Q: How fast can you find the perfect property for me?
A: We might already know about the perfect place for you! Since we are constantly searching the San Antonio rental market for our customers, we have the most current availability. We have even helped people move-in the very same day they started looking. Even if you are not in San Antonio, we can help you lease an apartment by fax without having to view it in person. We can email you detailed property information complete with pictures and floor plans from our state-of-the-art database to help you make a better decision on your new home or apartment.
Q: What are the normal qualifications to lease?
A: There are 4 common items found on the application. Job History/Income, Rental History, Criminal Background Check and Credit History.
Job History/Income: Most managers want you to have at least 6 months of employment history or school. They also want at least 3 times the rent of verifiable household income (before taxes). In most cases this is a combined total of every employed occupant. For example, a 2 bedroom renting for $700 requires a total income of at least $2100/month at 3 times the rent. Some income-qualified properties have a maximum limit as well. A "co-signor" will help with certain financial situations such as students and other situations.
Credit History: This varies from property to property, so ask us about your situation, and we will help you find the best option. We have apartments that work with repos, bankruptcies, foreclosures, etc.
Rental History: Many managers check your past 2 years of rental history. In some cases, a "co-signor" will help here as well. If you have a broken lease, we can still assist you. First time renters usually can get a place based on their employment and credit. In some cases, a co-signor may be helpful.
Criminal Background Check: Every property is going to do a full criminal background check for felonies and misdemeanors. Although about 98% of the properties in San Antonio will decline you if you have one, we know of the ones that will work with you. It all depends on the crime and how long ago it was.
Q: Can you find a place for my big dog?
A: Absolutely! Most apartments accept up to about 30 lb pets. However, we can find places that take up to 100 lb dogs! We also have communities that do not have a pet weight limit! You may have to pay an extra pet deposit; all depends on the exact size of your dog. Also, if you have an aggressive breed (pit bull, rottweiler, chow, etc.) we have homes for them as well.
