We do it differently

Transparent and Fair. Always. 

Please review our application screening criteria below to understand how we evaluate incoming applications.

  • How much does it cost to move in?
    Move-In Costs are dependent on each property, but as a general guideline: 1. A security deposit is required to move in. This is equal to one month's rent and is up to 80% refundable. 2. An administrative income will be charged once an applicant has been approved and added to a lease. This will be a $100 one-time fee and covers the application and move-in process. 3. Rent for the month you move in will be prorated to the date the lease starts. 4. If the resident has an animal(s), an initial deposit of 25% of rent will be due. The resident will also need to provide animal insurance. Per our quarterly property inspections, if there is major damage from an animal, the resident may be subject to pay up to a full deposit. Deposits (security and animal) and administrative fee are due upon signing the lease. Prorated Rent is not due until move-in, but must be paid prior to receiving keys.
  • Do you allow pets?
    While the animal policy varies based on the property, the majority of our properties are designed to be welcoming to animals. Rather than implementing an additional monthly fee, we adopt a different approach by collecting an initial non-refundable animal deposit equal to 25% of the rental rate. This deposit ensures that both parties are protected. During our routine quarterly property inspections, if we observe significant damage caused by the animal, the resident may be liable to pay the full deposit for the necessary repairs. To further safeguard both the resident and the property, we require animal insurance.
  • How far out can we move in?
    To ensure a smooth rental process, applicants are expected to move in within one Friday from the availability date specified in the advertisement. In the event that an applicant is unable to meet this timeline, or another applicant can move in sooner, their application may be deferred. However, it's important to note that exceptions can be considered if the listing includes multiple available units. Additionally, our move-in schedule follows a convenient pattern: move-ins take place on Fridays, while move-outs are scheduled for Mondays. This arrangement allows for efficient transitions and helps streamline the move-in and move-out procedures for all parties involved.
  • Can I put a deposit to hold the property?
    We do not allow holding deposits. The best way to help secure the property is to apply as soon as possible. We will then review based off our Applicant Screening Criteria, starting in the order we receive.
  • Is the application process first-come, first-served?
    Take a look at our linked Application Screening Process.
  • Can I wait to sign the lease?
    Upon approval of your application, we provide prompt service by sending out leases and portal access within one business day. We expect approved applicants to fulfill their commitment by promptly paying the required deposit(s) and administrative fee upon signing the lease. It's important to note that during this period, the listing remains syndicated to various marketing sites, indicating its availability until the lease is fully signed. This approach ensures transparency and allows for continued marketing until all necessary paperwork is completed.
  • Do you accept Section 8 Housing?
    We accept Section 8 Housing and Bear River Association of Governments (BRAG). Reach out for specific details regarding another organization.
  • What if my credit score is low?
    At our company, we understand that each application is unique and deserves careful consideration. We evaluate applications on a case-by-case basis while adhering to our established standards as outlined in the Application Screening Criteria. This approach allows us to maintain fairness and consistency while also considering individual circumstances and qualifications.
  • When will I know a decision on my application?
    Applications are processed within 1-3 business days. Upon submitting your application, we provide you with timely updates regarding your position in the review queue. For more details, please review our Application Screening Process at the top of this page.
  • What are your management fees?
    We collect a commission of 10% on the rent collected. In the event that a tenant pays only half of their rent, our commission is calculated as 10% of that half. Once the remaining half is paid, we collect our commission on the full amount.
  • How often do you inspect the property?
    Our dedicated maintenance team conducts quarterly inspections to ensure your property receives careful attention. This proactive approach ensures optimal condition, providing you with peace of mind and preserving its long-term value.
  • Do you perform any maintenance?
    We have a dedicated maintenance team that provides basic maintenance and diagnostic services, and for complex issues, we have an extensive network of vendors to cater to all maintenance requirements.
  • What services does your company provide?
    Our company provides an all-inclusive suite of services to meet your property needs. From strategic property marketing and tenant placement to ongoing tenant assistance, maintenance and upkeep scheduling, and regular quarterly inspections, we ensure comprehensive support for all our properties.
  • Do we allow animals in the properties?
    While we ultimately respect owners' decision-making authority, we highly recommend embracing an animal-friendly approach. Experience has shown that even non-animal-friendly properties tend to attract tenants with emotional support animals (ESAs), resulting in potential damages without the protection of an animal deposit. By allowing animals, we increase the likelihood of attracting responsible tenants who are willing to pay an additional deposit. Moreover, it grants us greater control over which animals are permitted within the property, ensuring a more secure and well-managed environment.
  • How do you screen residents?
    Our applicant screening process is designed to carefully evaluate prospective residents for our rental properties. We employ a comprehensive screening procedure that includes thorough background checks, credit assessments, employment verification, rental history analysis, and even references. By assessing these factors, we ensure that we select residents who demonstrate financial stability, a positive rental track record, and a responsible approach to their obligations.
  • How much will my property rent for?
    To determine the rental price for an owner's property, we conduct a thorough market analysis. This involves considering factors such as location, size, amenities, and current market trends. We also review comparable rental properties in the area to gauge appropriate pricing. Our aim is to find a balance between attracting potential residents and maximizing the owner's rental income. Taking the owner's goals into account, we provide expert advice and recommendations to set a competitive and fair rental price.
  • How will you market my property?
