Are you planning on renting your Las Vegas rental property out to a new tenant but are concerned that they might not be the best tenant because they don’t have a 650+ credit score? If so, you’ve come to the right place!

Even though we would like to rent to prospective tenants that have good credit scores, the reality is that there are other criteria that you should look for when considering a renter including the following:

#1 – Honesty

Is the individual you are planning on renting to not afraid to tell you about their job, credit history and personal history? If so, honesty is a great thing when considering a tenant because this means that you will be able to trust them to keep their word and pay their rent on time.

#2 – Consistency

Another important thing to consider before renting to a tenant is consistency. This means that the potential renter shows up on time to meet you, returns your calls and complies immediately with your request for their documentation.

#3 – Verification

When speaking with a potential tenant it’s also important for you to make sure that their references and job history can be verified by you calling those references individually or doing a separate background check on that tenant with a 3rd party company.

#4 – Patience

Last of all, but most important is patience. You want to rent to a tenant who is not necessarily in a hurry to rent and realizes that it sometimes takes time to do background check plus call a tenant’s references.
