Go4Rent makes leasing easy. We’ve incorporated a process that automates most of the steps while providing you with the tools you need to render a leasing decision. For most Texas markets, we pull all active lease listings from the MLS so you do not need to list your available rentals. Below is our Step-by-Step guide to processing lease applications at Go4Rent.com.
Step 1. Create your free Realtor account by clicking here.
Step 2. Update your MLS Agent Remarks/Private Remarks with, “Apply at Go4Rent.com. Applicants will complete an online lease application, upload supporting documents, and pay their application fee. Showing Realtors should create a free Go4Rent Realtor account for application status updates. Once approved, applicants will pay a $50.00 Administration Fee to Go4Rent for lease execution and commission disbursement.”
Step 3. Add your landlord to the listing. Click here for instructions.
Step 4. When an applicant applies, Go4Rent will send you and the landlord a notification (email and/or text) of a new application. On your Applications tab, you can view the application and supporting documents to ensure the applicant meets your minimum criteria. At this point the applicant has NOT been charged an application fee. If you do not think the applicant is a good fit, reject the application. An email will be sent to the applicant and their realtor.
If you wish to move forward with the application, click the Screen Now button to order the INSTANT credit, criminal, and eviction report. An email is sent to the applicant informing them of the progress of their application and thus making the application fee non-refundable. An email is also sent to Go4Rent’s Verifications Department informing them to start the process of verifying the applicant’s current income and rental history. These verifications may take 2-3 business days as they will contact the employer and landlord for completion of the verification forms. As the verifications are completed, Go4Rent will upload them into your portal and you will receive an email notification.
Step 5. Render a leasing decision. You can do this in Go4Rent on your Applications tab. An email will be sent to the applicant and the applicant’s realtor.
Just like a closing with a real estate title company and transaction coordinator, Go4Rent can write the lease, collect the move in funds, and pay the commissions. Commission disbursement is fast and the funds can be deposited into the realtor’s bank account the same day the file is closed.
Step 6. If you approve the applicant, Please complete the Lease Request form here.
Step 7. Send Go4Rent any additional documents which require a signature from the landlord or applicant. Go4Rent will send those documents for signature and email them to you once signed.
Step 8. Submit your Commission Disbursement Agreement signed by your broker.
