Jeffrey Taylor - www.MrLandlord.com says it is better to go visit the potential tenant at their current location and see how they are living there. If you see pennies scattered all over the floor - that is a red flag so do not rent to these tenants. After 10 years, I can attest that most of the individuals that move out in the middle of the night will leave their penny jar strewn all over the unit! I rolled them up and deposited them in rolls. Deposited $12 one time and Bank of America tried to charge me a $4 "coin handling fee". Got that fixed in a hurry.
