The first step for our real estate brokerage to spot a dependable renter is to market your rental to the most people possible. But the second step is to identigy the the most suitable lessee. Investigating possible tenants is one of the most essential charges of every rental manager in 22201.
Nesbitt scrutinizes the applicant’s past behavior. With that in mind, Nesbitt Realty assumes the applicant’s future behavior will be the same or similar. The applicant should demonstrate a history of being a stable, stable lessee while having the income and debt-ratio to manage rent. Our background checking process is founded on several hard truths including:
- Income Verification – Our tiny real estate business checks and confirms prospects for continued employment, job status, salary and job title. Depending upon the potential renter's debt load, a tenant needs to earn at least 3 to 4 times the monthly rent in gross income to qualify for rental.
- Tenant Screening – Nesbitt Realty screens tenants with a combination of checking credit history, background, eviction and criminal screening services as well as our own efforts to collect information needed to confirm and process the application.
- Landlord Reference – Nesbitt Realty & Management utilizes public information, tax records and other research and verification to ensure that we're talking to actual landlord about actual rental history of the prospective lessee.
If accepted, the prospective renter’s in-processing includes a lease, lease signing, collecting pro-rated rent, and providing the renter with a copy of any association documents needed for disclosure and instruction on rules and regulations associated with the rental and community.
