Key Strategies for Effective Renter Screening
Background screening is arguably the most important part of a housing provider’s responsibility, but poor practices and new laws make learning about your applicants more difficult. Join us for a presentation on “Demystifying Discrepancies” at the EBRHA 360 Trade Expo (September 29, 1-5 PM), and learn how to safely and confidently use background checks while navigating upcoming legislation.
Your commitment to effective screening strategies and attention to detail will be well worth it when you find the right renter for your property. You will increase your net operating income (NOI), decrease future resident problems, and maximize your property’s potential.
