Some Advice from one property manager to another

>> Monday, April 12, 2010

You never really know how a tenant is going to be until you move them in.
See this person, this person and this person all seemed great on paper and made a wonderful first impression.
But don't we all??
Well most of us anyways.
Here we do the normal credit/background check which gives us the basic info.
I find that collect accounts to cell phone companies and California Edison seem to be red flags.
But someone could pay all their bills and still be a total A$$.
But thanks to the wonderful public access court websites, facebook and blogs I can see a person true identity.
So to the person who applied today with good credit but with no rental should probably remove the giant marijuana leaf and picture of you with a giant bong off of your myspace page.
I am just sayin.

PS- To all those managers out there try this website it will give you a full background on your perspective tenants.

the website isn't 100% accurate. Maybe on the age but that is about it haha! I don't even live in the states anymore and I never owed the house it says I do. So it isn't really up to par. I don't think i would rely on that page for accurate details. Better to just "stalk" err check up on the people by typing their names on google ;)

Just sayin.

Actually it's very accurate. But you have to sign up for the membership. It gives a full credit report and background check but the added bonus is it gives the social networking sites that match the persons name.

Here's another little bit of advice: save money on your utility bills by getting them checked by professionals that have over 20 years of experience in reading all that rate and tax gobbley-gook. The review is FREE, as in doesn't cost you a dime out of pocket! Check out my company at
