Tenant Screening 101: A Step-by-Step Guide [ VIDEO ]

Written on September 30, 2014 by , updated on April 21, 2015

I believe that the best way to deal with bad tenants is to make sure they never move in!

That’s why tenant screening is one of the most important steps in the landlord lifecycle.

In our ongoing efforts to educate landlords nationwide, I host classes and webinars on a variety of rental topics.

In the most recent webinar, I discuss general best practices for tenant screening, including my very own 8-step process to select the best tenants.
