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.
Our Five Step Process
Property Management Basics
The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) states that there are a number of factors, especially financial ones, involved in the purchase and resale of a house. As a result, the public is advised to consult a real estate agent as their professionalism is a critical aspect which allows the decision-making process and the experience to be a smoother one.
The key ingredient in having a successfully positive experience in a real estate transaction is finding the right professional to assist you. While real estate agents may meet your needs, the services of a Realtor® will be even more applicable to you.
What’s the Difference Between a Real Estate Agent and a Realtor?
There are more than two million people who have earned real estate licenses. Only a small, but significant percentage of them are Realtors. Realtors, are members in good standing with the National Association of Realtors, their state association of Realtors, and a local real estate board. Realtors are held to high standards of ethical behavior, and it is mandatory that they undergo continuing education annually to remain accredited.
