Wondering if anyone is using a VA etc to advertise and pre-screen applicants? I need help with it and would appreciate any referrals and/or recommendations.

Kevin,

I use a retired accountant who works from his home (coincidentally lives on my same street!) and loves to put numbers and data on paper. He posts each app and it's progress on Google Docs so we can also add info. We can quickly search that spreadsheet for former applicants.

I pay $3 per task

-court records search

-paystub/ employment verfication

-call/ fax LLs

-pull credit report

He has my written criteria so he stops when things look bad.

Has worked well for years.

BRAD

Thanks Brad. Do you do all of this after the unit is shown and they submit an app? My issue is I'll get 80+ "I'm Interested" inquiries and can't juggle through them all to find a good 5 to do showings for. --98.237.xx.xx

The services that only get paid to place a tenant will not waste time tying to find the best fit. I you pay them a fee per applicant, you will have better results. --47.156.xx.xx

I have a VA who does initial information gathering (run prospects name through local court system, facebook etc).. He is not the brightest, sometimes I have 3 different vacancies and he would mix up the response. (I have a jotform to gather pre-qualify info) --71.232.xxx.xxx

My goal in phone screening is to weed out everyone who is not qualified, so that I get very few applications for a vacancy. This usually results in only one or two but those are very well-qualified applicants. I thus only have to process one, possibly two, applications.

A good background check package would immediately return credit report, eviction report, and criminal record report. I thus don't find it necessary to outsource 1-2 hours of work per vacancy. --50.4.xxx.x
