Finding The Right Tenants For You
At Riner Rentals, we treat your investment property as if it were our own. We strive to provide you with the caliber of residents that you want in your rental home. Our application and screening process work towards accomplishing that goal. Having good tenants results in timely rent payments, longer rental periods, and less wear and tear on your property.
Application and Screening Process
Our screening process is multi-faceted and detailed. We start by conducting a credit report on each of our adult applicants, a complete verification of their rental history from past landlords, a verification of their employment, an eviction search and we check their personal references. This process also includes an up to date background check which is generally connected directly to the court records. We do not use a database, as they may be months, even years, old. Taking the time to perform these verifications and checks is what helps us find good tenants. Finding a tenant is easy, finding a quality tenant requires effort and sometimes, multiple applications. We are dedicated to finding the right tenant for each property we manage.
Our application process is also FREE! Many property management companies charge prospective tenants a fee to apply. At Riner Rentals, we feel that offering a free application process gives us broader pool of applicants. Each prospective tenant must be approved before they are shown a property.
A Note on “Bad” Tenants
“Bad” tenants will typically target owner-managed rentals because they can’t pass the application process with property managers. They know that when a property is for rent by owner, the rent is likely to be less and there will be less scrutiny of their financial situation. Because bad tenants can’t be evicted without notice and an eviction can take months and cost you money, we will verify references and do whatever possible to avoid potential bad tenants and associated eviction problems. No option is bulletproof, but we strive to make any and all decisions well-informed decisions.
Until next time,
