The first step for our business to identify a dependable tenant is to market your investment place to prospective renters moving to Northern Virginia. But the second step is to identigy the the perfect renter. Vetting applicants is one of the most critical tasks of any competant rental manager in 22312 in Alexandria.
Nesbitt Realty check outs the applicant’s past behavior. With that in mind, our family real estate business assumes the applicant’s future behavior will be the same. The applicant should demonstrate a history of being a solid, top renter and meeting your financial criteria. Our background checking process is founded on several conventions including:
- Income Verification – Nesbitt Realty & Management establishes salary, job title, prospects for continued employment and job status. Depending upon the possible renter's debt load, a tenant needs to earn a minimum of 3 to 4 times the monthly rent in gross income to qualify for rental.
- Landlord Reference – Nesbitt utilizes public information, tax records and other research and verification to ensure that we're talking to actual owner about actual rental history of the applicant.
- Criminal Record & Evictions – Our award-winning real estate brokerage sees it's vital to know the criminal and public court records of the applicant on every investment property in Northern Virginia. Real Estate Owners should be aware that most other management companys do not scrutinize court records.
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 rental property and community.
