A Versus B

By
Services for Real Estate Pros with SCV Leasing, Inc.

A professional property manager will bring you quality tenants; and attracting good qualified tenants is the name of the game!  Moreover, a good tenant is more likely to become a long term tenant.  Having a long term tenant reduces the vacancy rate.  And reducing the vacancy rate increases your profit dramatically. 

At SCV Leasing we believe that there are two types of tenants out there:  "A" tenants and "B" tenants.  "A" tenants are motivated, ready to move, and they are qualified.  They have good credit, stable jobs, reserve funds, and a security deposit.  "A" tenants are less likely to try and negotiate the rent and/or security deposit. 

"B" tenants by contrast always have something to explain.  They want to tell you why they have bad credit, or why that criminal charge is on their record.  Whatever they explain to you, you can be assured they have a reason; and that reason does not involve them, it was always because of someone else.  They are going to try and negotiate the rent, the length of the lease, or the security deposit.  

"B" tenants won't normally call a professional property manager because they know how hard we will scrutinize their file, their credit, and their background. 

SCV Leasing's goal is to create a solid landlord/tenant relationship which will help you to receive rent on-time and encourages the tenant to keep the property in a well maintained condition.  The only way we can create that solid landlord/tenant relationship is to find "A" tenants.

Absolutely! In fact I was just having this conversation with a client TODAY.

As soon as the tenant starts trying to negotiate the deal to high heaven or breaks out the sob story, the "people I don't like are not a protected class, so no thanks" red flag waves high.
