Before you apply, read below to understand our process:
Before you apply, check that the property you're interested in is available during your preferred dates. You can review the availability dates for each of the units on the Our Properties page, or contact us via phone, text or email at the details below. Availability is subject to change at any time so please contact us for questions or to verify availability.
Application Process & Qualification Standards
Review our qualifying standards, move-in requirements, deposit details, etc. so you are aware of expectations before you apply.
Each person over the age of 18 who will be living in the home must complete and submit a separate application and processing fee. In order to qualify, each person must meet or exceed the minimum standards for qualification. Incomplete applications will not be processed. Applications containing false information will immediately be disqualified. Please allow up to 5 days for the application to be processed after the background check has been completed. Processing the application may include direct contact with employers, current landlord, previous landlords, friends, personal and professional references, law enforcement agencies, government agencies, consumer reporting agencies, public records, eviction records and any other sources that may be deemed necessary. A consumer report will be used in the processing of all applications via the background check vendor, SmartMove by Transunion. The application fee will be paid through this vendor. Should the Applicant be denied or face other adverse action based on information received in the consumer report, the Applicant has a right to obtain a free copy of the consumer report and to dispute the accuracy of the information it contains by contacting Transunion at 800-888-4213 or at the following website: https://www.transunion.com/credit-disputes/dispute-your-credit
Deposit to Hold
After approval, if the prospective tenant will not be taking occupancy within 48 hours, a non-refundable Deposit to Hold in the amount stated on the listing will be required within 48 hours to hold the property until a mutually agreed upon move-in date. The property will be held for 14 days until the lease is signed. If the lease is not signed within that time, then the property will be offered to someone else and the deposit will be forfeited unless the landlord is able to find another tenant to lease the property. After all move-in requirements have been met and a lease for the property completed, the Deposit to Hold will transfer to the security deposit to be held throughout the prospective tenant’s entire tenancy. If the prospective tenant fails to provide the Deposit to Hold within 48 hours of approval, the home will be offered to the next qualified applicant.
After approval and before occupancy will be granted, Prospective Tenant must supply all the required move-in funds, including the security deposit, cleaning deposit, first month’s rent, any other additional deposits and fees, and a lease must be executed and signed by all parties.
Applicants who do not meet minimum screening standards will not be approved.
Applicant must have current photo identification and a valid social security number.
All income must be from a verifiable source. Unverifiable income will not be considered.
Applicants must receive positive references from all landlords for the previous 3 years.

Applicant must exhibit a responsible financial life. Credit score must be a minimum of 600.
A background check will be conducted on all applicants over 18.

Applicant must be a non-smoker.
Occupancy is limited to 2 people per bedroom.
At landlord’s discretion, compensating factors such as an additional security deposit or co-signer (guarantor) maybe required for qualification if Applicant fails to meet any one of the above requirements. In the event of multiple applicants, tenancy will be granted to the most qualified, based on the above criteria.
