The first step for our family business to hunt for the best-possible renter is to market your rental to prospective renters moving to Northern Virginia. But the second step is to identigy the the ideal renter. Verifying the claims of prospective renters is one of the most critical tasks of any local rental property manager in Northern Virginia.

Nesbitt Realty check outs the prospective tenant’s past behavior. With that in mind, Nesbitt Realty assumes the applicant’s future behavior will be similar. The applicant should demonstrate a history of being a stable, trustworthy tenant and at the same time meeting your financial criteria. Our background checking process is founded on several basics including:

  • Application – After the applicant visits a rental property, the agent takes an application. The application is accompanied by supporting documentation so that Nesbitt Realty can verify and look at all information included on the application. The applicant pays for the cost of the background check at the time of application.
  • Criminal Record & Evictions – Nesbitt Realty knows it's crucial to know the criminal and public court records of the applicant on every rental in 22303 in Fairfax County. Landlords should be aware that many other management companys do not check out court records.
  • Income Verification – Our local business establishes prospects for continued employment, job title, salary and job status. Depending upon the prospective renter's debt load, a tenant needs to earn not less than 3 to 4 times the monthly rent in gross income to qualify for rental.

If accepted, the applicant’s in-processing includes a lease, lease signing, collecting pro-rated rent, and providing the tenant with a copy of any association documents needed for disclosure and instruction on rules and regulations associated with the rental and community.

Born and raised in Centreville, VA. Went off to college at James Madison University where I graduated with a Bachelor of Science degree. After college I worked in Intellectual Property for four years. Shortly after graduating college I purchased and managed my own rental property. In this experience I found my passion for real estate. I soon decided to turn this passion into a career, and I haven't looked back since. Currently living in the city of Falls Church. When I'm not advancing my real estate experience I like to go golfing, travel to Nationals Park for a baseball game, and watch movies.
