The Rental Application Process

Renting a home with Eaton Realty is easy!

​​​​​​​Once you've found the home you're interested in renting, contact us to confirm its availability. Review our Resident Selection Criteria, then complete the online application using the Apply Now button on the property page.

1. APPLY

To submit an application, search for the home you are interested in and apply directly from the listing page using the "Apply Now" button next to the map.

Before you start the application, gather the following supporting documentation which you'll upload as part of the process:
[Pro-Tip: We recommend the Genius Scan app (iOS / Android) to quickly "scan" documents with your smart phone.]

  • Paystub(s) for the past 60 days for each wage-earning applicant. Alternatively, a W2, or for new jobs, a verification of salary on company letterhead. If you're self-employed, provide the most recent year's tax return and a P&L statement for the past 12 months.
  • Most recent 60-days of asset verification. This should be in the form of bank statements showing account balances in checking accounts, savings accounts, etc., for the past two months. (Tip: Login into your bank's website and download PDF's directly.) Tenants are required to show at least 3x monthly rent via bank assets.
  • Copies of each applicant's Government-issued ID (driver's license). It often works best to take a photo and email the image to yourself or use Genius Scan to ensure the ID is legible.

Other documentation that may be required:

  • If you're currently renting, a Rental Verification form completed by your current landlord. Once you complete your application, we'll send you an email from DocuSign for your current landlord to complete.
  • If you have pets, complete a pet application at PetScreening.com.

2. approval

Once you have submitted your application and documentation, we will, for each applicant:

  • Obtain a credit report with score and payment history
  • Run a nation-wide criminal background check
  • Verify employment
  • Review rental history
  • Ensure your income exceeds 2x your monthly expenses. Expenses include all monthly payments to credit cards, loans, mortgages, plus your new rent amount.
Application Approval

3. move in

Congratulations!

  • Once your application is approved, we will have the lease prepared and sent to you via email. You'll sign the lease electronically and then sign in to our RentVine portal to pay your deposit and any required fees.
  • We'll email you with instructions each step of the way. We'll also provide you with links and phone numbers for utility and community information.
  • Finally, we'll meet you at your new home to deliver keys, and orient you with the home's various systems and features.

    If you need to move quickly and choose one of our currently available homes, we can rush the entire application process and check you into your new home in as little as 24 hours!
