Find Quality Tenants You Can Be Thankful For
Finding the “perfect” tenant for your rental property may not be feasible but finding a quality tenant may be easier than you anticipated. With a few simple steps, you too can rest at ease knowing you made all the right moves from start to finish.
Have your potential renter fill out a rental application. If you’re unsure if you are up-to-date on all new regulations in Los Angeles, contact us here for a free rental agreement audit.
Perform a background check. Background checks are often left out of the renter’s application. (Guess what? We do this for free!)
Require rental insurance. Encourage positive behavior from your tenant and give you peace of mind.
Now that you have a great tenant how do you keep them?
Respecting their boundaries and privacy can go a long way in building a good relationship with your renter. But that doesn’t mean you have to be estranged. Send a birthday card, make a positive phone call, and give them 24 hour notice to let you know you’re dropping by to make a repair. This helps build a relationship and you can do a property checkup in a positive way.
Take care of any repairs requested by your tenant within a timely manner. A good tenant is unlikely to resign a lease with a landlord that puts off maintenance. Contact us if you need assistance finding quality workers. And be sure to check out our article on upgrading your property for luxury renters.
Simply thank them. This acknowledgement let’s your tenant know you appreciate them and also encourages future positive behavior. This is a really tough time in Los Angeles for renters and landlords. If you find a quality tenant, thank them for it!
With these simple tips, you can find your ideal tenant and keep them!
