TurboTenant is an app whose creators state makes managing your rental properties incredibly easy, by allowing a users to organize and market rental properties through their app.
How Does TurboTenant Work?
The app allows users to add photos to grab a reader's attention and then provide all the information one might need about the property. They can add various property features, too, before moving on to marketing.
You can ask your applicants all the questions you want and even conduct a credit check or background check. The system will handle everything for you so that you can track your renters all in one place.
You can post the listing across the web, including on Facebook Marketplace, Craigslist, Realtor.com, Apartment List, and more. You’ll be able to track all of the renters that express interest in one easy system.
Turbo Tenant even makes it easy for renters to find you via a third-party listing site. You can also send links directly.
As soon as you get a renter’s application, you can request a screening report and you’ll get all kinds of information about the tenant, including their criminal background, credit report - even past evictions.
You can screen tenants quickly and easily. The system even makes it possible for tenants to supply emergency contacts and to e-sign lease documents.

This company is a scam. Properties not available, prices are wrong and they keep your money. As a 20 year real estate agent I can tell you it's a shot and a miss.
Do not trust this company, renters or landlords...
This platform is 100% a scam. They allow tenants to delete their documents that you request them to upload.
They will not give a phone number for customer service and will not comply when I asked them to restore the documents to my account...
I agree with ABK, it's been great using their service, free and paid. Jamie M correction TurboTenant (TT) is "NOT" a scam! They are the middle-man so to speak, so if the other party (tenant) doesn't provide the info you need, it is not TT responsibility! Besides, if a tenant is not 100% cooperative you might want to think twice about renting to them.
No website or landlord should EVER ask customers for a copy of your ID "BEFORE" showing you a rental unit! This ISN'T safe for the consumers, nor keeping our private identity information secure until WE choose a rental unit, FIRST! THIS SITE AND LANDLORDS ARE COLLECTING/KEEPING THE CONSUMER'S INFORMATION AND PHOTOCOPIES OF OUR ID'S WITHOUT SHOWING A UNIT FIRST!!!! Someone needs to stop this practice and protect the consumers!!!
So far I have been using them for listings of apartments and it has been pretty great. You can use the messaging system to connect with the tenant, allowing for all of your correspondence in one place.
