We appreciate your interest in renting a property from our company. Please review the following list of procedures and qualifications before applying to rent one of our homes.

Procedures:

  • Please drive by and take a look at the exterior of the property that you're interested in before calling to make an appointment to view the interior. If the property listing has a "Now" status of availability, you're welcome to look through the windows of the home, look in the backyard, etc.
  • If interested, contact our office to request an appointment to view the interior of the home(s) that interests you.
  • Be prepared to answer a few brief questions over the phone about your credit, income, pets, etc.. We pre-qualify all prospective Applicants before scheduling an appointment to view a property.

  • The hours of property showings are Monday through Thursday from 9 AM until  6PM, Friday 9 AM until 5 PM, and Saturday from 9 AM until 5 PM. For safety purposes, we do not show properties after dark. Therefore, our hours of showing are adjusted when daylight savings time ends.

Applicant’s Qualifications to Rent:
