The Roofstock Rental Property Certification Process Explained

We hope you enjoyed our introduction to the Roofstock marketplace, and that you’ve contacted one of our Advisors. Today we’re going to dig into our proprietary certification process, and what it means for investors.

At Roofstock, we believe in full transparency and when investing in Single-Family Rentals. We want you to have access to all of the tools we would use if we were investing ourselves (well, truth be told, we are also Roofstock marketplace investors).

Before listing a property on the Roofstock marketplace, the property must pass a rigorous vetting and review process, which comprises a thorough multi-point review of all aspects of the property.  So, what is behind our rental property certification?
