AT HOME LEASING 101
We understand that choosing a place to live is a big decision. That’s why we want to offer some answers to the questions most renters ask about At Home Apartments of St. Cloud.
The usual procedure would be to make an appointment for a tour at the property of your choosing (at least 24 hours in advance). Tour the available apartment, then apply online. Please allow at least 24 hours for application processing. We’ll contact you to schedule a lease signing appointment. Your security deposit will be due at the time of lease signing. We’ll contact you to schedule a key pick-up time. The first month’s rent will be due when you receive your keys.
At Home Apartments of St. Cloud does not discriminate against residents or prospective residents based on race, color, creed, religion, national origin, sex, marital status, disability, sexual orientation, or age. At Home Apartments does, however, require favorable credit, an unblemished criminal and previous housing background check and a monthly income three times the monthly rent. For more information contact a community directly and a leasing agent can answer any additional questions.
We ask that you contact the community you are interested in and we can then work with you to find the best time to fit both of our schedules.
We encourage you to stop by a community anytime to check it out; however, we do recommend appointments to ensure a leasing agent is available to meet with you. If you are interested in seeing a unit that is currently occupied, we may need to schedule your appointment for the next business day. We provide our current residents with 24-hour notice when showing their apartment or town home.
