Why is tenant screening important?

We strive to get your investment rented quickly, but feel it is important to get the RIGHT tenant versus the FAST tenant! Spending time up front and finding the BEST tenant for your rental creates a good experience all around, versus one that is stressful and frustrating.  

Often people think they just need to do a quick credit check (Zillow offers this service) and verify employment (Zillow does not offer this service) but there is more to it than that. Our high-quality tenant screening process digs deeper. 

We gather extensive information on the following: 

•Credit check 

•Employment verification 

•Debt to income ratios 

•Eviction history check 

•Criminal history check 

•Previous landlord calls

Our screening process is not just based on a credit score only-we take a comprehensive look at the overall applicant. When you rent to tenants who will respect and take care of your property, you get some peace of mind. Peace of mind is worth the cost, time and trouble of screening potential tenants. 

If you prefer to have someone handle screening tenants for you, contact us today. At Cardinal Property Management can manage every step of the rental process for you.
