Kleard launches self-touring tech for rentals

Kleard's third app for both iOS and Android clears the way for landlords to allow aspiring tenants to tour rental listings unaccompanied


Kleard is a personal identification software app that ensures prospective buyers are who they say they are before being granted access to a home for sale or meeting an agent for the first time. It’s also used for open houses.

When partnered with a smart lock, the Kleard Now version of the technology allows people to tour homes without an agent present. After verification, the individual is given the lock code. The company does not, in any way, cut out agents.

In December, Kleard will be launching a new app, Kleard Rentals, for the rental market.

According to an email to Inman from company founder, Jonathan Martis, the new software “is the app landlords and property managers will use to manage their properties for self tours. The difference will be the questions landlords and property managers care about.”
