Renter Profile

We’ve been listening to Properly’s users who have provided valuable feedback and suggestions for what they want as next features.  We put on our product development hats and set off on creating new solutions that will continue to make our users’ lives easier.

A pain-point we frequently heard from renters is that the landlord must provide an application link before renters can submit rental applications. This required the landlord to take the initiative. Our renters wanted the option to submit their applications even if a landlord is not a Properly user.

We agreed fully and we’ve launched a new feature that allows renters to share rental applications to any landlord at any time.

YETInvesting’s Experience with Using Properly

Find Tenants

Find Tenants

One of Properly’s users is a blogger who runs YETInvesting, a personal finance blog where she writes about her experiences with real estate investing, being a landlord, and other financial topics.

She recently purchased 4 rental properties, completed a series of renovations, and used Properly to manage her application and screening processes. All 4 units were filled with quality tenants within a week!

YETInvesting published a detailed article about the experience of using Properly to find tenants. Check it out!

All the important info

Rental history, employment, references, and financials – only the stuff that matters.


Fill out your renter profile once and update only when you need to. When you apply to a rental listing, your application is automatically populated with your information. No more filling out the same things over and over again!

Share with landlords

As soon as you submit an application, Properly automatically notifies the landlord who can instantly review your qualifications so you can receive a prompt decision.

Secure and works on any device

Your data is encrypted at all times. Applications can be filled out, submitted and reviewed on all computers, phones, and tablets.

Screening reports in real-time

Properly’s application is free. You can add an optional credit, background, and eviction report for $34.95 and have unlimited shares for 30 days. If you’re applying to multiple listings, you still only pay once!

  • Payments: Pay and collect rent, utilities, and security deposits online for free.
  • Applications: Online applications that are reusable and easy to read.
  • Screening Reports: A more secure and efficient process for running and sharing credit, background, and evictions reports.

Creating a Properly account is free. We’d love for you to try it out and let us know what you think. As we continue to improve and add new features, your feedback is invaluable towards ensuring we deliver on what our users truly want and need.

Lastly, we would like to let you know that this is just the beginning. Our promise to you is that we will not stop until we’ve made all aspects of renting easy, simple, and secure.

Thank you and we look forward to learning from you!
