What's Next

I'm a Realtor, licensed in the state of Florida, primarily working in Palm Beach County. I preface with this to let you know that the process can be different in other areas.

Here's the general process for Palm Beach County, FL:

Once I have all of the information, we will start our search. The goal is to be purposeful and intentional. We will see a few properties, then submit a "Contract to Lease". The CTL is a document that is like an offer on a home. The rental price IS negotiable, but not always recommended, depending on the demand on the property.

After the offer is accepted, the equivalent of one month's rent (in the form of a cashier's check or money order) will collected and the lease will be signed by you and the landlord.

The remaining funds will be due on moving day (whichever day was chosen according to the lease). These funds will also need to be in the form of a money order or cashier's check. You will receive your keys as well. 

Each transaction is different and may not follow these steps.

Frequently Asked Questions

How Do We Pay You?

We get paid out of the deal. The landlord pays our commission. There is no extra cost for you.

What other money do I need to have?

As mentioned above, each deal is different. Here are some possible other fees associated with rentals:
  • Application Fee
  • Credit Check
  • Background Check
  • Pet Fee
  • HOA Association Fee

Can we use a Realtor for an apartment complex?

Yes! Most complexes will give a Realtor a referral fee for an apartment complex. If you've been working with a Realtor, let them know that you're interested in complexes as well, so they can get paid for their time, regardless of where you move.

When should I start looking?

You can start whenever you want. However most places are unaware of what vacancies they will have several months out and some will not know until the last thirty days. Expect to see an influx of options during the last thirty days before you want to move, but competition will also increase.
