Are you searching for tips on how to find tenants who won’t trash your rental property? If so, you’ve come to the right place!
Finding the right tenants who won’t trash your rental property is critical because, one carless tenant could be responsible for thousands of dollars in damages that will have to be repaired before you can rent your property again.
In this article, we will offer you several tips that you can use for choosing great tenants who will respect your property as their own, and not damage it.
The first way to avoid renting to tenants who will ultimately damage your property is to price your property appropriately.
This means that you should work with a local property manager who knows the rental market and will price your rental correctly. At GoldenWest Management, we will set the correct rent for your property while making sure that it’s renting for top dollar.
Tip #2 – Verify Income Sources
Another way to avoid renting to tenants who may damage your rental property is to verify your tenant’s income source.
Verifying their income will give you peace of mind that they can pay the monthly rent, and likely be able to keep the property in great condition.
Tip #3 – Thoroughly Screen Every Tenant
Last of all, but most important, don’t skimp on tenant screening! This is by far one of the most important parts of renting to tenants because when you screen tenants, you can know what’s really going on in their lives, especially if they have a criminal history, bad credit, debts, or the inability in the past to pay their rent on time.
Besides thoroughly screening tenants, you should also have an ironclad lease that outlines the rules that you want your tenants to follow.
At GoldenWest Management, we offer comprehensive property management services including tenant screening and placement.
You can have confidence in the quality of our property management services including peace of mind in knowing that we’re going to take care of your rental property so that it will earn the most ROI possible.
