Frequently Asked Questions FAQ

Apartment Locator Faq

Below you will find valuable information about our company and how we can help you find an apartment today.

Feel free to explore our FAQ section at Prestige Realty, the leading apartment locator in The Valley, for any information or queries you might have.

I have bad credit. Can you still help me find an apartment?

Yes!  That is what we specialize in.  We have apartments that work with bad credit, past rental judgments, and some criminal background. Once we run our own rental screening, we will know the apartment options we can show you.

I’m a first time renter. Can you still rent to me?

Of course. First time renters and no credit situations is better than bad credit. We have plenty of apartments that can work with 1st time renters. If you have verifiable income and make at least 2.5x the monthly rent, we have apartment options for you.

Do you help people find apartments with a criminal record?

Criminal backgrounds are a tough situation. When it comes to felony charges, you need to be off probation and the charge must be at least 7 years old from the disposition dates. Only recent felonies that may be workable would-be DUI felony and Marijuana possession.  For felonies that are 7 years old or over, we have apartment options for you. We CAN NOT work on any sex crimes.

When it comes to misdemeanors this is a different situation as we have plenty of apartments in our network that can work with a misdemeanor.  Recent misdemeanors are ok.  The older the better.

Our inventory changes often, it doesn’t hurt to see what apartment options we have for you.  Fill out a free survey sheet.

I have multiple broken leases and rental judgments can you still help me?

YES. However, the more broken leases, evictions, and rental judgments you have the less options you have. You will be charged a higher security deposit. Expect a higher deposit of 2.5x your rental amount.

If your rental judgment is less than a year old, please call us. We do occasionally have apartments that allow rental judgments under a year, but these are rare.
