Our Rental Process
Step 1 - Find a Home
This is the fun part of looking for a new home. Most of our homes are currently listed on Zillow, Trulia, and apartments.com, but if you want to know if there is upcoming availability please reach out to Lisa directly.
Step 2- Schedule a Viewing
Found a High Five Property apartment you are interested in?
Step 3 - Rental Applicant Screening
First, what kind of renter are you?
In general there are two kinds of rental applicants: financially and non financially responsible adults. Both kinds of adults (age 18 or older) will need to go through the screening process but different applications are required. Screening criteria for renters is defined in detail to the right.
Second, reach out to Lisa for an application.
Each adult (age 18 or older) that will be living in the rental will need to fill out the appropriate application and start their screening process. You will be asked to pay a one time credit check fee per applicant.
Step 4 - Sign Leasing Documents
At this point, you have seen the rental, confirmed what kind of applicant you are, contacted Lisa for all your application and screening paperwork, and paid screening fees.
Lisa has advised you if you want this rental, then it’s yours. Hooray!
It’s time to sign the leasing paperwork and make payments for deposits and first month’s rent. Time to get ready for moving and getting those rental keys.
Step 5 - Move In
It’s time to move on in. Congratulations on your new rental. Make sure to setup your utilities in your name if applicable. High fives all around.
Renter Screening Criteria
You are an adult (age 18 or older) and will be paying rent or splitting the rent that means you are a financially responsible applicant.
You are an adult (age 18 or older) but will not be paying rent or splitting the rent thus you are a non-financially responsible applicant.

My household worked with Lisa to apply for and maintain the current home we are renting and I was absolutely wonderful. We were looking for a home at the start of quarantine and she helped us so much with figuring everything out. She was incredible to work with and managed communications with the owners and maintenance requests promptly and with grace. We hope to work with her more in the future!

10/10 Lisa at High Five Properties is the best property management I’ve ever worked with. Always timely with answers to questions and addressed maintenance issues immediately. If you have the option to rent from her- do it. Honest, reliable, and fair- qualities in property management companies that are far too rare these days!
