It may seem like this is none of your business and you may be hesitant to ask, but this question is important and you need to listen to the answer carefully. You might find an answer that will stir a red flag and make you hesitant about going any further. Be wary of a tenant who is moving due to an eviction or because of a bad relationship with their prior landlord. Also watch out for tenants who complain about their current living situation. Bad tenants often bring their bad problems with them. You want to look for more legitimate reasons like needing a larger place for a family, downsizing due to an empty nest, or changing jobs and needing to move to a new area.
