The general rule of thumb to lease in Florida is that income should be 3x the monthly rent. Therefore, if rent is 2,000/month income should be around 6,000/month or $72,000/year total occupants' income. We also take into consideration retirement, disability, child support, etc. into the household monthly income.
In situations where the tenant/tenants do not make 3x the monthly rent, we do consider co-applicants. Co-applicants should also complete an application indicating their status as co-applicant and the names of the applicants intending to reside in the property.
Income requirements are not as stringent for tenants with guaranteed rental payments, such as section 8 vouchers or other types of guaranteed payment (student loans, parents, etc.) and are guidelines to help tenants budget for other expenses.
Proof of income, along with photo ids for all adult applicants and co-applicants are to be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org
Proof of income includes tax returns, bank statements, pay stubs, letters of employment, disability checks, etc.
For more information please complete an application at the blue link below.
We consider all applicants on a first come first served basis and do not charge any background or application fees.
We do consider prior evictions, bankruptcies, credit issues, multiple pets, lack of prior rental experience, certain criminal charges, out of state applicants, etc. on a case by case basis and welcome all applicants.
Why do I fill out an application before touring the home?
Scarily, there are scammers and fake accounts with ill intent trying to schedule in person live tours. There are also people claiming to meet income requirements who are not remotely close. Therefore, in order to determine real people, serious and qualified inquiries only, a completed application (online, brief and no fees to the applicant) along with photo identification must be received before scheduling an in person tour.
Virtual tours and numerous photographs are available and driving by the property and exploring the neighborhood in advance is encouraged.

*All occupants over 18 must complete an application.
