I have these potential tenants who keep begging me for the apartment. normally i dont ask for bank account numbers but i felt like i really needed it since only one of them is employed. its a brother and two sisters. the sisters are both trained in dialysis technition and hospice work so they should have no problem finding a job in the area. I asked to see the bank account because she kept saying she had money and there is only 1000 dollars in the account. my rent is 2000 a month.
i still need to verify the brothers bank account and the sisters but now im starting to feel really uncomfortable because i really dont want them to move in, not be able to pay then have to start the eviction process.
if you were in my position, would you take them? would you give them the benefit of the doubt and accept the fact that because they are moving to a new state its normal that they dont have a job lined up or would you not accept them? im really on the fence, i really really like these people and i just fired the realtor we were working with because in the three months of working for me he has only showed the apartment once according to my other tenants, yet he claims hes been "working hard" but he seems like hes on a cocktail of drugs :/ so i fired him.
i dont know what to do. any advice would be appreciated.

You aren't making them pay the first months rent in advance?
