Leasing FAQ

General FAQ

What are the benefits of renting with ResiHome?

At ResiHome, we make rental life easy and convenient. We professionally manage beautiful homes in great neighborhoods across the U.S and provide them at affordable rental prices. We offer our residents an easy-to-use, online portal to pay rent, submit maintenance requests, and view their resident accounts. Our residents maintain the home as their own, but we take care of those big maintenance issues so you don’t have to. Another bonus – we’re pet-friendly! Learn more here.

Are your homes new or renovated?

We offer our residents the opportunity to rent newly-constructed homes or newly renovated homes located in top neighborhoods and communities, including dedicated rental communities. You get to pick whichever suits you and your family best!

How do I find a home where I want to live?

Can I transfer from one ResiHome property to another?

Of course! That being said, you will have to go through the application process for approval to ensure that you financially qualify for the home. However, you won’t have to pay another application fee if you switch properties, so long as the transfer request is completed within 48 hours after receiving application approval.

Do you allow pets?

Yes, we love pets! Please note that pets are subject to approval and there is a one-time pet fee. View our Pet Restrictions >>

What does my holding fee cover?

Holding fees are taken on a first-come, first-serve basis. The first person to pay the holding fee takes the home off the market. Our homes go quickly, so don’t wait! *A holding fee only takes the home off the market for 30 days. The holding fee is fully refundable within the first 48 hours of payment.

What leasing fees are associated with renting a home?

If you have any additional questions about leasing fees, please contact the Leasing Agent associated with your property of interest.

When can I move into my home with ResiHome?

Is there an income requirement, or any other requirements to apply?

Yes. The gross monthly income of all leaseholder(s) will be considered jointly and should equal 3 times the rental rate of the home. View our Rental Qualifications>>

How important is my credit score in my application?

Although our decision is not solely based on credit, credit history should show that the resident has paid bills on time and does not have a history of debt write-offs or collection accounts. Any money owed to a previous landlord or to any utility company is cause for denial. Residency may also be denied due to poor credit history.  Click here for our list of qualifications >>

Do I have to have renters insurance to rent with ResiHome?

Yes! You are required to provide us with a copy of your Renters Insurance Declarations page, showing proof of coverage at your new address and showing ResiHome as Additional Insured, with a minimum of $100,000 in Liability Insurance. We also encourage you to get Personal Property Coverage as well for your personal belongings. A copy of your Renters Insurance will need to be provided to ResiHome every year at renewal.

What happens if my application is declined?

Unfortunately, we cannot discuss the nature of your denial.  Please contact Transunion at 888-710-0270 and reference your “Application through ResiHome.”

Yes, you can add a Co-Signer to your denied application, so long as the co-signer is making 4.5x the rent price and has a 600+ credit score.
