When landlords need to find renters for their investment properties, they call me to list those properties so they can find prospective renters without any hassle.  Sometimes they ask me to help them screen those rental applications.  As a Realtor, it is not ethical for me to screen the applicants, only to present them to the landlord.  The rental decision has to be that of  the landlord.  However, if you are a landlord and have rental applications you need to screen before renting your property, there is a company that might be able to help you.  I point my investor clients to Nextstep Tenant Screening located in Katy, Texas.  This is a company that offers:

  • Equifax Reports
  • Fico Scores
  • Nationwide Criminal
  • Nationwide Eviction
  • SSN Validation

They are members of Experian, Trans Union, and Equifax.  If you need help screening for your rental properties you can contact them by email at sales@nextstep-online.net or 800.516.0734.
