How can I make online apartment rental applications easy for brokers?

Asked by Walter Chen, San Francisco, CA Mon Nov 8, 2010

Based on a number of complaints I've heard from brokers and tenants alike as to the hassle of the apartment application process, I've created a website to make online apartment rental applications free and easy for brokers. Brokers can post applications which tenants can fill out and submit online.

Login at (user:, password: broker).

Is this something that might be useful to you as an apartment rental broker? I'm hoping to make brokers' jobs easier. Any feedback would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you, John. Do you know the reason why your owners want you to collect the application fee with the application? We plan on having tenant screening services bundled with the online rental applications.

Yes, owners of the properties I manage require that I collect the application fee with the application. My owners also require that I use a system that checks eviction and criminal records in addition to credit, so being able to attach a credit report wouldn't be a benefit for me.

John, at the moment we aren't able to process the application fee. Is that a dealbreaker for you? We've noticed in San Francisco that many brokers like to have the application in with them before an open house, so the tenant can pay the fee at the open house if he/she wants to apply for the place. Also, tenants are able to attach their own credit reports using our site.

In addition, we're planning on integrating credit checks into the site. Thanks.

How do you process an application fee? I don't see that on your site.
