Searching for a rental property is new and exciting for many of us. Finding the right fit is more than just driving by a property and dropping off your application. The more research you do, the greater your chances of finding the perfect place to call home for the next year.
Below describes the basic selection process:
Step 1: Search our website and review all units that meet your needs regarding price, location, availability date, amenities, pets, etc. Review all the available pictures, video tours and floor plans.
Step 2: Drive by the properties to see if they meet your needs regarding location, bus stop location, curb appeal, etc.
Step 3: Narrow your search to 2 to 3 potential rental properties.
Step 4: Call or visit our office for more information and information regarding availability. Availability can change quickly based on demand. An experienced agent in our office can help you determine if the exact unit you want meets the time frame, pet requirements, and price you need.
Step 5: Review our rental application criteria and our sample lease and deposit agreement to determine if you are able to meet and fulfill all the requirements. Processing your application may be delayed or you may lose your place in line if you do not properly qualify.
Step 6: After you have researched the units and selected your top choices, schedule an appointment to view the unit or submit an application. If you plan to make a viewing appointment, all roommates, significant others, parents, etc. should be involved with viewing the interior. Due to the large volume of requests we receive, showing a unit more than once to the same party will not be possible. You are not required to view a unit. IF you must see the unit before moving in, schedule a viewing before applying. Once a lease is signed, we will not schedule any more showings to respect our current tenant’s privacy. Pictures and videos on our website may represent a sample of the unit only and may not reflect specific details of each unit.
Other considerations before renting with Apex:
The number of vehicles allowed at any apartment or house is never more than 1 vehicle per bedroom.
When applying with a pet:
If you have a pet, you must determine if the unit for which you are applying allows a pet. Not all units or buildings are pet friendly and the unit’s ability to accommodate a pet is subject to change without notice. If approved, a NON-REFUNDABE pet fee of $320 will be due at move in, and a signed Pet Addendum will be required.
