Renting places is not about shopping renters. It's about finding the the dream tenant. Qualifying applicants is one of the most essential charges of any professional managing agent in the City of Alexandria.
Nesbitt Realty & Management check outs the possible tenant’s past behavior. With that in mind, our tiny real estate business assumes the possible renter’s future behavior will be the same or similar. The applicant should demonstrate a history of being a top, good renter while meeting our financial criteria. Our background checking process is founded on several elements including:
- Income Verification – Our small operation checks out salary, job title, prospects for continued employment and job status. Depending upon the possible lessee's debt load, a tenant needs to earn at least 3 to 4 times the monthly rent in gross income to qualify for rental.
- Landlord Reference – Nesbitt Realty utilizes public information, tax records and other research and verification to ensure that we're talking to actual landlord about actual rental history of the potential tenant.
- 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.
If accepted, the applicant’s in-processing includes a lease, lease signing, collecting pro-rated rent, and providing the renter with a copy of any association documents needed for disclosure and instruction on rules and regulations associated with the rental home and community.
