Today we are sharing an educational piece on how to find the best tenants.

Either they feel like they can’t do it, or they’re afraid of violating fair housing laws, so they avoid thorough screening and just keep their fingers crossed, hoping to get a great tenant. These are things you want to do not because they’re legally required, but because you want to protect your investment.
