Credit History

Good great is a good indicator, but is no guarantee of a good tenant. Good credit history indicates that someone pays bills on time and knows how to manage their finances. Renters usually have worse credit than homeowners / landlords.  Bad credit is not an absolute disqualifier. There are perfectly valid reasons why some people have bad credit and some of those people with bad credit can be outstanding tenants.

A credit history check is not the beginning or end but it is a good place to start to get a picture of whom you're dealing with.

 

Property Management Basics

Marketing

Nesbitt Realty’s website has one of the largest Internet footprints of any real estate site in Northern Virginia.  In addition, our agents are skilled at leveraging MLS exposure, Internet articles, local print media, and more. By using professional photography, video updates, maps, and other technological advancements, we ensure that buyers and renters have the information that they need to make an informed decision about your property.

Daily Landlord Responsibilities

Nesbitt Realty provides and maintains a level of separation between the landlord and tenant so that we are able to assure you that business matters are always handled in a business-like fashion.  Nesbitt Realty has systems in place to handle emergency repairs and we are capable of finding the right provider at the right price to keep your investment in top shape.

Property Upkeep

Nesbitt Realty has a list of vendors who has proven to be reliable with a reasonable price to handle problematic situations when they arise. We are also willing to work with contractors, handymen, and other providers who are recommended by the landlord. Property maintenance is never a profit center for us.

Communication

We are always available to pick up the phone. We respond to all emails in a timely fashion.

Rent Collection Service

We expect tenants to pay on time and we hold them accountable for late payments. We process rents quickly so that landlords get paid quickly. We serve late payment notices and eviction notices, for instance,  to maintain orderly and regular rental income, when necessary. Learn more about us now!
