Do you have some other great ideas to share?

Thinking outside the box

think outside the boxWriting a personal letter to a prospective landlord isn't common in my area, but it's something I have every one of my prospective tenants do.

Why? A personal letter is just that, personal, an introduction to who they are.

How many landlords base their decision solely on credit reports and deposits? I can tell you a lot.

So how is a person with horrible credit and/or little money suppose to find a home? Over the years I've placed countless clients into a rental home due in part to the personal letter they wrote.

A letter that introduced them, a letter that explained why their credit wasn't perfect, a letter explaining why they short saled their home or claimed bankruptcy.

I have found landlords will look past the numbers on the paper and focus more on the person, IF the person takes the time to introduce themselves.

If you are working with a prospective tenant
regardless of how they appear on paper I highly recommend including a personal letter with their offer, it can go along way.
