We rent only to applicants whom we have met in person.
1. The first step is to drive by the property.
2. Next, Request a Showing Appointment.
3. A property manager will contact you to arrange a showing.
4. After the showing, if you’d like to rent the property, make an informal lease proposal.
5. If we have a match, we’ll email you an invitation to apply online. There is a $30 fee for the credit history and background screening report. If you apply but we do not process your application (i.e. we accept someone else who applied before you), we won’t collect the fee.
Important: If you make an appointment and cannot keep it or will be late, please be considerate and let us know the moment you realize it. We are making a special trip to the house for you! We’ll wait 10 minutes and if you’re not there, we’ll consider it a no-show.
There is no need to bring paperwork to the showing. If you are invited to apply, that’s when to submit your application. Applications are processed only from prospective tenants whom we have met in person.
We consider the overall profile when selecting an applicant:
Q: Is the property or unit available?
A: The current status is shown on our home page. As soon as the status changes, we update the website.
Q: My credit is bad/awful/can’t be described in words. Will you consider me?
A: Yes. We realize that stuff happens. If you’re a good person, please apply and we’ll discuss your situation.
Q: I can’t pay the deposit all at once. May I make payments?
A: Possibly. If you have good credit and can pay at least one-third up-front, or have no credit or poor credit and can pay at least one-half up-front, AND offer us an acceptable plan for paying the balance, we will work with you. Otherwise, the deposit will be due up front.
Q: I’m coming from out of the area and would like to rent. May I apply?
A: Sorry, we don’t rent to anyone we haven’t met. Let us know when you’ll be in town and we’ll show you the property.
Q: I’d like to visit the property. When we meet, should I bring anything?
A: No, you don’t need to bring anything.
Q: For shared housing, may I meet the other housemates?
A: Yes, you are welcome to meet anyone who is home when you visit and ask them any questions you wish, but we don’t ask the housemates to be available for showings because they have their own schedules.
Q: My personality is like _____. Will you consider me?
A: If you are responsible and considerate of others, we would like to talk to you.
Q: May my spouse/significant other/parent rent with me?
A: Sorry, our rooms are for one person only.
Q: Can my significant other stay over?
A: Yes, occasional overnight guests are allowed. However, only tenants specified in the rental agreement may live at the house.
Thank you for your interest. We hope that you like the property.
