Qualifications

Please be prepared to pay the application fee as outlined in the property listing. In addition to this rental application, you will also be required to provide a copy of a valid form of identification and proof of income.

Qualifications as of May 23, 2017

INCOME/EMPLOYMENT:

You must have a minimum of three months employment history with your current employer. If utilities (W/G/S) are included, we require the household’s gross income be 2.5 times the monthly rent. On our homes without these utilities included, we require a verifiable gross income of 3 times the monthly rent. All income must be verifiable, we accept proof via most current pay check stub, W-2 and/or tax return.

CREDIT:

Credit scores, judgments, collections, late payments, and debt to income ratio are all used in determining the best applicant for a property. A FICO score above 700 is optimal and FICO scores between 620 and 699 may be considered conditionally (often with a co-signor and/or a higher deposit); a FICO score below 620 may be grounds for an automatic denial of the application. Any applicants owing utility companies and past landlords must pay off these balances and provide proof prior to being approved.

RESIDENT HISTORY:

You must tell us where you have lived for the last SEVEN CONSECUTIVE YEARS with no gaps in the date ranges even if you have not rented. Rental history of at least 3 years must be verifiable from independent, unrelated sources. Landlord references are very important. The way you paid your rent and took care of the property provides the best indication of how you will deal with future rentals. If we can not speak with your previous landlords, we may not be able to complete the application. Negative information received from a landlord will result in denial of the application. Renting from friends or family will not be considered. If you do not have the required rental history, but meet our other guidelines, you may be required to pay double deposit or you may be denied. We may visit your current residence if possible.

EVICTIONS:

We normally do not rent to anyone who has been evicted, however we may consider your tenancy if the eviction was over five years ago and was for nonpayment of rent, you currently have sufficient income, you have had perfect rental history since the eviction, you do not owe a landlord money, there has not been more than one eviction, there is no negative information received from the evicting landlord except for nonpayment and you are willing to pay double deposit.

Each resident over the age of 18 must submit a separate rental application. We support Equal Housing Opportunity and encourage users of our site to follow appropriate guidelines to comply with the Federal Housing Act, as well as any applicable state and local regulations. All renters are hereby informed that all property rental offers are available on an equal opportunity basis.

COSIGNORS & LARGER DEPOSITS:

If you lack sufficient rental history, have a FICO credit score below 700 or have been at your job for less one year, some property owners may consider your application with a larger security deposit and/or a co-signor. Not all property owners consider co-signors.

Providing ANY false information shall be grounds for rejection or subsequent termination of tenancy.
