How To Find A Quality Tenant For Rental Property

It is often said that good tenants often become good friends. While this is not a universal rule, surely you can imagine how much better it would be to have great tenants to whom you would rent your space to, instead of the spawn of Satan?

Loud music, frequent parties, disorderly conduct and plain old disregard for public peace and order are the characteristics of your average idiotic tenant. However, if you’re looking for help with finding a good person(s) and turning them into a great neighbor or business associate (you know what that means), you’ve come to the right place.

Tricks Of The Trade

When one is looking to find a quality tenant for rental property in California, there are a number of factors that should be considered. First of all, it’s always good to have a little bit of instinct and, contrary to popular belief, judge a book by its covers (only a little bit). Example: when you meet a guy with a long, greasy, bushy excuse for hair, smelly clothes and a 3-month beard – that should be a dead giveaway about your future (non-existent) business arrangement.

On the other hand, not everybody looks like a hobo and that’s when things get a little more challenging, especially when it comes to California. Given that the “I-see-nothing-wrong-with-you-on-the-outside” approach only works on several occasions, one of them being described in the previous passage, you might have to dig deeper. If your instinct sounds no alarm and you assume that the person wanting to rent your apartment/house/room is ok, it’s time to take the next step – checking their financials. A person’s bank account and previous recorded payment history say a lot about them, especially their attitude about obligations and regularity. If your inner alarm does go off during your scrutiny of an applicant’s financial records – you know what to do.

Make Them Come To You

Another way to try genuinely to find a quality tenant for rental property in Riverside County, California is to put out an ad, specifying all the precise requirements you’re looking for in a candidate. Such an ad typically represents a good way to sort out the unwanted candidates from the potentially good ones, but be careful, because nothing’s perfect, especially in California.

Because people have a tendency to overlook important things (like the full requirements listed in an ad), you might still end up talking to people who aren’t what you’re looking for. So, an ad is a potential solution that could work, but not a guaranteed one.

Talk To The Pros

In the end, if all else fails (or in the beginning, if you don’t what to go through everything aforementioned), one of the best ways to find a quality tenant for rental property in Orange County, California is to hire a property management company with a good reputation.
