How to find good tenants

Tips for Screening Tenants for a Scottsdale Rental

One of the biggest mistakes that new landlords in Scottsdale make when renting out their property is renting it too quickly. No one likes the idea of having a unit that sits vacant because it can be a financial stressor. However, it is generally better to have a vacant unit than to have a unit occupied by a terrible tenant. The problems that a bad tenant can cause are vastly more destructive than waiting a few more weeks to find a qualified tenant. How can you know you are choosing the right candidate for the property though? You need to screen them thoroughly.

Is a Property Management Company Necessary?

Do you have a rental property in the Scottsdale area, or are you thinking about buying an investment property? If so, then you are probably pondering the question of whether you can handle everything on your own when it comes to renting out the unit. After all, simply renting a unit doesn’t seem too difficult. Find someone to rent it, set up a lease, and hand over the keys, right? Of course, you know that it’s nowhere near as easy as that. A property management company in Scottsdale can make a huge difference for the better.

How to Raise Rents and Still Keep the Tenants

While you might not like the idea of doing it, and your tenants will not exactly be thrilled at the prospect, there comes a time when you need to raise the rent. Landlords cannot simply raise the rent whenever they choose; they have to give the tenant proper notice, and they need to make sure that the new rent is still in line with the rest of the rents in the area. If they are too high, you can expect that the tenant will likely put in his or her 30-day notice.
