How to Apply?

We believe in thoroughly reviewing the applicants to limit the risk of entering into a lease.  No offers are reviewed without a complete application. The first approved candidate is offered a lease.

Step 1: Visit our Available Properties page to identify properties of interest.

Step 2: Review the property information and rental qualifications listed with the property.  Typically each applicant must have a 500 or better credit score with collections of less than $5,000 combined (not including medical or student loans) and have no patterns of violent or drug related misdemeanor convictions or eviction filings.  All applicants age eighteen (18) or over typically need to have a combined net monthly income of three (3x) times the monthly rental rate not including overtime, unemployment or welfare.

Step 3: Prepare your documentation.  To complete your application, you will need to upload the following documents, when prompted:

  1. Clear/Legible scan or photo of your Photo ID (Drivers License, etc...)
  2. Clear/Legible scan or photo showing proof of income (e.g. 3 most recent pay stubs, 3 month of bank statements, or 2 years of tax returns or W-2s)
  3. For Section 8: Clear/Legible scan or photo of your Voucher Package with voucher details

If you are not able to upload a scan/photo of this information, please contact us to make alternate arrangements. Please Note: We must receive these documents within 48 Hrs of your application being submitted or your application will be voided and any application/reservation fees paid will be forfeited.

Step 4: Select the "Apply Now" button at the bottom right on the corresponding property listing.
You will be asked to enter and upload:

  • Your contact information
  • Where you've lived
  • Your housemates
  • Personal information
  • Your Income
  • A few questions that tell us about yourself and your habits
  • Upload documents including a photo ID and proof of income
  • And anything else you would like us to consider such as reference letters and/or letter of intent

A low $15 application fee will be charged to your credit card to complete your credit, eviction and criminal background check (additional fees may apply for other adults listed on the lease).  

Step 5: Once your application has been reviewed and has passed the property requirements, we will schedule a tour of the property

Step 6: If you like the property and want to proceed with the application, you can then complete the lease agreement and provide the first month's rent and security deposits.

Please note that Utilities (electric, gas, etc.) for the property will need to be placed into the tenants name (deposits may apply).  Also, you will need to provide proof of Renters Insurance after execution of the lease.  Renter’s insurance protects the tenant from liability and can cover personal belongings while living in the rental.

Step 7: Move-In.  You will receive the keys on your move in date provided that everything is completed and approved including:

  • Proof of Renter’s Insurance with $100,000 in liability coverage
  • Executed documents pertaining to your new property
  • Have your Utilities set up
  • All monies due for Move-In costs (provided in either Cashier’s Checks or Money Orders)
  • Signed W9 for security deposit interest (paid annually) - IRS Form W9 - rev 12-14.pdf

You will also be required to sign/complete a Statement of Present Condition within 5 days of your lease start date.  You should read it carefully in order to see if it is correct. If it is correct, you must sign it. This will show that you agree that the list is correct and complete. If it is not correct, you must attach a separate signed list of any damage which you believe exists in the premises.  If you do not return this list within the specified time period, a court may later view your failure to return this list as your agreement that the list is complete and correct in any suit which you may bring to recover the security deposit.
