Here are a few of the questions we're asked most often:
Do you offer an electronic way to pay the rent? Venmo!
Parking questions? Try SpotAngels free app. It's great. .
Where can I find the school catchment? https://webapps1.philasd.org/school_finder/ AND call the school directly. BTW a kindergarten spot is NOT guaranteed for all catchment children.
I'd like to rent a house with three friends. Phila Code states "no more than three unrelated adults may live in one unit without rooming house zoning." Zoning is by property, and that isn't ours. We cannot change the laws, and violating the zoning invalidates our licenses and everyone's insurance. So sorry.
Do you have a lot of turnover? Most tenants stay three or four years.
Is a piano okay? Sorry but no.
Do you accept animals? One animal per household, and there are rules such as existing animals only. We no longer accept pet dogs nor do we require pet rent or a pet deposit. We adhere to all animal laws, our insurance company's restrictions and use the Philadelphia Women's Humane Society* pet tenancy model. Even if just visiting, any animal must be in the lease, qualify, be an ADULT, house broken, spayed/neutered, trained and socialized standard domestic animal suited for urban living.
What are you looking for in a tenant? We rent historic single family houses (not apartments) and look for responsibility, excellent credit, the ability to pay the rent, good neighbors and understanding of the importance of curb appeal, safety and maintenance.
Any unanswered questions? Just let us know.
