Property manager uses online screening as part of their Yardi Voyager leasing workflow
SANTA BARBARA, CALIF., Jan. 20, 2016 — Yardi® announced today that San Francisco-based Landmark Realty uses Yardi Resident Screening™ — built into their Yardi Voyager® property management and accounting platform — to automatically select quality renters.
With high-end and lower-end properties in both the San Francisco and Albuquerque markets, Landmark Realty requires a flexible solution to identify dependable renters for both metros. They also manage a mixed portfolio of apartments in Kansas City, with a different set of rental considerations. To meet those challenges, Landmark Realty relies on Yardi Resident Screening — an automated background review system that’s built into the Yardi Voyager leasing workflow — to ensure that each applicant is compliantly screened online.
According to Larry Busgeon, controller for Landmark Realty, “For our Albuquerque properties we focus more on tenancy histories than on credit scores. In San Francisco, we prefer strong credit scores because the rents are much higher, and we also want to verify some history on those scores.” Busgeon added, “We have various property websites by demographic and use Yardi Resident Screening on every site. This ‘total package’ allows prospects to find and select units, apply online and pay the credit check fee — all seamlessly integrated our Yardi Voyager leasing workflow.”
In addition to Yardi Voyager and Yardi Resident Screening, Landmark Realty uses RentCafe® for property marketing websites, along with Yardi LeasingPad CRM™, Yardi Maintenance™, and ResidentShield® Protection Plan™.
“It is very exciting for us that Landmark Realty is using the Yardi Voyager single-stack across its business. Yardi Resident Screening will help them increase its rental revenue with more reliable and higher quality residents,” said Terri Dowen, senior vice president of sales for Yardi.
