Screen Tenants Quickly and Easily with from Rental Roost Inc.

Rental Roost simplifies renting for both landlords and tenants with and their new rental recommendation engine for the San Francisco Bay area at

PLEASANTON, Calif., May 15, 2013 /PRNewswire/ — Rental Roost Inc., a Pleasanton-based startup focusing on simplifying the house-hunting process, recently launched, the most efficient and user-friendly FCRA-compliant background screening website. Additionally, Rental Roost Inc. launched its proprietary rental search and recommendation engine this week for homes in the entire San Francisco Bay Area. de-mystifies an otherwise long and difficult tenant screening process by allowing landlords to begin the screening with only the tenants' contact information. The site then contacts the tenants directly to gather necessary details and complete the tenant screening report. This assures the tenants' privacy and security because sensitive information such as social security numbers will not be accessible to the landlord. Houserie's background checks are also far more comprehensive than their leading competitors, since the records are from a national database rather than only a state-based one. "Overall, initial beta users have found this experience much faster, more intuitive, and far more inexpensive than other traditional ways to get tenant background checks," said Nitin Shingate, CEO and one of the co-founders of Rental Roost, Inc. One such customer Kelley N. raves, "My favorite part is that the prospective tenant filled out the info and paid for it on their smartphone right there. I would not have rented to someone so fast but the report was great so I have a new tenant and we are both happy." uses proprietary algorithms to provide essential information that goes into finding the right home and neighborhood – factors such as how kid-friendly or pet-friendly a neighborhood is, proximity to entertainment and restaurants, and the ease of commute due to nearby public transportation. This makes house-hunting fun, easy, and incredibly efficient.
