All homes are first come first serve and you must have an approved application, payment of the security deposit in full and a signed lease to secure a home.

Our application process can take as little as 48 hours if you provide all of the required information below. Keep in mind – We cannot process an application until the application fee is paid and we have all supporting application documentation (see below for details).

Application & Approval Requirements:

Application Fee: An Application fee of $45.00 for each adult (over 18 Years old) in the house is required. App Fee must be paid prior to the application being processed. The app fee is paid during the final step of the online application online with a debit or credit card (no other payment method accepted).

Income Requirements: Applicant(s) must have Net Household Income of at least 3 times the monthly rent rate.
Example: Rent is $700.00 a month we require you to net (“take home”) $2,100.00 a month (Verifiable Income Only). In addition to normal wages we also accept SSI, Disability, retirement pensions, child support and other verifiable income. Unemployment payments, student loans, and food stamps are not accepted as income.

Credit History: Applicant(s) must not have any utility or prior landlord collections. No car repossessions or judgements. Excessive amounts of debt, late payments, charge of accounts or past due balances may cause denial. Any Bankruptcy must be discharged for 6 months or longer.
