Frequently Asked Questions

Q: Do you allow pets?
A: Yes, we generally allow pets as long as they are not in violation of our insurance policy.  Please inquire if you have a dog which may be prohibited for liability reasons. We charge a monthly fee of $25 per approved animal.

Q: What’s the security deposit?
A: The standard security deposit is typically less than or equal to one month’s rent.  Additional deposits may be required if you are being foreclosed/evicted from your current home or have no rental history.

A: We do not have an application fee.

Q: Do you allow Section 8?
A: Yes, we are accepting Section 8 at this time.   

Q: Are appliances included?
A: Generally, appliances are not included in the home.  We find that most people have their own and prefer to use them.   We are willing to  provide appliances for a  small monthly fee.

Q: Who mows the yard?
A: It’s important to remember that this is a home and not an apartment.  You are responsible to maintain the exterior of the home.  This includes mowing, trimming, weeding, cleaning gutters, and maintaining a generally pleasing exterior.

Q: What’s the lease term?
A: Our standard lease terms are 12 months.

Q: Do you require Renter’s Insurance (also known as Contents Insurance)?
A: No, but we do encourage it for your protection.  It protects the contents of your home against theft or damage from fire, water, etc.  You can select the insurance company of your choice, and it’s very inexpensive.  For example, a $25,000 contents policy may only cost $10 or $11 per month.  Money well spent protecting yourself.
