Make your best bet: Tenant selection


Perhaps one of the most important things that property management companies do is manage the tenant acquisition and selection process. Each company has their own vetting process, and while no screening process is fool-proof, the time you take up front is well worth the effort to avoid a poor tenant selection. If you use a property manager, we've got you covered. If not, take a look through this article for some great tips on how to:

  • Abide by Fair Housing laws
  • Choose a tenant with good credit
  • Perform a criminal background check
  • Select an applicant with clean rental history
  • Trust your instincts

Tenant screening and acquisition is no time to gamble. Though the process may seem meticulous, it will have been time well spent for both you and your tenant.
