With rental availability throughout the metroplex, we can help you find that right place to call home for several months or several years.  Please contact us via email or phone to request an agent that can help start you in the right direction.  Additionally, if you have already found a home and would like to complete and application please visit our on-line application portal to begin.


STEP ONE: Figure out your housing budget.

Knowing your bottom-line rental costs is a good jumping-off point for your hunt. It will help you determine the type of place you should look for, be it a one-bedroom apartment or a four-bedroom single family home.

Also, be sure to budget for utilities. You can check with your area’s utility companies to get cost estimates based on zip code. We also have a complete list of those providers in our RESOURCE tab for quick reference. 

Don’t forget to factor in the price of renter’s insurance, which can help protect your belongings in the event of theft, fire or other disaster. Buying your renter’s policy from the same company as your car insurance policy can cut down on costs in some cases, too.

STEP TWO: Separate must-haves from nice-to-haves.

The list will be different for everyone, of course, and you’ll have to prioritize what you’re willing to pay more for and what you’re willing to sacrifice.

STEP THREE: Start your search

Now that you know how much you can afford and what you’re looking for in a home, where should you start your search? You’ve already made one step by visiting us!  Continue with our online property search tool or current in-house rental availability list.  Additional rental finder services may be of help as well along with friends or family referrals. 

STEP FOUR: Continue your search in person.

Contact us directly if there are properties you would like to visit in-person.  We can arrange showings throughout he entire DFW metroplex to help you find that right place.

STEP FIVE: Ask questions — and understand leasing terms

No question is too small our too big.  We strive to provide the best customer service and if you don’t know the answer then we haven’t done our job.  Our team is here to help at every turn.  Ask us questions, review our tenant application requirements online, as well as, our leasing agreement and let us know how we can help!
