Frequently Asked Questions by Future Tenants

Here you will find our most commonly asked questions for renting our properties.

Section 8:

Yes, we accept Section 8 at all of our properties. You must meet our credit criteria of at least a 660 credit score. If your voucher does not cover the full amount of rent you will need to provide proof of income that is 3xs the amount of rent not covered (Example: rent is $2000 per month and your voucher is for $1800 per month. You will need to show proof of income for $600 per month) Below is the process for processing Section 8 vouchers.

  1. Please make sure that your voucher falls within the parameters of the home you would like to rent (number of bedrooms, etc).  Also, please inquire about our income and credit requirements. Once this is verified, fill out an application on our website and schedule an appointment to drop off your DHA paperwork at our office for completion.
  2. Please note that we only accept one DHA applicant per property at a time. If we already have a DHA applicant, we will ask you not to submit DHA paperwork, but just fill out an application and we will put you on a waitlist for the said property.
  3. Once the paperwork is filled out, you will receive a call from our office to pick up the paperwork and submit it to DHA.
  4. We are not able to hold property through the Section 8 process. We can only hold the property once the property has passed the DHA inspection.
  5. DHA will call to set up an inspection.  Once we hear from DHA that the inspection has cleared, then we will send you a lease.  The lease and security deposit is due within 24 hours of the lease being sent to you.
  6. If DHA does not approve the property due to Rent Reasonability, they will contact us to see if the owner will lower the price.  If the owner declines, then unfortunately we are unable to offer a lease.

If you meet the minimum criteria for the home we will reach out to schedule an in-person showing. We request an application be completed and prospective tenants meet our minimum criteria before viewing our homes as most of our homes are occupied. This helps to limit the person-to-person contact and ensures qualified applicants are viewing our homes. All of our homes have a virtual tour that can be viewed by clicking “Virtual Tour” under the desired listing. Although not recommended we may be able to schedule a showing before completing an application if the home is listed as available now. If you are interested in this option please email and include the property address and the date and time you would like to see the home.
