What Do Renters Look for in a Landlord?

Good Questions

Q: This question is the flip side of this one. I rent out the largest bedroom in my house, with full house privileges, but it can get sketchy sometimes. (This time around, I'll be doing a background check on possible tenants.) I'd be interested in hearing what tenant/roommates are looking for from me.

Having been a room-renter myself in the past, I know that renting a room in someone else's house is different from renting an entire unit or having a roommate, but was wondering what others look for in the arrangement?
