The first step for us to discover a solid renter is to advertise the listing to the widest-possible audience. But the second step is to find the the best-possible renter.
Nesbitt Realty investigates the potential renter’s past behavior. With that in mind, our team assumes the potential tenant’s future behavior will be similar. The potential renter should demonstrate a history of being a honest, good renter and at the same time possessing the financial capacity to handle the rent. Our background checking process is founded on several conventions including:
- Application – After the prospective renter stop bys a rental, the agent takes an application. The application is accompanied by supporting documentation so that our local real estate brokerage can verify and examine all information included on the application. The potential renter pays for the cost of the background check at the time of application.
- Criminal Record & Evictions – Nesbitt Realty & Management knows it's vital to know the criminal and public court records of the applicant on every investment home in 22314 in the City of Alexandria. Real Estate Owners should be aware that many other rental property managers do not investigate court records.
- Income Verification – Our small real estate company verifies job status, prospects for continued employment, salary and job title. Depending upon the possible tenant's debt load, a tenant needs to earn at least 3 to 4 times the monthly rent in gross income to qualify for rental.
If accepted, the prospective tenant’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.
