We typically offer a 12-month lease, but depending on the time of year shorter terms may be offered or available.
All prospective residents who are over the age of 18 must complete a rental application form. Two years of positive housing history, verifiable monthly income of at least 3 times the monthly rent, a credit score of 600 plus, and a background history to review for felonies, evictions, or bankruptcies in the past 7 years are required.
The security deposit is equal to one month's rent. $300 of this is paid at the time of application (as earnest money), along with a $7.50 per adult applicant non-refundable credit check fee. Earnest money is applied towards the total refundable security deposit upon execution of the lease agreement.
Rent and fees are due on the first of each month.

Theft of property, such as stolen electronics or missing packages, damage from smoke, lightning, windstorms, or hail, vandalism to your property, water damage, liability for bodily injury to other persons, etc.
To protect you from a variety of accidents and losses, especially the very expensive ones we see almost every year. For example, a resident accidentally released the fire sprinkler valve in their unit and caused $40,000 in damage to their belongings, their apartment, their neighbor’s apartment, and the common areas in their building. Fortunately, this resident had renters insurance, and the damages were covered by their policy instead of out of their pocket.
Simply add the policy with the company that holds your vehicle insurance, or call the insurance agent (or agency) of your choice. If you don’t have a preferred insurance provider you’re encouraged to consider ResidentInsure. All of our properties are pre-approved for coverage so you can sign up in less than five minutes. Visit residentinsure.com to get started.
Per our lease agreement, all residents without insurance on their move-in day will be added to our master policy and the charge of $15 for renters insurance coverage will be added to your account. Once we have proof of independent coverage we’ll remove you from the master policy.
Most policies cost $15 or less per month. This small monthly bill can protect you from accidents that could end up costing you tens of thousands of dollars in damages.
