Wanted: Good Tenants for your Rental Units

In Brevard County, from Palm Bay to Titusville, people handling property management can tell you that one sign of a good tenant is one who consistently pays the rent on time.  A good tenant respects the rental property and follows the terms outlined in the lease.  A good tenant just can make life – and property management – in Brevard County a lot easier, and there are plenty of good tenants in Palm Bay, Rockledge, Viera, Merritt Island, Cocoa and everywhere else in Brevard County.  So how do you find the good tenants for your rental unit?  A few guidelines can help you in your search.

Start with the Best Rental Property

When you are looking for investment rental property, probably the first consideration should be the location of your rental property.  Even with a nice piece of real estate, it can be hard to place tenants if that property is in a less desirable location. Everywhere from Palm Bay to Cocoa, Merritt Island and Titusville in Brevard County – your property management efforts will result in better tenant applications in neighborhoods with good shopping access, close schools and a location with easy access to main roads.

Have a Thorough Screening Process

The key to finding the best tenants is having the best screening process for applications of potential renters.  The tenants renting your home can affect the entire community so a rigorous screening process can’t be overlooked as a key part of property management in Brevard County (from Palm Bay to Port St. John and Titusville).  Property owners show responsibility to the community when making sure that the best tenants are placed in their rental units.  You can legally screen potential tenants using credit checks and rental histories to make sure income is adequate for the rent payment, and that nothing negative has happened at previous rental locations.  You can also check with sex offenders’ lists and conduct criminal background checks as well as check with the up-to-date terrorist list.
