Leasely helps property owners find tenants so they can fill vacancies and start profiting. Leasely builds the application for the user. The user can then link to the application from any online rental property listing they post. Interested parties can fill out the form and submit it through Leasely. The property owner doesn’t have to do anything but wait for the applications to arrive and begin reading through them. Users can choose to reject or accept applicants who will receive an instant notification when they do. In the future, Leasely will also perform background and credit checks for the property owner, further simplifying the screening process. Leasely can help any property owner look like a professional while reducing the amount of work they must do to find a good tenant.Show more screenshots »
Leasely was introduced in 2010 as a better way for users to find tenants and begin profiting from their properties. The Leasely team includes Eric Lui, Rodrigo Guzman and Walter Chen. Liu currently owns and manages properties in Chicago and attended chemistry and liberal arts classes at the University of Texas. Guzman is a web developer focused on Django and Python. He attended Northwestern University. Chen is an attorney who studied math and computer science at Cornell University.
Leasely offers a valuable service that few others provide to users. Property owners can generate a professional, well organized application form for potential tenants. Leasely goes even further by giving property owners a way to allow applicants to submit the form to them online. All the property owner has to do is link the form to their rental listings and wait for applicants to submit their information.
The Leasely website welcomes property owners with a very professional design. The color scheme stays calm with white and blue as the primary focus. The site is also very well organized with no distracting clutter. Applications and submitted information is very easy to sort through, using basic columns. Users with minimal computer experience can easily learn how to get around Leasely.
Visitors to Leasely can register for an account by clicking on the white “Sign Up” link at the top, right hand corner of the homepage. The landlord registration form requires a first and last name, email address and password. By submitting the information and clicking the white “Create my account” button, the user agrees to the Leasely terms of service. As soon as the user submits their information, they can begin creating online applications for potential tenants.
Anyone can stop by the Leasely website and create an account for free. There are no subscription fees or other charges required for signing up or building an application. The site suggests a few potential additions to be made in the future, and these will most likely come at a price (although that is not officially confirmed). Functions such as credit and background checks, criminal checks, and eviction checks are planned for the future of Leasely. For now, the existing features are available to everyone for free.
Landlords who are independent or work as a small business can really appreciate Leasely. The site allows users to create a professional looking tenant application. Future features look promising and the current list of functions give users better control over managing applicant information.
