Agents Must Help Their Renter Customers - it adds up

By
Real Estate Broker/Owner with Christian Realty San Antonio 540730

Many of us work with folks who want a rental.  We advise them on the rental process or we are supposed to anyway.      When a tenant wants to add up all their income to qualify at the 3 x the amount of monthly rent, beware!

 

Adding into the equation the amount of educational monies from the Federal government from the GI Bill entitlements does not cut it.  Those funds are earmarked and the renter has no control over them.  They cannot use them to buy beans and grits for their family.

 

It pains me, as a property manager, to decline an application.  Applications cost money.  For some, money is real tight.  For most of us, it is hard to come by, not growing on trees and all.

 

So please educate your renter customers as to the process of renting a property so they are not spinning their wheels and wasting their precious resources.

 

Thanks so much for reading and best wishes!

Dominick,

I feel your pain.

I only listed one rental about a year ago and it was depressing to have to turn down the 15 or so apps who had to pay a co. and only one applicant got the unit!
