When someone responds to your written/text ad….
AD – Brief description, Street, number, town. Bedrooms, baths. $/month, 1st? Last? Security? Utilities?
usually they will then ask about pictures…
Sorry they’re finishing a little work on it. Or There’s someone still living there.
We would actually like to know more about this Potential Tenant:
- When are you looking to move in?
- Tell me a little bit about your job?
- How many people are with you?
- Is your Souse/Partner also working?
If those answers are making sense to you…
Good this sounds like we should meet, there….
At the property, call someone or leave a message(family, friend) to let them know where you are and with who! There are still scammers out there...
If, after meeting and touring the property, it seems like a match, you can take a picture of their government ID picture license. Give the potential Tenant an approved (Greater ?somewhere Real Estate Board) make sure there are spaces for DOB & SS! Otherwise it’s not possible to run credit/Tenant check!
What’s important, in your Tenant investigation?
Mass.gov housing Court – Nothing there, ONLY!
Credit – Cable company, Medical charge offs No big deal
Two weeks net income = monthly rent.
Bank statement showing last two months have a balance >/= move in cost!
