Dear Applicant

Thank you for considering a home managed by Profit Realty. You are important to us. It is our hope and goal to offer you the best possible property management services. Please understand that legally we represent the owners at all times, but it is our goal to offer you the best living conditions we can. Granted some homes are very new and some are older homes.

Please be sure to visit the home before agreeing to rent the home. Please note that we do not like showing a home before it is move in ready. Some times a applicant will ask us to let them see a home before it is ready to be shown. In those situations there are times that there can be some confusion on what is getting repaired and what is not. The actual repair of a new move-in is subject to the owners willingness to have the work done. Profit Realty can only do so much, please ask if you are unsure and we will be able to answer your questions on what is being done and what can not be done at this time. But once you sign a lease you are obligated to fulfill your commitment.

Please call us if you need any help in selecting a new home. Here is our general rental criteria:


Three Years of Good Rental History

No forcible Entry & Detainers (evictions) unless you have verifiable documentation of landlord irresponsibility. However an FE&D due to property damage by resident will not be accepted under any circumstance.

No history of any damage to the residence, or an outstanding balance due to a previous landlord. If you have no prior rental history, then you must have a qualified Co-Signor – the Co-Signer MUST be a resident of Texas, have good credit history and be willing to sign the lease.

When a Co-Signor signs the lease, they are responsible for the rent just as you are. In the event of nonpayment / late payment, it will be reported on their credit report as well, and if the eviction process goes to court, they may be named in the suit as well.

Verifiable Gross Income

A Minimum of Three Times (3X) the Rent charged on the residence. Section 8 vouchers may / may not be accepted, depending on the individual owner. If section 8 is accepted, it will be noted in the listing. The resident must meet the same criteria as those seeking non-subsidized housing.

If self employed, 2 years of signed income tax returns or 3 months of personal bank statements may be used to prove income.  We verify tax returns with the IRS.
