How to stick out when applying to rent a home

 

 

When a Potential Tenant is searching for a home, they need to be able to move quickly when they find the home they want to rent. Applying for a home to rent can be tricky, especially if there are other applicants. As a potential Tenant you want to make the best impression as you possibly can, so there are some things you should do before you start the process.

 

The first thing a potential Tenant needs to do is get your updated credit report and have it with you when you meet with the Landlord or Property Manager. Even though they will want to run their own, if you have your report, they can give you an idea if your report will be a problem or not. And if you have some issues with your report, have the reasons for the problems and show hard evidence that those problems are being addressed.

 

Next, have your current landlord, if possible, write a personal letter, about your status as a Tenant and have them put a phone number in the letter for contact purposes.

 

Have your job information available and contact information that the Landlord or Property Manager can use to call and check on your job Status. If you are self employed, have your financial statements ready showing how strong your employment status is. As a potential Tenant, you want to give as much information about your financial situation as you feel comfortable doing, but remember, the more information you give to show your financial strength as a potential Tenant the better.

 

Tell the Landlord or Property Manager why you want to rent the home. Remember, you are selling yourself and I know for me, when I am interviewing a potential Tenant, I like to hear a good story on your reasons for renting a home. I really don’t want to read a story though, I want to hear it from the Tenant themselves, and I like to meet the entire family if possible.

 

The last thing I like to see is that a potential Tenant is organized. Have all your information organized in a folder and make it easy for the Landlord or Property Manager to understand the information, and always be available to be contacted by the Landlord or Property Manager. If there are hours in the day that are better for your availability for calls, let the decision maker know.

 

When you are applying for a home, you want to be the applicant that sticks out to the Landlord or Property Manager. I remember one home I had for lease and I had 15 people show up one night to see the home and I received 5 applications. One family was in the home for the entire time and they made it seem as though the home was perfect for them. We talked and laughed, and I knew, that if everything looked good on their application and all checked out, they were going to get the house. They have turned out to be the best Tenants, and they sold that to me the first night I met them.

What my clients are saying  

5 reviews 5.0 star rating 1/21/2016 I was tired of using a large management team to manage my investment property. I felt I was always on the back burner. I was recommended to Tony from a business associate, he assured me I would be very pleased. Well that was an understatement, Tony is amazing. He's above all honest and always available for my concerns. I'm not as well versed as other investors with property management and maintenance and tenant relations, Tony has been an excellent partner and has guided me through quite a bit of needed repairs and worked far beyond what was expected to help turn my little investment into quite a prosperous investment, If what your looking for is prompt return calls, honest direction and someone very knowledgeable with general contractors and real estate laws, Tony is your man.
