The application process consists of proof of income, a credit check, rental history check, and a background check. Most properties will require you to make 3-times your monthly rent in gross income. For example, if the monthly rental rate is $1,500, you’ll need to make $4,500 a month before taxes. If this is your first time renting an apartment, you have poor credit, or you don’t make enough income to qualify, you’ll need to consider finding a co-signer or guarantor to help you get approved. Most properties we work with will not accept applicants with felonies or evictions on their records. Some properties work with less than great credit but may require an extra deposit of up to a month’s rent.
