What we look for in Cross Junction tenants
In Cross Junction, our management staff prefers to deal with good tenants. Here are some of the traits we look for.
- An ideal renter pays the rent on time every month. This means paying on or before the first, rather than at 5 pm on the 5th.
- A good tenant is trustworthy. A desirable tenant does not sneak in a co-renter or pet.
- A great tenant is reasonably clean. A trustworthy renter does not bring pests like rodents and bugs.
- A desirable renter does not damage systems.
- A desirable tenant is courteous and pleasant to work with. A good renter knows the difference between a property manager and a hotel concierge.
- A reliable tenant doesn't disturb neighbors.
- An ideal tenant complains when appropriate. tenants that don't report maintenance issues cost landlords money and cause issues for property managers.
- An ideal renter doesn't complain when it's not appropriate. This means that a good tenant doesn't demand to upgrade functioning systems. A desirable renter doesn't expect more than the lease provides. A great renter doesn't complain that an appliance doesn't work when the tenant doesn't know how to operate the appliance.
- A great tenant does not smoke in the home.
- A great renter is looking for a lease that is as long as the landlord wants to rent the rental.
So this is what we're looking for in a tenant, but how do we find tenants who measure up to this standard? Experience has taught us that tardy renters can appear as polite, nicely-dress, well educated people with good jobs. We have a nose for sniffing out bad renters.
Our Five Step Process
Fair Housing Laws and our conscience dictates that we do not judge potential tenants in Cross Junction based upon appearance. Experience has taught us that appearances can be very decieving. We do however assess potential renters based upon their track record and their actions. If a applicant is difficult with our staff from the start, they will probably be difficult as tenants. If a n applicant is caught fabricating facts, we will expect them to be untrustworthy as a tenant. If a person has a problem finding certified fundsfor background fees and the first month of rent, we can expect that same potential tenant will have difficulty while they are in the rental.
But even if every statement initially is promising we still vet each person with a complete background check. Every applicant and occupant must provide a government-issue photo identification. From there, as rental we start our vetting process.

"I am by nature a trusting person, but this business has taught me to verify every statement that a tenant makes. Scammers and bad tenants can sometimes give every appearance of being trustworthy and upright people. We never cut corners on background checks." ~ Will Nesbitt
I like tenants that pay on time. Late paying tenants cause extra work and unnecessary stress for landlords and property managers. ~ Julie Nesbitt
