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

What does a property manager do?

The property manager’s primary role is to interface directly with applicants, tenants, and maintenance people. A good property manager saves you time, hassle, and worry by having your property producing income while maintaining the value of your investment. The property manager handles:

  • the marketing of your rental,
  • the collection of rent in a timely fashion,
  • the maintenance of a record of all income and expenses,
  • the overseeing of maintenance and repair issues,
  • the response to tenant complaints,
  • the knowledge of when to draw the line,
  • and even the pursuance of evictions.
