How to Find The Best Possible Tenants

07 Dec How to Find The Best Possible Tenants

Metro Property Services, services Los Angeles’ Westside, which is one of the most desirable residential areas in the contiguous 48 states. As such, the properties we lease and manage for our clients are usually at the upper end of the price/value spectrum. This means the rental rates tend to be at the upper end as well.


When it comes to finding qualified tenants, we like to find the ones that would be classified as ‘A-List.’ This doesn’t mean celebrities, but instead refers to certain qualities that determine that a tenant is the best of the best. First, we seek tenants with credit ratings in at least the high 600 range. We also desire tenants with a solid employment history as well as a good tenancy and/or ownership record. Tenants such as these are the ones who can afford to pay the security deposits and monthly rent, both on time and consistently.

Sometimes it can be difficult to separate the pretenders from the actual A-Listers, but knowing how to find them is part of the art of what we do at MPS.

We have a complete understanding of our local area and we make sure to expose our properties to the most targeted market of potential tenants. One way that we set ourselves apart is by using the Internet and social marketing to accomplish this. Research and common sense tells us that this is where consumers go to find products and services these days. Our property postings include multiple photographs and video tours as well as neighborhood data and maps.

In addition to this, we also use traditional methods of print media and signage.  We have the experience and know-how to find the best tenants for your property. There’s too much at stake when it comes to property management to try and go it alone. You can rely on Metro Property Services for your professional property management needs.
