You must understand that Metro Atlanta is probably the hottest place to live in the entire country right now! Obviously you know that because you’re here, right? We are currently at 125% occupancy for rentals in Atlanta. Landlords are very choosy about who they rent to. The average property rents in less than 20 days. Most lease the same week, or even the same day they are advertised.
“Our goal at Quicksilver Realty is not just to help you find a home in the price range and neighborhood you want, but to help ensure YOUR application is the one the landlord will select in our competitive rental market.”
We manage many rental homes and if we don’t have what you’re looking for then we will help you search for the right home. Here is what we require from every client we work with to ensure you’ll have the very best chance at leasing the property of your choice:
- Gather proof of income. You will need actual copies of pay stubs, offer letter for a new job with start dates and pay, last year’s tax return if you’re self employed, and a bank statement if you’re relying on cash reserves. Most landlords want to see that you make at least 3 times the monthly rent. (Required of all applicants over 18)
- A legible copy of your driver’s license. (Required of all applicants over 18)
- Complete and sign the Georgia Association of Realtors Residential Rent Application.
- Prepare to get certified funds-money order or cashier’s check to pay the deposit (and pet deposit if needed) when we find the right place. It is usually equal to 1 month’s rent.
