i don't know what we use for background checks but we do visit the persons current home. That is how they will treat your home.
Hi Mari! There are a lot of landlord software companies out there that offer this feature, if you need any recommendations feel free to PM. In addition to what Ned said, I recommend walking the potential renter to their car and seeing what kind of condition it's in. Seeing how the applicant treats their current rental and their personal property can tell you how they'll treat your unit! Best of luck.
