Rental Application FAQ

What do I need to apply?

You need an application for each adult, a valid government photo ID and payment in cash or money order ($35 for each applicant over 18 via the online application or $55 for each applicant over 18 via a paper application)

How long does the application process take?

Applications are typically processed within 3 days (optimal) to 7 days depending on responses from landlords, employers, and possibly references. We reach out once to those necessary parties. If we do not hear back from them within 24-48 hours we will reach out to you to help with this process. We then reach out once more to those parties. After 7 days, the application will go into inactive status if you or references do not reply. After 30 days your application expires and you will be required to resubmit an application.

If I want to change something about the house how do I do that?

Any change you make to the home must be approved by us prior to you doing so with the exception of hanging pictures. We do ask that you use command strips and not to put holes in the walls. 

Can you fix something about the house before I move in?

We rent the homes “as is” so in general, no, but you can always ask. 

After I get approved, then what?

Once you are approved you can come into our office during our business hours and drop off the security deposit which is the same price as the rent.  If you have an approved pet, you will also be required to pay a non-refundable pet fee at this time. You will have 2 weeks (14 days) from the date listed on the deposit to have all utilities at the property transferred to your name, make an appointment to come in and sign the lease, and pay one full month’s rent or you forfeit your entire security deposit.

Is the security deposit refundable if I decide not to rent the home?

The security deposit is non-refundable in the event that you change your mind and/or do not move into the home. It will not be refunded to you. A security deposit is only refundable with the successful fulfillment of the lease.

Can I sign my lease online?

In order to sign your lease you must make an appointment to come into our office and sit down with a property manager and go over the lease. All adults over 18 that will be living in the property or are on the lease MUST be at this appointment. Please plan to be here about 30 minutes for this appointment. Please bring your government issued photo id with you to this signing.

Can I pay my rent/deposits with checks or debit cards?

We do not accept checks or credit/ debit cards for deposits or the first month's rent. Deposits need to be paid with cash or a money order. Once you have signed your lease and are a tenant, you will be able to pay rent online with your credit card via our web portal access with an additional 3.5% or with your checking account online for free. We also accept cash, checks, or money order for rent in our drop box. 

Do you charge pet deposits?

Many of our homes allow for pets, but not all. We do charge a non-refundable pet fee in addition to $25 per pet rent on top of the rental price. Make sure to include photos of your pet on your rental application!
