Member Benefits

ARPOLA is dedicated to bringing landlords resources, education, and exclusive member benefits. We know firsthand the challenges that come with owning rental properties, which is why we have teamed up with National companies to bring you discounts and offers that will help you run a successful business.

ARPOLA has teamed up with JCPenney Commercial to give Real Estate Investors one more way to save money and grow a successful business. As a member of ARPOLA, you can save in-store and online at on home staging furnishings, window treatments, power tools, uniforms and more with our member discount program card. With this incredible member discount, your business budget will stretch farther as you rehab, update and/or stage your properties.

If you want to maximize your rental profit and decrease vacancy time between tenants or sell your rehabbed property for top dollar, staging the property is a great strategy. Creating a space that feels clean and comfortable helps future tenants or buyers feel as though the space is one they can see themselves living in. Putting a little bit of extra time and money into the staging process can be the key between whether they pick your property or another one on their list.

JCPenney offers a variety of beautiful home furnishings that will allow you to implement this strategy for a fraction of the price you would pay elsewhere. Plus, with your ARPOLA Membership, you will be able to save an addition 30-60% on all eligible online and in-store orders, making the profit margins on your properties even greater.

RentProtect is excited about our new industry partner affiliation with ARPOLA. For the past 12 years Investigative Screening has focused on taking an investigative look into applicant’s past.
In short, rather than wrongly relying on databases that often give inadequate or false responses, we perform a comprehensive nationwide in-depth search using Private Investigators than.

We believe you simply cannot take the hands-on, human element away from proper screening practices. Many instant tenant screening products count on the landlords to perform backgrounds, even though they are often not aware or do not have the tools to properly make informed decisions.

Below is a list of frequently asked questions:

How much does your service cost?
Our standard fee is $35 per applicant. We have offered ARPOLA members a discounted rate of $28 per applicant.

Is your product available nationwide?
Yes, it is available nationwide. Our product uses resources in all 50 states and tracks where you applicant has lived. We then extensively search the court for records pursuant to your applicant.

What is included in your search?

  • The proper identification of your applicant. Did they misspell or change useful information that would alter our search.
  • Full Credit report (if you qualify) or Sure Decision Product which will help you analyze your applicant fairly and recommend a decision of Approved, Conditional, or Declined.
  • An easy to read and understand Criminal Record report
  • Eviction Data
  • Adverse Action letters for those that do not qualify
  • Email notification when investigation is done. Turn around time is 4 to 6 business hours. Our investigators are on Mountain Time. We believe instant results are nice in theory but miss valuable records that could ultimately affect your investments.
  • Move in Welcome Letter
  • Resident Quality Index
  • Electronic Applications

Does it matter if I have 1 rental or 100 rentals?
No, our system has been built for the largest management companies down to the person who just owns one.
