I wish that I had an all in one package, but I doubt that one really exists.

I use a complex variety of systems, and it seems to change every year a bit as the technology changes and the tenants seem to be ever moving in where they look for homes.

Craigslist, realbird, MLS for marketing.  Covers ALL the bases and all the major rental portals.

For screening, I just go to the county court website and run their name myself.  Free out here.  They run their own credit and provide a print out with the application.

We don't do rentals any longer. I did use several tenant prospect screening siutes and they all seemed to work as intended and the tenant prospects paid the sites directly and authorized the sharing of their information with us.

I manage nearly 300 rentals so I use Propertyware and the built-in marketing and screening platform. It's been a huge time-saver but I wouldn't recommend it unless you have 50+ rentals.

As a private Landlord with less than 20 units, spreadsheets work just fine and you can market your rentals on Zillow and the local facebook groups.

We use Zillow and our website. For screening there is no great one so we do it in pieces, using screening through our Rent Manager software supplementing by hand.

Landlord credit search. Most submit a credit report so it is a matter of validating they had no prior tenant eviction record.

In Silicon Valley it is homogeneous. Work at Google 3 years making $1x0K, FICO 780, Ivy league drive a Prius.  The ones in sales (e.g. $400-500K) are most problematic and often late with rent. 

In CA realtors are not supposed to handle property management. Broker only with special credential and property manager E&O.

Hire it out to third parties who specialize in screening.  It is not worth the headache.  Marketing is done the same as with any listing.

I would have to ask my head of property management and we do hundreds of rentals so it is very expensive. For years I find that on a smaller basis Zillow is absolutlely the best.

I only rent out personal property and use 3rd party systems for the background checks. I send the applicants there and receive the report from them. Marketing is done just as any listing is done - we typically don't have any trouble renting out our properties.

I am not a landlord and use nothing. I don't handle rentals in general. And as far as I know my clients who buy investment properties with me either manage them on their own without a lot of software or have a property manager do it for them.
