Viewing a Home
Once you schedule an appointment, our staff will host your viewing and be available to answer any of your questions.

Please note that many of our properties are occupied *DO NOT TRESPASS OR DISTURB CURRENT OCCUPANTS*

*Please note: If you arrive to your appointment more than 15 minutes late, your appointment will need to be re-scheduled as we have other prospective tenants also scheduled to see properties promptly after your scheduled appointment.

Submitting an Application
Visit the property listing online and submit an application by hitting the  “Apply” button.

Note: All persons 18 years of age or older must complete their own application and submit an application fee. All application fees are non-refundable.

Please submit two recent paystub copies with your application. If you are self-employed, income documentation will be required. Examples include bank statements and/or your most recent tax return.

APPLICATION PROCESSING

After your application and fee have been received, our Processing Department will review it and contact the property owner. The Processing Department will inform you if the application will be processed, placed on a back-up status, or if the owner is not agreeable to process it and why.

Application processing involves the following:

Credit screening
Employment/income verification
Resident History

Once an application is submitted the application fee is non-refundable.

Applications are valid for approximately 30 days.

Pet Policy
Due to insurance costs and limitations, some owners may not approve an applicant with the following types of dogs:

  • Pit Bull
  • Rottweiler
  • Chow Chow
  • Doberman Pincher
  • German Shepherd
  • American Staffordshire Terrier
  • Akita
  • Mastiff
  • Cane Corso
  • Great Dane
  • Alaskan Malamute
  • Siberian Huskie
  • Wild dogs such as Wolf Hybrids

If the property owner agrees to allow a pet, the applicant may be required to pay a higher security deposit. Service animals welcome.

Security Deposit
The required security deposit must be received within 72 hours after leased documents are signed, or by the specific date on the lease document.

Screening Criteria

Rental History
A minimum of 12 months of verifiable residence history from a third party landlord is required, unless the applicant has recently sold their home. First time renters may be required to provide a guarantor or pay a higher security deposit.

Any unlawful detainer or eviction will result in a landlord denial.

A history of late rental payments within a 12-month period may result in landlord denial or higher security deposit.

A negative rental verification may result in application denial.

Income
Applicants must earn approximately 3 times the amount of the monthly rent. If the monthly income does not meet the required income, a landlord may decline the application.

Income must be verifiable via pay stubs and employer verification. Self-employed applicants will require proof of income via tax returns or bank statements.

*Social security income, child support, alimony or other forms of income are considered income, provided that the applicant can provide verification of such income.

Employment
Verifiable sustainable employment is required if employment is the only source of income. If unemployed and/or if we are unable to verify the income source, your application will be denied. Self-employed individuals will need to be verified through tax returns and bank statements.

Credit
All information on the credit report is subject to verification, including previous addresses and place of employment. If an applicant has no established credit, the owner of the property may or may not require the applicant to secure a guarantor.

  • If open accounts are 30 days or more past due, the application may be declined (some exceptions for medical collections or home mortgages).
  • Outstanding debt to a previous landlord may result in application denial.
  • A bankruptcy, short sale, or foreclosure may result in application denial or a higher security deposit.
  • Any applicant with a bankruptcy not showing as discharged will be denied.
  • An unpaid Judgment may result in application denial.

*Each property owner has their own credit criteria. Although most do require tenants to have good overall credit, some property owners are more lenient with credit requirements with higher security deposits.

Automatic Denials
Any of the following circumstances will result in an automatic application denial:

  • Any outstanding collection filed by a landlord or property management company in the last three years
  • Any unlawful detainer or eviction within the last three years
  • Any current eviction in process
  • Any open bankruptcy
  • Any criminal activity that includes the selling or possession with intent to sell drugs
  • Any criminal activity of a physical or violent nature
  • Any employment income that is not sustainable and not sufficient to meet the income requirements
  • False information or distortion of the truth on the written application
