Rigorous Credit, Income and Criminal Screening
Stevens Realty makes
every effort to find tenants who will pay rent a timely manner. We require
all rental applicants to verify their income to ensure they can afford the
rent. We run criminal and credit background checks on everyone who is over
age 18 in the home. We also check with the last two landlords, the tenants
rented from, to make sure they were good tenants. We follow all Federal and
State real estate regulations to ensure you are in full compliance.
We inspect all rental properties we manage on a
regular basis to ensure they are being well maintained by the tenants.
These inspections are done by local qualified home inspectors who will
inform you of any issues that need to be addressed. We will also update you
if we find any issues with the property's plumbing, water heaters, air
conditioners, or any other mechanical systems and appliances.

web-based property management system. We provide our Nashville property
owners with online access to view their financial statements that show when
monies are collected and disbursements are made. We provide numerous
reports including tenant rental payment history, work order history,
property history and financial statements. Our system provides you, the
owner, with access to the information you need, when you need it.
