Q: Are your apartment locating services really FREE?
A: Absolutely! Texas Relocation Experts is 100% FREE to you and does not affect your monthly rent or specials. In fact by using our service, we may be able to find you unadvertised specials that you probably would not be aware of. Plus, in addition to your move-in specials you will receive a FREE U-Haul truck rental on the day of your move!
Q: If your service is FREE, how are you compensated?
A: We are paid a commission from the apartment owner that you choose to lease from out of their advertising budget. Just remember to write: "Texas Relocation Experts" and your agents name on the guest card and lease application that you choose.
Q: How can Texas Relocation Experts help me locate my apartment?
A: First, we'll save you a considerable amount of time, especially if you are new to the area. Not only do we know the apartment communities but we also know the pros and cons of living in different areas of San Antonio. Second, we will save you money. We save you gas and keep you from spinning your wheels needlessly. Also, many times we can negotiate move-in specials even when one is not being offered. Third, we save you mental stress and hassles. Apartment searching is always more successful when someone who is knowledgeable about the area is helping.
Q: How soon should I start looking?
A: You will probably want to get serious about looking 4-6 weeks before your move-in date. However, we can help you at any time even if you need to move today! Since most residents do not give notice until 30 days before they move out, you have to act fast once they do. Many of these units will be gone within days of giving notice, because San Antonio has about a 95% occupancy rate.
Q: How fast can you find the perfect property for me?
A: We might already know about the perfect place for you! Since we are constantly searching the San Antonio rental market for our customers, we have the most current availability. We have even helped people move-in the very same day they started looking. Even if you are not in San Antonio, we can help you lease an apartment by fax without having to view it in person. We can email you detailed property information complete with pictures and floor plans from our state-of-the-art database to help you make a better decision on your new home or apartment.
Q: What are the normal qualifications to lease?
A: There are 4 common items found on the application. Job History/Income, Rental History, Criminal Background Check and Credit History.
Job History/Income: Most managers want you to have at least 6 months of employment history or school. They also want at least 3 times the rent of verifiable household income (before taxes). In most cases this is a combined total of every employed occupant. For example, a 2 bedroom renting for $700 requires a total income of at least $2100/month at 3 times the rent. Some income-qualified properties have a maximum limit as well. A "co-signor" will help with certain financial situations such as students and other situations. Credit History: This varies from property to property, so ask us about your situation, and we will help you find the best option. We have apartments that work with repos, bankruptcies, foreclosures, etc.
