents, and applications, renting a property can be a daunting task. If you don’t follow a process, or if you are new to the rental landscape, you can easily get lost and overwhelmed. However, simple things like doing a little research or using an online rental application with tenant verification built-in can make finding a new apartment significantly easier.
Many Realtors will tell you that meeting an applicant in person is all they need to verify their tenants. While an in-depth conversation can give you an idea of someone’s personality, it probably isn’t enough to get to know them as a renter.
