RentGrow’s Tenant Screening Solution

ScreeningWorks, a new Web-based tenant screening solution for independent rental owners (IROs) and managers from RentGrow Inc offers access to comprehensive and affordable background screening that improves their decision-making process for finding the most qualified tenants.A recent national survey of IROs shows a sharp decline in the quality of rental applicants over the last few years, underscoring the need for more comprehensive background screening, according to RentGrow.
