Landlords often use free classified sites like CraigsList or BackPage to post rental ads. The only problem is that classified sites are infamous for being full of scammers. The VerticalRent Trusted Landlord Seal ensures potential renters that the landlord's rental ads are legitimate. Landlords are using VerticalRent to build trust instantly on online classified sites by using VerticalRent to post rental ads, accept rental applications, run credit checks, and move-in tenants. "Thousands of landlords continue to trust VerticalRent for our tenant screening services, which are now directly integrated into our online rental ads," adds Matt Angerer, COO and Co-Founder of VerticalCloud.
The VerticalRent Trusted Landlord Seal drives more inquiries for landlords posting ads to free classified sites like CraigsList or Backpage. "The internet is full of scammers these days. Landlord's need to build trust with the tenants in your community and that starts with our Seal of Trust," adds Angerer.
In order to use VerticalRent's advanced tenant screening services, landlords are required to verify their identify through a series of random questions based on their credit profile. They are also required to certify themselves as legitimate landlords with permissable purpose to accept a rental application and a credit report. Once certified as a trusted landlord, the landlord's rental ads created within VerticalRent include the Seal of Trust. The VerticalRent Trusted Landlord Seal also allows renters to click and verify your legitimacy.
A Landlord can partake in the Trusted Seal program by enrolling in the VerticalRent Premium Subscription plan at $4.95 per month -- allowing them to keep their Trusted Landlord Seal active and enjoy a number of additional features like full credit reports, eviction and criminal reports, and online rent collection. "Digital lease documents, online rental ads, and no-cost online rent payments make VerticalRent the best tenant screening service for independent landlords and real estate professionals," concludes Angerer.
