Check with past landlords
This is usually the slowest part of the process because former landlords are not always quick to respond. Part of the process of checking with past landlords is verifying that the phone number provided is actually the landlord's phone. Then we need to verify that the person who claims to be the landlord actually owns the property that the applicant claimed to have rented. Once we've done all this, we talk to the landlord and ask them a series of questions about the applicant. Landlords can be very informative, especially in off-the-record conversations. This is an important window into understanding what sort of applicant we are dealing with.
Our Five Step Process
Property Management Basics
You will be pleased to know that Nesbitt Realty is trusted by both local, out-of-state, and foreign property owners. Real estate investors and trusts hire us, but most of our clients are everyday people from all walks of life. They simply need some assistance with managing their property. While we do have some wealthy clients who have no mortgages on their properties, the majority of our clients are known as “mortgage landlords”. “Mortgage landlords” need rental income in order to pay off mortgages. A number of these homeowners are the average people and this is the single largest investment interest that they have committed to in their lives.
