San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) May 05, 2015
Zumper (https://www.zumper.com), the fastest growing online rental marketplace in the US with over one million monthly searches, today announced the launch of automated rental applications and tenant screening, as part of a broader effort to streamline the rental process for both tenants and professionals.
Instant Apply, Zumper’s new product, provides landlords a full suite of tenant screening services, including comprehensive rental applications and Experian credit reports with nationwide searches for eviction, criminal, and sex offender background checks.
Unlike products that involve complicated integration, Instant Apply only requires a tenant’s email address, from which Zumper handles the entire process of payment and rental application generation. Furthermore, rental professionals can charge any fee they wish. If, for example, a landlord typically covers all costs, they can even charge no fee to the tenant.
“Instant Apply creates the first ever end-to-end application and screening model”, Zumper’s CEO Anthemos Georgiades commented. “While renters enjoy the benefits of a faster application, landlords now have the easiest way to securely, and comprehensively, screen prospective tenants. We have reduced the average response time for documents from days to minutes.”
The suite further adds to Zumper’s robust product offerings for both sides of the rental transaction. Zumper currently offers free apartment and house marketing for every US building, property manager and landlord, with over 600,000 listings currently active on the site. Rental professionals can post rental listings at no charge via the Zumper Pro platform. Additionally, Zumper maintains strong mobile reach with over 70% of the millions of renters on the site sending messages through mobile, via the company’s best in class iOS and Android apps.
