Nesbitt Realty & Management doesn’t “sell” homes. We market rentals to the widest possible audience to discover a good renter. How do you find the best renter for your rental in Northern Virginia? Investigating applicants is one of the most necessary duties of any market-savvy rental management company in 22301 in Alexandria.
Our family real estate company examines the applicant’s past behavior. With that in mind, our team assumes the potential lessee’s future behavior will be the same. The possible renter should demonstrate a history of being a solid, reliable renter and at the same time meeting our financial criteria. Our background checking process is founded on several basic tactics including:
- Criminal Record & Evictions – Nesbitt Realty sees it’s vital to know the criminal and public court records of the possible lessee on every rental in Alexandria. Owners should be aware that nearly all other rental managers do not scrutinize court records.
- Income Verification – Nesbitt establishes salary, job title, job status and prospects for continued employment. Depending upon the applicant’s debt load, a tenant needs to earn at least 3 to 4 times the monthly rent in gross income to qualify for a rental.
- Application – After the applicant views a rental, the agent takes an application. The application is accompanied by supporting documentation so that Nesbitt Realty and Management can verify and look at all information included on the application. The prospective renter pays for the cost of the background check at the time of application.
If accepted, the possible lessee’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 investment detached and community.
