Landlords and others who are not in property management may be shocked to learn how many people lie about their incomes on rental applications. Not only do some applicants lie about how much they make, they lie about about where they work! This has taught us to verify income for each and every applicant.
After we verify the income amount and source we compare that income to the monthly rent to make sure that the tenant can afford the place. We use industry standard practices to calculate ratios to determine if the applicant can afford existing debt obligations and still have plenty of income to cover the monthly rent.
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.
