We started using AppFolio’s screening and love it. The reports are clean and precise and provide a great summary of all the information we need.

AppFolio, providers of web-based property management software, now includes the option to screen prospective renters by simply pressing the ‘Screen Now’ button right in the AppFolio software, avoiding the hassle and time consuming process of working in multiple systems. Clients can choose from two screening packages: 1) Credit and Nationwide Eviction Data or 2) Credit and Nationwide Eviction and Criminal Data and both include an easy to read summary and FICO credit score.

Key Features Include:

  •     Built-In to AppFolio – Run screening reports right from AppFolio by simply clicking the ‘Screen Now’ button in the AppFolio software.
  •     Fast Reports - Screening results (Credit, Nationwide Eviction & Criminal Data) are displayed quickly, in an easy-to-read report. Because all data is centralized in AppFolio property managers have the option to approve the applicant and offer the house or apartment right there on the spot, filling vacancies faster.
  •     Easy To Use - All of the applicant's information is now in AppFolio (along with a copy of the screening report). If the property manager decides to offer the apartment, simply click the "Convert to Tenant" button and begin the move in process.

AppFolio customers find and retain better residents faster, increase their profitability and love the ability to work from anywhere. With the rapid development cycle, AppFolio continues to delight customers with this release of tenant screening. “We started using AppFolio’s screening and love it. The reports are clean and precise and provide a great summary of all the information we need. We used to work in multiple systems and it saves us so much time having everything in one place," says Becca Horner from MC3 Multifamily.

“We are always looking for opportunities to help our customers improve their business and offering the fastest, easiest way to screen prospective residents has a huge impact,” says Brian Donahoo, AppFolio CEO. “Our customers (who are using screening) estimate they’re saving up to 30 minutes per applicant, and this really adds up when managing multiple units. With the addition of Resident Screening, our customers continue to use the word ‘love’ to describe how they feel about AppFolio and this is what we’re striving for with each new feature we release. ”
