  • Applications-Have a good rental application and have prospective tenants complete them.
  • Credit Checks– In finding the perfect tenant, alway run a credit check on any tenant before renting your San Diego investment property.
  • Showing the house-Put signs in front of the San Diego rental and be prepared to take people through the home at their convience.
  • Rental Agreement-A rental agreement is a legal document that must be filled out correctly.  Use a good form.
