Here's the solution to not getting bad renters...do a better job in placing your ads, cleaning your apartment, and asking the right questions of prospective tenants. Every time I have an apartment for rent in my building I can't believe how many amazing prospects I meet. Chicago is full of wonderful people who make great tenants. But avoid these key landlord mistakes:
Don't try to get the most rent possible in your area.
Make sure you get rid of nasty carpet, curtains, and really, just anything one who isn't nasty might consider nasty. You might have to ask a non-nasty person's assistance here.
Write ads in such a way as to discourage those most likely to be 'bad' tenants.
Don't have an apartment that has no locational value
