Tenant Application Steps

Interested in Completing A Tenant Application?

Ready to fill out a tenant application?  Completing the tenant application process for a rental home has never been easier! Our process is done online using state-of-the art property management software.  This way, if you’re interested in our tenant application process, you can do it from the comfort of your own home!  Also, if you are viewing a property, our leasing consultants carry Ipads so you can complete the tenant application process on the spot!  This way, you don’t risk missing out on the home or your dreams!

Because we want you to be happy with your new home, it is important that you view the property in-person as part of the tenant application process.  This ensures that the property meets your needs and is everything you expected it to be.  When you are viewing a property, be sure to pay special attention to room sizes and layout because everyone’s needs are different.  Keep in mind your furniture style and size to make sure that the property has the space you will need for your personal belongings.  It’s also a good idea to bring all decision-makers to the showing.  This ensures that all parties are on the same page.  Doing separate showings can be difficult especially if the property is currently occupied.  If you have questions about the property, be sure to ask the Leasing Consultant at the time of the showing.

For our tenant application process, we welcome all applicants and support the precepts of equal access and ‘Fair Housing.’ Real-Time Leasing will not refuse access to any housing, accommodation, or other interest in property or otherwise discriminate against an applicant on the basis of age, sex, race, religion, marital or familial status, physical or mental handicap, color, creed, ethnicity, national origin or sexual orientation.
