How do I tell the difference between application types on

There's a number of ways to reach out to a rental listed on, and now with the Request to Apply feature, you have another means of getting in touch with a property manager. 

This feature will be present on every user-submitted listing and allows you to self-report your income and credit score. This information will be sent directly to the property manager, agent or whomever is managing the listing, and it'll give them a picture of you as a tenant before applying to the rental.

If your credit score and income fits their criteria, the property manager will have a chance to email you an invitation to apply to the rental. 

Note: If you're invited, you'll have to create an account on and pay the one-time consumer report fee if you haven't done so already.
