Multiple offers means that one of the buyers will probably get it and is like a silent auction.

There are a lot of services you can subscribe to that will charge you either a monthly fee or per instance to get all three credit bureaus. You can check the internet or ask a few rental agencies who they use. You need to have the potential applicant sign a release to allow you to check their credit and background. You will need their ssn and last two years addresses. You should also ask for at least last month's pay stubs and check their employment. Lease applications usually provide all necessary sign offs and information you need for all.

You can also ask a potential applicant to present this information to you with any offer or charge them a portion or all of the fee. You may eliminate some applicants, but decent rentals are flying off the market in most areas, so it is competitive. If they are using an agent, they will often check their credit anyway and have that all to submit. Good luck!
