Verify everything that you can. I always call the place before the place they live now. If they are bad tenants sometimes the now landlord will give them a good report to get them out.
It’s worth your time to check them out. Ask them if they have the money in the bank or will they have to get a loan if they need a down payment or option money. If they have to get a loan, well…that will take a lot longer and they might not qualify. Money in hand is what I look for, plus good employment record. Spend time in researching instead of A LOT of MONEY later. Trust me, it’s easier this way. smile
