Nesbitt Realty doesn't “sell” rental places. We market rentals to prospective renters moving to Northern Virginia to find a good tenant. How do you find the the best renter for your rental in 22202 in Arlington County? Vetting applicants is one of the most crucial aspects of every rental manager in Arlington, Virginia.
Our tiny business investigates the applicant’s past behavior. With that in mind, our local business assumes the prospective renter’s future behavior will be the same or similar. The potential lessee should demonstrate a history of being a reliable, top lessee and having the income and debt-ratio to manage rent. Our background checking process is founded on several pillars including:
- Tenant Screening – Nesbitt screens tenants with a combination of checking credit history, background, eviction and criminal screening services as well as our own efforts to collect information needed to confirm and process the application.
- Credit History – The applicant's credit history informs us about the applicant’s current and past performance repaying debts and other responsibilities. The applicant’s credit report also tells us their monthly debt and shows their previous addresses (which we compare to addresses listed on the application). An applicant must have acceptable credit to qualify.
- Income Verification – Nesbitt Realty confirms prospects for continued employment, job status, job title and salary. Depending upon the applicant's debt load, a tenant needs to earn at least 3 to 4 times the monthly rent in gross income to qualify for rental.
If accepted, the prospective renter’s in-processing includes a lease, lease signing, collecting pro-rated rent, and providing the lessee with a copy of any association documents needed for disclosure and instruction on rules and regulations associated with the investment home and community.
