# 8 Your neighbor’s son wants to rent your property. Score! It was easy finding a tenant…or was it?
Finding a tenant may be easy, but finding a QUALIFIED tenant takes more time and effort! While it’s human nature to want to believe that people will be good tenants and pay rent on time, you should use more than your intuition when deciding who will occupy your rental investment. Even if you know the prospective tenant personally or they’re related to a friend, researching concrete facts about them BEFORE they sign the lease may give you much more peace of mind.
While credit checks are one way to learn more about your prospective tenant’s ability to pay, Property managers will often do much more. At Clients 1st, we not only check credit reports but also conduct national and state criminal background checks, alias searches, prior eviction and ‘skips’searches (‘skips’ are people who left a property without paying). We also perform real-time rental verifications and employer verification. Your prospective tenant may have had a job last week, but does she have one this week? Clients 1st performs these extra steps to assist rental property owners in maximizing investment profits and minimizing their loss.
