Tenant Screening

Don’t Underestimate Tenant Screening

In 2020, Portland Oregon Tenant Screening is more important than ever before especially during times of economic uncertainty.

Sadly, some landlords neglect tenant screening and they lose income.

A handshake or ‘gut feeling’ about a tenant won’t work anymore. Landlords in Portland Oregon, and across the United States, need to keep the focus on it because this is the best way to choose the most qualified tenants possible for an investment property.


When we take a tenant through the screening process, we’re looking for the ‘ideal tenant’ that meets the following criteria:

  • Monthly income 3x or 2x the rent, depending on location
  • Clean eviction report
  • Good credit score
  • Positive reference checks from past landlords
  • Steady employment history

Is An Applicants Criminal History More Important Than Credit History?

As a landlord, one important thing you will have to face is choosing between a tenant that has a criminal history vs. a tenant that may have a negative credit history.

Many landlords generally view criminal history and income as important in their screening decision. A recent SmartMove user survey showed that 60% of landlords strongly and somewhat agreed that criminal history is more important than credit history.
