For Renters

Are you Ready?

Let's find the right home for you

I know searching for a home can seem like a lot of work. When you work with me, I do all of the heavy lifting to make the process as smooth as possible for you.

Here’s what they had to say…

I was so nervous and had so many questions but Angel was there to answer my questions every step of the way. She had great turn around time with scheduling showings of rental properties and was available to answer questions 24/7. Couldn’t have asked for a better realtor!

Initial Consultation

This is usually done over the phone or through text or email. I will send you a link for an application so I learn more about what you are looking for.

Property Search

Based on your criteria, I will search for available rental properties that meet your requirements. I'll provide you with listings, including details such as rent amount, lease terms, amenities, and property features.

Viewing Properties

I will schedule property viewings for the rental properties that interest you. I'll accompany you to the showings, answer any questions you have about the properties, and provide guidance on evaluating each option.

Application Process

Once you've found a rental property you're interested in, your I will assist you in completing the rental application. This may involve providing personal and financial information, such as proof of income, employment verification, and references.

Lease Agreement

Once your application is approved, you'll sign a lease agreement with the landlord. 

Deposit & Fees

You'll typically be required to pay a security deposit and any applicable fees, such as first month's rent, pet deposits, or move-in fees.

Move In Inspection

Before moving into the rental property, you'll typically conduct a move-in inspection to document the condition of the property. Any existing damage or issues will be noted on a move-in inspection checklist to avoid disputes when you move out.

End of Lease

As your lease term approaches its end, I can assist you in evaluating your options, whether it's renewing the lease, finding a new rental property, or transitioning to homeownership.

About Renting Real Estate in the Chicago Suburbs?

Every landlord will have their own requirements. Before we go to see any home, I will reach out to the listing agent to confirm that you meet the requirements. Most landlords have a credit score and/or income requirement. 

Most leases are 1 year long. However, landlords often like when a renter is willing to sign a longer lease. They do not typically like to do shorter leases.

When renting an apartment, it is common for most utilities to be included, as well as snow removal and lawn maintenance. If you are renting a condo or townhome with an HOA, it is also common to have snow removal and lawn maintenance included. Typically when renting a single family home there is nothing additional included. When you find a rental you are interested, this is information we can discuss before you see the property.

Many landlord’s do require rental insurance. However, even if it is not required it can be a good idea to get anyway. If something happens to the home, the landlord’s homeowner’s insurance only covers the cost of the home itself. Having your own renter’s insurance can help cover the cost of your belongings in the case of theft or fire or water damage to the home.
