Tenant Requirements

I have been getting a ton of questions at OKCHouseSpot along the lines of "what are your requirements" to rent a house.  This is a brief summary of our process. 

We use an application which is then reviewed through our tenant screening service.  We do not charge an application fee. Once the application is complete, it's a pretty basic approach - we're verifying the information you have given us on the application and we're looking at both your tenant and your work history.  Some bumps on the credit report will not automatically disqualify you from one of our houses, we've all had bumps in our lives.

We review all applications in the order in which they are received.  If we have two equally qualified candidates, the one who applied first will be offered the property first.

Because we hope to have a long term relationship, it is important to us to meet all tenant candidates so you will have to get an application in person, after looking at the house you are interested in.

While we do advertise availability on Craigslist and OKCHouseSpot, our number one approach to meeting candidates and getting applications is through open houses.  You can watch this page to see what houses are available and what open houses are coming up.

You can also email me at any time through the comments section to see what else might be in the pipeline.  To protect the privacy of our tenants, we do not show properties until the prior tenant has moved or has given consent, therefore, I may know of something coming up that is not on the web site for public information.

I hope this helps, feel free to ask any other specific questions you would like to have addressed here.
