I tend to be suspicious of people who launch into convoluted stories about people who done em wrong. and about why they have to move. Another suspicion is people who excessively boast about their religious faith, as if that makes up for lack of income, a bad rental and credit record.
In today's rental market, it is difficult to expect a perfect credit record from an applicant, but if it is all bad with no good history at all, you have to be cautious.
first and have been able to get them leased out before putting them in MLS. Great Rentals are going in 24 hours to 3 days here. You will need to be able to run credit, do a backround check, and talked to old landlords to get good tenants. Realtors can do a great job of getting good tenants. Doing it yourself may not be the best way to go.
Best Of Success!
I'm feeling your pain as a one time United States president said back in the 90's...
One of the things you might consider is working with a property manager. You can either have them do just a "lease up" which means they would market your property, do the back ground screening and complete all the paper work and conduct the "move in" process, after which they just turn it over to you.
We've done that many times for folks who don't like to market it, but can handle the ongoing management themselves.
Or... you could just hire a property manager to do it all.... at any rate pick a company that does mostly "internet" marketing...
One thing I don't agree with is that I'm not a big fan of "section 8" housing.
Just a couple of reasons why.... #1, you get tenants that pay very little into it and they don't take care of your property and #2, you get the government involved in dealing with the tenants.
Now there are going to be people who will disagree with me... but if your home is located in a decent enough area with some curb appeal and you've fixed it up after this last tenant's trashing, you'll not have any problem getting a new tenant in.
I hope this helps.
Make it a great day....
