1. We have assured our owners that we will only show their property to qualified tenants.
2.We don’t want to waste anyone’s time; ours, the tenant’s, or the owner’s.
3. It allows us to pre-approve prospective tenants without having to charge an application fee.
4. For safety reasons, our Broker requires that we have verified identity of the potential tenant and have a completed application in place before we are allowed to go out on showings with complete strangers.
