Nesbitt Realty doesn’t “sell” rental homes. We market properties to prospective renters moving to Northern Virginia to spot the best possible renter. How do you find the right tenant for your rental in Alexandria? Verifying the claims of applicants is one of the most vital chores of every management company in 22303 in Fairfax County.
Nesbitt examines the applicant’s past behavior. With that in mind, Nesbitt Realty and Management assumes the possible renter’s future behavior will be similar. The possible tenant should demonstrate a history of being a trustworthy, stable lessee while at the same time having the income and debt-ratio to manage rent. Our background checking process is founded on several basic tactics including:
- Criminal Record & Evictions – Nesbitt Realty knows it’s crucial to know the criminal and public court records of the applicant on every rental residence in 22303. Investors should be aware that nearly all other property managers do not look at court records.
- Income Verification – Our family-run real estate business confirms job status, prospects for continued employment, salary and job title. 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.
- Tenant Screening – Nesbitt Realty & Management 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.
If accepted, the applicant’s in-processing includes a lease, lease signing, collecting pro-rated rent, and providing the lessee with a copy of any association documents needed for disclosure and instruction on rules and regulations associated with the rental and community.
