You finally have a few properties under your belt and now you’re ready to rent them out! You’re excited right! You should be! I was excited as well when I bought my first property and rented it out. However, I didn’t know the proper way to screen tenants, nor did I have the proper tools! It ended up being a disaster for me and the property!
You know the saying “hindsight is 20-20″, well in my property management/rental experience it was just that! I wish I knew more then, what I know now.
This picture was actually me not long ago!
Can you relate?
If we don’t screen tenants properly, then we open the doors for a potential disaster.
So Property Managers, here’s how you can avoid having this face!
When choosing a property management solution make sure you also inquire about some type of tenant screening. In many cases this will save you headaches in the long run. As you may experience less turn-over in your properties and less problems with your tenants.
Point2 Property Manager has partnered up with two of the best Tenant Screening services in the business, Credit Retriever and ScreeningWorks. We’ve gotten much feedback from customers stating how the screening process has not only given them lighting fast results, but how it’s helped their property management business to be more successful when it comes to having good responsible tenants.
Trust me, you definitely want to know if you have tenants with a criminal background or with multiple evictions following them!
Not using a tenant screening service, then how do you screen tenants?
Please share! We would love to hear about what’s working for you!
