Prospective tenants and their parents often ask us how long it takes to go through the rental process. We tell them it is entirely up to them how quickly things move along. Simply stated, the ball is in their court. We will not chase groups down looking for the information we need to make a rental decision. We evaluate completed applications when they are submitted to us. This means all the information from all members of the group is in our hands. Once we have all the information from all members of the group we can usually have an acceptance or denial in about one week. Once a group is accepted it takes about one more week to sign the lease and collect payments that are due. At that point the unit is officially reserved for the lease term.
Prospective tenants will also ask how long they have to get all the information to us. We tell everyone…”Zach is an engineer, not a sales guy…so move at your own pace. If you want to move slowly that is fine, just be aware that we fill up very quickly as we offer a great place to live that is so close to campus!” We suggest if they are truly interested they act as quickly as possible. If they decide to take it slowly we tell them they will likely end up on the waiting list.
