Finding the Best Tenants from Roseville Property Management


Finding the right tenant to entrust with your property can be stressful and time-consuming, but once you find the right tenant, it's definitely worth the trouble. It's up to you whether you decide to go it alone or hire one of the quality Sacramento property management teams to take care of everything for you, including maintenance, repair, screening, and leasing duties. However, if you decide to screen your tenants on your own (among other things), there are a few key signs that indicate whether or not a prospective renter will turn out to be a quality tenant. Read on to learn more.


The first communication with the prospective renter--be it over the phone or via email--is important, so pay attention. Is the person interested in renting out your property respectful, polite, and communicative in tone? Does he or she ask relevant and important questions about the property? Are you given the apartment seeker's correct contact information? If a prospective tenant tries to haggle with rent prices right off the bat, you might consider moving on to the next applicant. Apartment seekers who try to talk an owner or an agent of a Roseville property management company down on the rent before even seeing the place could be more trouble than they're worth.


When you meet with a prospective tenant for the first time, take careful note of their appearance and demeanor. A polite, well-kept person is more likely to keep your rental house, condo, or apartment clean and orderly and pay the rent on time. A very important sign to look out for in a great tenant is that he or she offers up all the information you ask for in an organized manner. Can he or she produce pay stubs, bank account statements, and rental references? Does he or she fill out every part of the rental application in full? These are good signs that all owners should look for.
