RentApp: Free, Online Rental Applications
We love RentApp. It is just so easy and convenient.

Today, AppFolio, providers of web-based property management software introduce RentApp – free, online rental applications for all property managers.

Rental applications are typically printed and faxed by the prospective renter, leaving the property manager with stacks of time-consuming paperwork. The online rental application solutions available in the market today are expensive and often not easy to customize and include with vacancy advertisements. RentApp was built to solve these problems and provide all property managers the fastest and easiest way to accept online applications and screen prospective residents - saving time that can be used for more important tasks.    

Within minutes, property managers can sign-up, customize and then add links to the online application right on their vacancy ads. RentApp also includes the option to add on credit, criminal and background screening, with packages starting at $10 per screen and no long-term commitments.


  •     Free: Sign up and offer online applications for free.    
  •     Easy and Fast: In minutes, property managers can sign-up online, set-up and customize the online rental applications then add a link from all vacancy postings.
  •     Compliant & Secure: The online applications are compliant across the United States, customizable and 100% secure.
  •     Option to add Resident Screening: For property managers looking to streamline another task, there is an option to include a complete credit report, nationwide eviction and criminal search with packages starting at $10/per screen.

“Submitting and accepting a rental application is still a very archaic process that depends heavily on printing and faxing,” said Brian Donahoo, CEO, AppFolio. “We are always looking for these opportunities to take paper-heavy processes and transform them into an easy, almost enjoyable experience and RentApp is the perfect example of this concept in action.”

Forward-looking property managers also recognize that renters will love the ease and convenience of applying online and this will ultimately translate to more applicants and better choices for property managers. "We love RentApp,” said Edith Sanchez-Badawy (Porta Rossa Apartments). “It is just so easy and convenient for our prospective residents and our leasing agents to receive applications online -- our company can now reach many more clients."

RentApp is available for all residential property managers now and interested property managers can sign-up online to get started right away. AppFolio customers already have this functionality included with AppFolio’s complete web-based property management software.    

Headquartered in Santa Barbara, AppFolio was started by a team of technology leaders with proven experience creating software that businesses love to use. AppFolio creates complete, easy-to-use, web-based solutions for multiple markets and the first AppFolio SaaS service (AppFolio Property Manager) was specifically created for residential property managers.
