I used Rentspree to apply for a rental space. I like the idea, but I found the application process annoying because the website is not well designed. it did not allow for the possibility that an applicant's data does not fit into its preconceptions of what data is needed. I am self-employed, and as I recall it asked if I am employed, retired or unemployed. Of course, out of those options the only one that fits is employed, even if I am self-employed, but then it asked for my supervisor name and number, and that is required data, so I put in "Self employed" and a string of zeroes for the phone number. Also, it asked for the name of my supervisor for the previous job I worked at, over 10 years ago, also required information. I just put in "I don't remember" and a string of zeroes.
I have never lived outside the US, but I notice that the website does not allow for previous addresses or phone numbers that are outside the country, and the info is required. Overall the website feels like it was designed by people who have never collected data from real people before with all the variations that might happen.
This seems to be a new service, and I don't know what its business model is. I am concerned that my application data is being sold to third parties and all the people whose data they asked for will be getting lots more spam or be targeted for scams.

It was my very first time using RentSpree. We're a single property landlord; which means that the process can be overwhelming and even daunting, especially since we're not renting our property out every year. RentSpree was easy to register to use. We received the results back in less than 24 hours; and the process went so smoothly, which makes the use of RentSpree to be too good to be true. When the time comes, I will definitely consider/use RentSpree again.

wish I would have thought of it
Review by Dhillon1 year ago
Overall I think its great!. A couple things I'd like to be able to change; once I set the criteria for additional docs and reference check I can't go back and undo or change emails for instance if an email was incorrectly written. And as an agent it would be great when other agents are representing their clients to be able to have the agents name as reference. Other than that I am really liking it. It simplifies things and looks professional.
Also would like to know how the verification works for reference checks. what do they ask of the reference?

I didn't see where I can access rental acceptance or denial letters automatically. Does this service offer this?

I personally had no problem with the product. However, my clients had a tough time working through the application process. They did not have access to a computer with internet and ran into issues while trying to complete the report from their mobile device. Will definitely use this service again, and try to encourage clients to use a computer.

So far I have been very pleased with RentSpree. The reports are clear and easy to understand. The detail is impeccable. And, it has streamlined the leasing process. I am currently considering paying for the Pro version because of my satisfaction with the free version.

Worked for two out of the three tenant applicants. One applicant had the sight kick him out as he was submitting his application stating that it didn't have enough information on him. He then called and submitted his CDL and bank statement and supposedly it is supposed to work for him now.

Just signed up. My first experience was quick and easy and provided all the details I was looking for as a landlord. I’ll use them again. My tenants liked it too and the cost was reasonable to the tenant.

Rentspree reported information in my rental case that was erroneous and in some cases information that was not even me. They will tell you that the information comes directly from Transunion (one of the largest credit reporting agencies in the country) but after doing 5 minutes of research I found that this was a total lie.
As it regards criminal back ground checks - if they are not requesting this information from state or federal police more than likely the information is erroneous or is flat out incorrect or not "you".
If their is an adverse action as a result of your rentspree application expect to only hear one thing from your realtor and that is "they turned you down".
A professional realtor will take the time to go over the report with you just to make certain that the information within the report is in fact "YOU"!!! With rentspree realtors are quick to use the results of the rentspree application to base their decision on whether or not to rent and throw it off on the home owner they are representing by saying "the home owner made the decision based on the report".

It is great website! Very helpful staff. Just one request when client receive the application from the Realtor if they can see the realtor's profile that would be awesome.

I went through a number of apartment rentals with other 2 older daughters in New York City. Most unpleasant! This was quick and painless. Now lets hope my youngest daughter gets the apartment!!
