Default Bad renters

I bought a 3/2 CYV in Hadley which I’d like to rent Jan-March/April 2020. Any guidelines regarding selecting renters? Is there a list of blacklisted renters anywhere?

Be in the upper half of the average rate for a rental in your area, and require (and check) references. Require a serious deposit.

I go to the top 20% of the rental market. So far the worst that I have had were outside smokers. Could not detect smoke in the home. The neighbors were quick to tell me. Renters sneaking in a second couple is pretty common. The unreported broken or missing items have all been quite small in value.

Nowadays, I don't answer rent inquiries if the potential guest is from a few key areas, I just have had enough of the NYC area or Jersey attitude. Also I find the more anyone self promotes how reliable they are the less they are. It is a certain entitled vibe, you will recognize it quickly.

I check them out on Facebook first. I always speak to the renters and feel them out. I just want to make sure we are a good fit as Landlord and Renter. I require a decent deposit. I live six houses from my rental and am available as needed. I have had GREAT renters and many have become friends! Rae

My neighbor up north rents the house he inherited. He has such great tenants over the years I had to ask him how he does it. He said he charges high rent and checks references. He also watches hydro and water usage. He can immediately tell if there are too many people in the building. One person tried to smoke, he was gone in 24 hours, not sure what my neighbor said but the guy was happy to leave.

I am from the north as well, the Jersey attitude is something else. Plenty of great people to have as guests w/o the drama.

OP, there are some local firms that will act as your agent, you may want to inquire which of these are reliable and cost effective. This might save you a lot of trouble.
