Hi there.

Thinking about making the switch from Casalova to Zora?

We want to make the decision as easy as possible so we’ve put together some info to help you pick the product that’s best for you.

Below you’ll find information comparing Zora with Casalova, including information on features and benefits of both platforms.

Do you need a tool or a Realtor?

We wanted to provide landlords and property managers with the tools that they needed to run their business. We help you find and keep great tenants.

Casalova was designed for landlords with one or two units, who own properties in big cities. They’re still using the traditional broker/agent model which is still common in large metropolitan areas.

Basically, how Casalova works is that they come and take photos of your property, post it on all the large listing sites, have an agent show your property and perform a credit check for you.

How much does it cost you for their services? A month’s rent. That’s a whopping $1,600 - $2,000 where they operate. There goes any extra cash flow from your investment. You might still be able to make your monthly mortgage payment but you’re definitely not putting any cash in your pocket.

Screening your Tenants

We started Zora to scratch our own itch. All of our founders have been property managers or landlords at some point.

Time and time again we went through the traditional screening process of references, background checks and credit checks. And time and time again, we ended up with bad tenants. No matter how good they looked on paper bad tenants kept on sneaking through.

That’s why we created the Z score. The Z score looks at 80 different socioeconomic and demographic variables to determine how risky an applicant really is. We’ve been able to lower our landlord’s default rates by 48%.

The average default rate in the U.S. is approximately 10%. That is on average 1 out of every 10 tenants will default on their rent. On average this will cost you up to $5,000 dollars. What this means for you is that using Zora and the Z score we’ll be able to save you $2,500 on average compared to using a company that relies on the credit check alone.
