Frequently Asked Questions

How do you screen for potential tenants?

Before we even show your property, we ask a few pre-screening questions to potential tenants. This allows us to gauge the seriousness of the inquiry as well as to confirm requirements such as employment and who will be living in the unit, including any pets. If these answers are sufficient, we will then schedule an appointment for a viewing of the property.

What criteria do you use to choose the right tenant?

Our selection criteria fall into two categories. Primary and Secondary. Primary criteria that must be confirmed and approved:

– Employment income (viewing of recent pay stubs, employer letters, or bank statements)

– Employer references – to confirm actual full-time employment

– Landlord references – confirm they have rented in the past in a responsible manner

– Face to face meeting (usually at first property showing) to get a feel for the tenant

Secondary criteria – if we feel we need more information we will also do background checks/credit checks and may ask for personal references.

What if something needs repair in the unit?

Tenants that care for your home as if it is there own are the best tenants. We take pride in finding you the best possible tenant but every home will at some point need some repair or maintenance work. Appliances may stop working efficiently, plumbing may be needed, or general repair jobs. We will work with the tenant to schedule any repair services with our professional trade partnerships. We take pride in working with skilled and reliable professionals who have a history of doing great work.
