If you would like to speed up the application process you can communicate with your references to return a call, fax or email to us as soon as possible.
Why won’t you rent sight unseen?
We do not rent sight unseen because everyone has a different opinion of nice, quiet, safe and other factors that make people comfortable to stay in their home long term. If you are not in the area, but need to secure housing, you are welcome to have a representative view the home for you, and if you trust their opinion the home will fit your needs, you are welcome to fill out an application. The photos on our website are designed to give people an idea of what our rentals look like, however room sizes and location are best experienced in person so that you find the perfect home to meet your needs.
Will you accept my section 8 housing voucher?
Yes. You will follow the same procedure as any other tenant and bring your housing paperwork with you when you are ready to turn in your applications. When you are ready to start looking for housing you will need your LBHA worker name & phone number, housing limit for each county, utility worksheet and either blue or green sheets. Having this information will help us better assist you with your housing search.
Can I make payment arrangements for the deposit?
We are not able to take payments over time for deposits. All the funds need to be paid prior to move in. Deposits are due within 3 business days of your application(s) being approved.
What is the best part of town to live in?
The best part of town is the part of town that best meets all of your needs. What do you need to be living near? Your employment? Your school? Daycare for children?
How much does it cost to move in?
The pro-rated rent, refundable security deposits all need to be paid prior to moving in.
How is pro-rated rent calculated?
We pro-rate our rent calculated on a 365 day calendar year.
Current Rent X 12 (months) = Amount per Year
Amount per year / 365 (days) = Amount per Day
Amount per day X Number of days responsible = Pro-Rated Amount
Example. A tenant pays $895 monthly and the rent starts on the 16th of the month
$895 x 12 = $10,740
$10,740 / 365 = $29.42
$29.42 x 16 = $470.79 Pro-Rated Rent
