New Rental Option For Tenants

apt_for_rentZillow, the online Real Estate marketplace, has created a new program for landlords called the Community Pillar. Once you have filled out your landlord profile, a Community Pillar agrees to modify their standard tenant screening process in order to help applicants with potential rental barriers—such as low incomes, spotty credit scores, unemployment, or lack of housing references—be able to obtain housing. This program is a great opportunity for homeless and low-income people that are struggling to find homes. Tenants in need of housing can search the site and will get a bit more relaxed application and screening process. This service might not be the type of program that all landlords are able to offer, but for those with homes that might fit the needs to this demographic, it can open a lot of doors for people in need. Zillow has a large network of homes and strong brand that can possibly help some people that need it most.
