Resident Screening With AI Technology

Resident Screening With AI Technology

No two property management companies are the same. What may work for one might not work for you. That’s why ResidentIQ uses artificial intelligence technology to allow you to make accurate risk decisions on borderline applicants and offset end-of-lease cost. Also, with the intelligence scoring matrix, you can make adjustments to the applicant settings at the property level. That means the software’s results are always accurate to that property’s needs. It’s resident screening for the modern age.

Predictive Scoring

A New Way of Scoring Background Checks

Rather than a black-and-white pass/fail system, ResidentIQ offers more nuanced results that allow you to make informed decisions about borderline applicants. Rather than using a basic, “rule of thumb” approach, ResidentIQ analyzes predictors of behavior that drive good rental performance. After one use, you’ll easily identify the low-risk and high-risk renters while also making an accurate risk assessment on those applicants in the middle. More than a standard background check, this predictive scoring model lets you maximize revenue while minimizing risk to determine how well an applicant will perform over the course of a lease term.

A New Way of Scoring Background Checks
Actionable Management Reports

Actionable Management Reports

With an everchanging market, it’s vital for property managers to keep their acceptance criteria dynamic. ResidentIQ makes that easy with actionable management reports. Once you sign up, you’ll be able to use the management reports to gauge the effectiveness of your acceptance criteria against NOI performance as well as market conditions. With this data, you’ll be well equipped to create customized tenant screening equation for each property and decide how to keep your standards.

Risk Analysis

Comprehensive and Accurate Risk Analysis

When it comes to accepting resident applications, “risk” can be a tricky thing to define. ResidentIQ goes beyond the standard resident credit check and instead uses a time-tested data-driven method of risk analysis. A statistical model is used to add nuance to applicants in the borderline range, allowing property managers to make informed decisions based on seasonality and market demand.

Risk Analysis

Instant Pre-Qualifications

Save Time With Instant Pre-Qualifications

One of the easiest ways to save time during the application process is with ResidentIQ’s instant pre-qualification feature. We know that the first thing property managers check is the financials. That’s why we’ve enabled instant pre-qualifications so you can narrow down the applicant pool quicker than ever. Simply set the minimum requirements for the application process. While ResidentIQ is conducting a thorough tenant background check that includes potential criminal history, you’ll be able to immediately review a prospect’s financials. With this, you’ll remove unqualified applicants from the pool so you can focus on more suitable potential renters while staying in compliance with FCRA laws, Fair Housing laws, and HUD guidelines.

Online Fraud Prevention

ID Verification Tool and Fraud Prevention

At ResidentIQ, we understand that there is a need to protect property managers from fraudulent applications. With a large pool of potential renters, it can be difficult to manually check and verify each application. Instead, eliminate the risk of renting to fraudulent applicants with ID Verification tool. It’s built into our resident screening system, so false applicants are removed quickly. ID Verification does more than just validate social security numbers or government documents. It also includes income verification, checking an applicants reported income against banking, payroll, and/or credit bureau data.
