What can you use the app for?

Zakits helps landlords rent out their properties quickly, easily and with less paper waste. The application helps property owners with listings on the site. The user can add details about the property and can upload images. Zakits supplies an embedded Google Map with driving directions to the location, a photo slide show and a button so viewers can quickly access the application. Zakits also provides users with code to build an attractive Craigslist ad. Users can also generate a PDF flier for their property to post on bulletin boards in their neighborhood. The landlord can accept applications online through Zakits and accept their payments via Paypal. Users can sign electronic lease agreements and landlords can store their documents and photos online using Zakits. The application automatically generates an application for the user, but provides a feature that enables users to add custom questions or to delete questions so the form is tailored to their needs.

What is the history and popularity of the app?

Zakits was created to give landlords a better way to manage and rent their properties. Many real estate websites are available that allow the user to post property listings. Zakits gives users a place to build an attractive online advertisement and includes numerous additional features. Today, Zakits provides landlords with a large selection of helpful tools to list and rent their properties.

What are the differences to other apps?

Zakits does many things that the standard real estate website does not. Users can generate an application as soon as they have listed their property on Zakits. The form includes customizable questions that give the user total control over the information they require for their rentals. Zakits has also integrated Paypal so the user can accept deposits and payments online.

How does the web app look and feel to use?

The Zakits website has a colorful, stylish appearance that is balanced by the pure white background and solid dark header. Color icons explain the site on the homepage. Each property listing includes embedded Google Maps as well as well-organized information that the visitor can easily review. A green “Apply Now” button is also added to listings so the visitor can access the application. A similar version of the listing page is available in the form of code that can be posted to Craigslist.

How does the registration process work?

A new user can create a Zakits account by clicking the white “Sign Up” link in the upper, right hand corner of the homepage. The registration form asks the user for a first and last name, email address, password and optional Paypal email address (for users who would like to accept payment through Paypal). The second portion of the form asks for property details including address, city, state, zip code, rent amount, deposit amount, application fee, number of bedrooms, number of bathrooms and a brief description of the property. A note at the bottom of the form advises the user that by submitting their information they are automatically agreeing to the privacy policy and terms of service.

What does it cost to use the application?

Zakits provides an economical pricing system for users. Landlords can create an account and list their properties for free. There are no subscription fees or other charges for doing so. No premium paid membership option is currently available. Visitors can view listings for free as well, however there is a fee for submitting an application. Zakits charges users a convenience fee of around $5 for submitting applications. This amount is charged to the interested tenant and not the landlord.

Who would you recommend the application to?

Zakits is a helpful tool for landlords. Users can create a listing with as much detail as they like. The application also makes it easy to advertise other ways, such as through Craigslist or paper fliers.
