The first step for our real estate brokerage to discover the ideal renter is to market your investment unit to the widest-possible audience. But the second step is to identigy the the best-possible renter. Checking the backgrounds of applicants is one of the most essential tasks of every managing agent in 22304.
Nesbitt Realty & Management check outs the applicant’s past behavior. With that in mind, our real estate company assumes the prospective renter’s future behavior will be the same or similar. The applicant should demonstrate a history of being a solid, solid tenant while at the same time possessing the financial capacity to handle the rent. Our background checking process is founded on several conventions including:
- Landlord Reference – Nesbitt Realty utilizes public information, tax records and other research and verification to ensure that we're talking to actual property owner about actual rental history of the applicant.
- Income Verification – Our family-run business investigates job status, prospects for continued employment, job title and salary. Depending upon the potential tenant's debt load, a tenant needs to earn a minimum of 3 to 4 times the monthly rent in gross income to qualify for rental.
- Criminal Record & Evictions – Nesbitt Realty knows it's important to know the criminal and public court records of the applicant on every rental in 22304 in the City of Alexandria. Owners should be aware that most other property managers do not look at court records.
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 home and community.
