Tenant Turner is a startup launching out of our current class with a software platform that helps property owners and property managers quickly and easily find quality tenants to rent out their available units.

According to Tenant Turner, around half of all tenant
inquiries don’t meet a rental’s minimum requirements. That means that property managers are often distracted with phone calls, emails, and showings that end up going nowhere. Tenant Turner helps cut through the noise, by scheduling showings only with tenant prospects that meet the owner’s qualifications — while still adhering to Fair Housing regulations and other laws.

TechCrunch’s Kim-Mai Cutler wrote about how Tenant Turner works in a story today:

“Tenant Turner automatically lists properties on the top 20 listings
sits. They also pre-qualify renters by verifying their incomes, pulling
their credit reports and background checks and checking their rental
history. 

They also ask renters basic questions to filter out candidates who
don’t fit, like ones that have pets for no-pet properties. Then they
coordinate property viewings, with text and e-mail reminders. Their prices start at $119 per rental listing, gradually go lower based on the number of listing credits purchased.”
