Will Nesbitt: Sorting Best Lessees In Springfield From Bad Applicants

Our tiny real estate brokerage doesn't “sell” rentals. We market rentals to prospective renters moving to Northern Virginia to find the best lessee. How do you find the the best choice of lessee for your investment home in 22152 in Springfield? Investigating applicants is one of the most necessary responsibilities of every rental manager in 22152 in Springfield.

Nesbitt Realty examines the prospective lessee’s past behavior. With that in mind, our brokerage assumes the applicant’s future behavior will be the same. The potential renter should demonstrate a history of being a honest, reliable renter while at the same time having the income and debt-ratio to manage rent. Our background checking process is founded on several basics including:

  • Application – After the applicant take a closer look ats a rental, the agent takes an application. The application is accompanied by supporting documentation so that our local real estate business can verify and examine 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 potential tenant on every rental abode in Springfield. Property Owners should be aware that most other rental managers do not examine court records.
  • Credit History – The applicant's credit history informs us about the potential renter’s current and past performance as far as debts and other obligations. The prospective renter’s credit report also tells us their monthly debt and shows their previous addresses (which we compare to addresses listed on the application). An applicant must have acceptable credit to qualify.

If accepted, the prospective renter’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 investment property and community.
