Guide to Choosing the Best Tenant Screening Service 2017 (Part 3)

When choosing the best tenant screening service, agents and landlords need to consider the ease of use for both the applicants and themselves.

In the previous 2 posts we looked at the information provided in the reports and how important it is to have comprehensive reports but not an overwhelming amount of data that can cause analysis paralysis. But, applicants that have difficulty completing an application will bail and the landlord will then get no data and possibly no applicant.

According to industry research https://www.crazyegg.com/blog/why-users-leave-a-website/ one of the top three reasons users leave a web site is when they don’t know what to do.

TenantMagic has designed an application that captures all of the information required for a comprehensive application that can be completed in less than 10 minutes. We fully realize that most people don’t read and designed the process with the minimal amount of text instructions.

Over the past 4 years we have listened to users that have called in with difficulties when completing our application. We often made changes to the application process based on their input. Today our application process is far more efficient than it was when we started and we still listen to our users’ suggestions. We feel this is a main reason why TenantMagic is the best tenant screening service.

There are times when users are challenged by technology and are intimidated by any online experience. In those cases a TenantMagic customer service representative can take their information over the phone. Another reason why TenantMagic is the best tenant screening service.

We have also worked diligently to make sure the application process is easy for agents and landlords. All an agent or owner needs to to is enter the email address of the applicant into the system and TenantMagic does the rest, including handling all customer service for the applicant during the application process.
