Frequently asked questions...
Questions you might ask a Houston apartment locator
WILL I PAY HIGHER RENT FOR USING YOUR SERVICE?
Absolutely not. You will receive the same move-in specials and rental rates whether you use my service or deal directly with the properties.
WHAT'S THE BENEFIT OF USING YOUR SERVICE?
There are over 4,000 apartment communities in the greater Houston area. No need for you to make countless phone calls and read every ad on the planet. Let us save you time, money and hassles by matching what you want with current availability and specials.
HOW CAN YOU OFFER YOUR SERVICE AT ABSOLUTELY NO COST TO ME?
The apartment communities' budgets include allocations to pay locators expenses. Our commissions are paid from that budget and is less expensive to them than having a vacant unit. When you lease your apartment, please remember to select "locator service" or "apartment locator" and add Tammy with Findit Apartment Locators as how you heard about the property. This is how I get credit for my work.
WHICH APARTMENTS DO YOU WORK WITH?
We work with about 99% of the apartments in the greater Houston area.
HOW MUCH ARE THE SECURITY DEPOSITS ON APARTMENTS?
They usually range from $100.00 - $500.00. There will also be an application fee which usually ranges from $25.00 - $75.00. Most apartment communities now charge a non-refundable admin. fee, as well.
WHAT TERM OF LEASES DO THE APARTMENTS OFFER?
The average lease term is 6 or 12 months. Some apartments offer 3 month leases but there is an additional monthly charge. If you are needing a month to month lease, I have fully furnished corporate apartments.
CAN I HAVE A DOG OR CAT IN MY APARTMENT?
Most apartments will allow a pet but have a limit on how many pets they will allow in the apartment. If your pet is larger than 20 pounds, let me know and I will give you only those apartments that will allow a large pet. You will have to pay a pet deposit and part of the deposit is usually non-refundable. Some properties also require pet rent, which is usually around $25 per month.
WHAT IF I HAVE A BROKEN LEASE, EVICTION OR FELONY?
There are very few properties that I have found that will work with these issues, so it helps to have an apartment locator assist. If you have a past broken lease or eviction, most will require you to have a zero balance or have established good rental history since the eviction or broken lease. For the handful of properties I have found that will work with a felony, most want it to be over 10 years old and non-violent nature. However, if you think you have a qualifying issue, please let me know and I will do my best to find properties that offer second chances.
