Screening Better Tenants for Your Matthews Rental Property

Smart investors know that professional Matthews property managers like your team at RE/MAX Gold can attract high quality tenants who pay rent on time and take care of your property. We use our local expertise, industry knowledge, and a strong investment in technology and tools to conduct a thorough tenant screening before we place anyone in your rental home. 

We conduct thorough background checks that include credit history reviews, verifying income, looking for past evictions and criminal records, and talking to current and former landlords. We want to know exactly who we’re moving into your property.


Fair and Compliant Application Processing and Review

Our marketing efforts at RE/MAX Gold are pretty intense and very strategic, so it’s never long before we begin to generate interest and field inquiries and calls from interested prospective tenants. We do a little pre-screening over the phone before we even show your property. We want to know when they want to move, what their budget is, whether they have pets, and why they’re looking for a new rental home.

After a prospective tenant has visited your home and asked us any follow-up questions, we invite them to complete an application. Any adult 18 years of age or older will be required to fill out a separate application and pay an application fee. It’s important that everyone is screened before a lease is offered.

We keep our process compliant with all state, federal, and local fair housing laws. Because we are automated and able to document everything, there can never be any claims of discrimination or unfair treatment. We know the fair housing laws and we understand the difference between a pet and a service animal. Our screening process is well-documented and few follow it consistently. 

Before they apply, tenants are advised about our qualifying criteria and what we need to see in order to approve them. There are rarely any surprises.

What to Expect from RE/MAX Gold Tenant Screening

Our screening process has been developed over our many years of providing outstanding Matthews property management. It has resulted in lower vacancy and turnover rates for our owners, and successful rental experience for all parties. We rarely have to evict, and we have positive, professional working relationships with our tenants.

All of our screening is compliant with fair housing laws and designed to identify the most qualified tenants for your rental home. It includes examining backgrounds and rental histories. We make sure your tenants can afford the rent, and we look for residents who are communicative, transparent, and easy to work with.

Screening includes:

  • Reviewing credit history for on-time housing and utility payments.

  • Reviewing nationwide eviction records.

  • Checking for criminal histories.

  • Verifying income through employment contracts, pay stubs, tax forms.

  • Checking rental references from current and former landlords.

Landlords who place tenants without the benefit of professional property management resources often find they’re chasing down late rent payments and dealing with property damage after their residents leave. We protect your investment by screening thoroughly and rigorously.

RE/MAX Gold protects your property. We only work with the most highly qualified tenants.
