Screening Potential Renters and Placing the Home for Rent!

Spread The Word

Promoting rental properties can take much of your time. A property manager should know exactly where to market the property and how to find good tenants. The rental property should be attractive to renters. The rental area should be clean so that applicants would consider leasing the property even for a short period of time. If the area needs repair, make sure to have it fixed before accepting another tenant or before placing it on the market.

Once you list the property for rent, provide the best pictures so that potential renters will have an idea of what the place looks like. They would be more interested if they would see pictures of the property.

Advertising the property on different sites would be helpful, you’ll get connected to a number of people and can possibly find the best tenant. Even if it needs more work because you might get lots of inquiries and talk to different applicants. It doesn’t matter, all of these will pay off once you find the perfect tenant that pays on time and takes care of your property.

Screening every tenant is important once the applicants starts coming in, Include in your listings any restrictions imposed by your local laws so that the applicants would be informed. Ever tenant should undergo a screening and they should be willing enough to participate. If they don’t do so, they might not be a good candidate.

A credit  or criminal check is important, a tenant consent is required for the credit check. It would be great to get an approval from the tenant directly, though some landlord prefers a signed authorization letter. This conduct applies if you need to submit the letter to the property manager or the landlord.

If the tenant plans to rent your property, aside from the credit and criminal check, talking to their previous landlord or landlords would also a good idea. To request for information, you may send them a letter or just talk to them over the phone. Other landlords may be skeptical in answering questions so that they do not cost the tenant their next home, just prepare a set of questions to ask once you’ve contacted them.
