Apartment Locating | FAQs

Is there a cost or fee for apartment locating I must pay?


No! You do not pay us, the property does! Our service is FREE to the one searching as long as we are listed as your referral source to receive compensation for our time. Agent/Locator: Arise Realty Group The above information must be on all two (2) of these: 1. Guest Card 2. Application




How do I get these apartment specials?


We have access to a database with over 639,000 properties where apartments will promote their specials. Specials change often and sometimes daily. We recommend touring no more than 30-45 days before your desired move date.




How soon should I start looking?


We always recommend looking as soon as you're ready to sign a lease or 30-45 days prior to moving. This will allow you to take advatange of current specials. Specials change often and sometimes daily. Also, many properties have "look and lease" specials and if you're not ready to sign a lease you could miss out this special when you are ready.




I was sent a list and the apartment community says the pricing has changed?


Yes, unfortunately this is very common. The apartment's pricing can change on a daily basis. This is why we recommend to begin looking when you're getting ready to sign a lease. Some properties will offer you a 24-72 hours grace period to make a decision to take advantage of their special promotion or pricing. Let us know when you plan on visiting and we will call ahead of time and speak to the property directly to confirm all details.




How do you get paid for your apartment locating service?


We ask that you list us as your referral source to receive compensation. Agent/Locator: Arise Realty Group The above information must be on all two (2) of these: 1. Guest Card 2. Application Thank you!




You claim to focus on Apartment Locating but I also saw you help people buy & sell?


Yes, That's correct! Many young professionals are looking to rent/lease before they purchase. We like to establish a relationship with all our clients from the start. Whether that is renting/leasing or buying/selling.




Do I go and tour the apartment communities on my own?


You can go tour the properties on your own or make an appoitment with us to go with you! Unlike many apartment locating agencies who only send you a list we also make ourselves available to tour apartments with you. We know how tough it can be sometimes to find "just the right place." Let us help you with taking some of the stress off in moving!




What do I need to qualify for an apartment?


- Income should be 3-4 times the rental market rate (before prorated special). - Proof of income (2 most recent check stubs or bank statements) - Offer letters / Transfer Letters are accetable as well - Some properties may require minimum six (6) months of job history Please Note: Let me know us you have any broken leases or credit concerns. We can find apartments or get the necessary information needed for you ahead of time at the start of our search.




How do I qualify for a moving credit?


When you begin your search with us you have two options. Option 1: You can choose to go alone and tour. You would qualify for a $50-200 moving credit depending on the property you choose. The day before your scheduled tour, your Showing Agent will call and verify availability and specials. An email will be sent to you with the tour information and next to each property you will see the rebate amount for that property. Your lease agreement needs to be a MINIMUM of 12-15 months at a participating Apartment Community who works with locators to qualify for the rebate. Option 2: you can have one of our experienced Showing Agents tour with you. The Showing Agent will tour each property with you. They will make sure to ask questions during your tour and point out anything that might be of concern. This option is not eligible for a moving credit.




How do I claim my moving credit?


Make sure you Mention & Write "Arise Realty Group" on all GUEST CARD(S) & APPLICATION(S). Referral Source: Agent/Locator: Arise Realty Group The above information must be on all two (2) of these: 1. Guest Card 2. Application Your lease agreement needs to be a MINIMUM of 12-15 months at a participating Apartment Community who works with locators to qualify for the moving credit. Without the above steps we will not receive compensation for the work we do our our time. If we get paid, so do you!




What if I see an apartment I like not on my List?


Let us know! We can send you move informaiton regarding the property. Sometimes a property does not "make the cut" for a varirty of reasons.
1. We have toured it ourselves and does not appear to be like the images.
2. Our clients gave us poor feedback.
3. The property's advertised pricing does not meet your requirements.
4. They do not work with locators. Let us know the name and we can give you feeback and send you more infromation about a property.




When can I expect my moving credit?


Depending if all the steps were followed under "how do I cliam my moving credit?", then the property will typically pay us between 60-180 days. Each property is different. If any steps were missed and they are unable to connect "Arise Realty Group" to your specific lease then nobody gets paid.




Does working with a locator affect my rental rate?


Not at all! The apartment communities pay locators from a desinagted advertising budget. In fact, working with a locator is often beneficial. We know how to make specials work for you and how to ask for the best rates.
