1) How do I make an appointment to view a property?
It’s easy! Most of our available properties are available for self tours. Just stop by one of our offices at least an hour before closing and bring your photo ID and $20 cash for a key deposit.

We are available six days a week!

Rent is due on the 1st of each month and we allow a grace period extending to the 5th of each month. If you pay rent after the end of the business day on the 5th, you will be charged an administrative late fee of $40. If you pay rent after the 15th the late fee is $80.

During the initial application process and move-in we require payment by money order or cashier’s check only.
