What's a trick when vetting your potential real estate tenants

We vet our tenants via

  1. credit checks
  2. Reference checks
  3. Interview and gut feeling

There are many more ways, but instead of getting Into those, I'll show you what to do when you want to make sure the tenant provided an actual “previous landlord” reference and not just the name and number of a family member or friend

Ask your tenant for the name of the home/condo owner, and then call them asking “How much is the rent for the condo/house you’re leasing?” There’s a good chance you’ll catch the friend/relative off their guard and they may say “I don’t have a place for rent.”
