Benefits for Renters
Knowing what is being reported about you to landlords is essential in getting approved for the home you want. Decisions are often based on how your credit report looks and what type of criminal and eviction records you may have – understand what landlords are seeing so you know whether you will meet their criteria.
View Your Report First
Landlords generally have a fixed list of what they want to see (or not see) on a renter’s background check. Knowing what will show up in your tenant screening report is an excellent way to understand whether you will be approved before applying for a property. Choose to only share your report with a landlord you are more likely to be approved by.
Improve Your Credit Score
The ApplyConnect® report is considered a ‘soft inquiry’ so it will not have any impact on lowering your credit score. It can actually help alert you to negative items on your report that are hurting your score, allowing you to proactively fix them.
Protect Your Identity
Identity theft is one of the fastest growing threats in the United States. ApplyConnect® is certified safe by an Experian Independent 3rd Party Assessment annually. Your data is encrypted and the credit report never displays your SSN or tradeline account numbers.
Take Back Control!
A background check is a report about your past that will be used to determine your present. You should be more involved in understanding how landlords are going to view you based on this information. Spend your time applying for properties with the confidence that you are the best applicant for the home! After move-in, ask your landlord about ApplyConnect®'s online rent payment tool. This enables you to send your rent to your landlord online, where you may be. No more checks needed, and you can split payments between roommates easily to pay separately. The best part about ApplyConnect is that it helps you find the home of your dreams more easily by helping you apply to multiple properties with one purchase! The Apply Three for $39.95 will allow you to apply for up to 3 properties with a single purchase.

"The process was very easy to follow. Data seems to be safe, secure, and I felt like my privacy was important. Now that I'm all moved in, I'm very happy and would not hesitate to use the service again."

"I found the ApplyConnect website to be a quick and easy way to apply for apartment rentals online. It was great to not have to use the paper forms at the rental site - a process that I find time consuming and heinously insecure. Unfortunately, some of the fields are not accessible for mobile users, but the desktop site was fabulous."Apply Now!
