Are there any fees related to applying for rentals?
Yes, there is a non-refundable screening fee.  Please see our application page for more details and requirements.  We will not process your application(s) until we receive the screening fee.

How much is the security deposit?
The security deposit is usually equal to one month's rent.  This could vary, depending on the property owner's request and the results of your application.  The security deposit is that and only that, the security deposit.  It cannot be used as your last month's rent.

How much do I need to pay to move in?
This depends on your application results.  Generally, you'll only be required to pay the security deposit equal to one month's rent and the first month's rent upon move in.  There are cases in which we will require an additional security deposit, last month's rent, or both.  You will be notified of the requirements once we received your application results from the screening company.

Why do so many rentals say "No Pets"?
It is usually because the property owners have had bad experiences allowing pets in the past.  Also, depending on the type of pets, the homeowner's insurance may not allow them.

If a property owner will consider pets, it will be stated in the listing.  However, there will be a separate pet deposit in addition to the required security deposit.   All pet approvals are up to the owner of the proposed property.

How long before I know if my application has been approved?
We usually have the results back with 24-48 hours of submitting your application to the property manager and paying the application fee.  Please be sure to complete all the requested information on the application.  The process will only be delayed if you do not provide complete information.

When can I move in?
The actual date will depend on the condition of the property.  Before you can move in: 

  • Any final touchups, cleaning, finishing repairs, etc., needs to be completed.
  • Lease paperwork needs to be signed
  • Rent needs to be received. 
  • We need to conduct a move in walk-thru

After, and only after, these steps have been completed can you start to move in.  You cannot store any belongings in a garage or other out building until then.

What's a move in walk-thru?
A move in walk-thru, is an inspection we conduct prior to tenants moving in.  They are conducted to protect tenants from incurring costs from any damage that was present prior to their move in and to protect the homeowner in the event that there is new damage after the tenants move out.  When tenants move out, a move out walk-thru is conducted for the same reasons and will be compared with the move in walk-thru.
