Many first time renters aren’t familiar with this term, and it often comes as a surprise that apartments look at your credit, income, public record and rental history before approving you!
RENTING WITH PETS
WE LOVE PETS! But not all apartments love pets ;-). Finding the perfect apartment for Fido can be tricky, especially if there is a Fido 1 & 2, or Fido a big boy! Pet Deposits, Pet Rent, Pet Fees and Pet Rules are all terms you will need to get familiar with if you are a pet owner and a renter.
SO Important, and not just for renting! Understanding credit will help you get ahead of the game in many areas of your life. Credit is a HUGE factor in getting approved for an apartment, so we’ll give you the 101 here.
2.5x or 3x Income. Most apartment look for their renters to make 2.5 – 3 times the rent to ensure that rent is paid. But that isn’t where bugeting for your rental ends. Deposits, fees, utiities, move-out cleaning … be ahead of the game when it comes to your total costs.
What’s in your lease? ALOT. And when you sign you are agreeing to all of it, so it’s good to fully understand the terminology and standard items included in a lease. Always read your lease in full, because whie there are standards, every lease is different.
Not all apartments accept cosigners, and the ones that do often have strict standards for the cosigner themselves. However, it’s a great way to help first time renters and often a staple in student renting.

Want the best advice, personalized for your apartment search?
Our apartment locators and apartment finders are your best source of knowledge for your personal rental situation. Educating yourself on the ins and outs of renting is important; but this is what we do every day! Rental market conditions, unit availability, qualifying criteria, even the names of apartments change daily. Specials come and go and renters often don’t know or don’t remember the right questions to ask.
Our apartment locators make sure that the apartments they present you work for your personal situation. They have access to all the latest specials, confirm the latest pricing and availability for you, and know which questions to ask to cover all your needs and wants in an apartment!
