2012 Denver Colorado Renter Guide

Courtesy of the Apartment Association of Metro Denver is the 2012 Denver Colorado Renter Guide.  It is especially helpful for young and first time renters, or those that haven’t rented an apartment in Denver for quite some time.

Click Here for the full article.

Apartment GuyZ usually gets these questions from renters so please call for clarification.  The 2012 Colorado Renter Resource Guide is also a great source of clarification for these typical renter questions.

Q:  How much rent can I afford?

A:  30% of your income is typically what Denver landlords feel you can afford.  It isn’t necessarily what you want to pay, or what you should pay, but is a good guideline when assessing neighborhoods and a personal rental budget.

Q:  What do Denver landlords look for when qualifying renters?

A:  Denver landlords typically run a credit, eviction, and criminal background search.  Tenant screening companies have made running criminal background and eviction checks on renters accessible to all Denver landlords that if you are felon and in many cases have a misdemeanor you will run into difficulty.  If you felony is over 8 years old and misdemeanor over 3 years Apartment Guyz may be able to match you up with a landlord that will accept you.

Q:  How much of a deposit can a Denver landlord ask for?

A:  Denver Colorado has no restrictions on what a landlord can ask for a deposit.  Private landlords typically ask for one month’s rent, but it can be more.  Apartment communities are typically a more affordable option as Denver apartment deposits usually range from $99-$400.  Landlords can charge extra deposits to renters with credit issues.

Q:  How do I rent an apartment without a job?

A:  This is a very good question often asked by renters moving to Denver in order to attend school or find a job.  Some landlords will require that you have enough savings to cover the rent if you do not make 2.5 to 3 times rent for monthly income.  Others may want a co-signer.  More may just say no.  Best option if you are relocating to Denver for a job or school is to call Apartment Guyz as you can be pointed to landlords that will work with your particular situation.

Renting is one of the most stressful parts of moving to a new city.  Being a well informed renter will help you make good decisions, ensure you are treated fairly, and know how to resolve issues should a problem arise.  Apartment Guyz have been assisting Denver renters for 12 years and can be one of the most valuable resources to a renter moving to Denver.  Rent better, call Apartment Guyz.

Having Property in Denver

In Colorado, Denver is a highly preferred living location. It is also viewed as a good option for real estate property investment. Owning rental properties can be a challenge since it demands lot of time, money, and energy in maintenance. And when you are spending so much you deserve high return on investment. You can get this with good renters. Here, Apartment Guyz can help property owners find good renters in Denver. Being highly experienced in the real estate industry and a BBB A+ rated agency, Apartment Guyz aids in increasing the value of your property.

Market Value of Property

In order to get high market value, you need to invest in a property located in well-developed areas. Good location and nicely developed areas will get you good and potential renters. Lesser developed areas charge lower rent amounts since they provide fewer facilities to the renters. You need to check the rent prices of nearby apartment and properties to get an idea of ongoing rent rates in the area. Apartment Guyz can help you with this search and rate inquiries. We can guide you to properties that can earn better return on investment from the market.

Be Aware About Cost and Return

When investing in any property, one more thing to look for is renovation. If you end up investing in a property that has lot of repair expenses then it can diminish your desired profits. At Apartment Guyz, we can help you find properties that are well maintained where you don’t have to spend on renovations or repairs.

Utilization of Property

When you invest in a property you need to be sure of “why”. Are you buying it to self-occupy it or do you want to lease it out. If you want to lease it then you need to do it ASAP to start your return on investment. Leaving the property vacant for longer time will only hurt your investment. Apartment Guyz can help you lease out your property quickly with less hassles.

Screen Potential Tenants

If you are planning to look for tenants on your own then do keep in mind that you have to screen them as well. But at Apartment Guyz we take care of this headache. We screen potential tenants for their credit history, rental history, criminal history, their workplace, number of adults that would occupy the property, etc. We make sure that you do not end up having tenants that have evictions or felonies against their names.

Housing Rules

Each city and housing community has its own set of housing rules. When you lease out your property you need to communicate these to the tenant. Not doing so can hurt your property lease. We at Apartment Guyz maintain all the required information on housing rules. We keep ourselves updated with housing rules of different housing communities. So if you get your property listed with us, we can find you renters who are suitable for these rules and who agree. This makes leasing easy and transparent for you and the tenant.

For help and a free landlord consultation please call Apartment Guyz today or contact us.

Littleton Apartment Rates Soar

An influx of young professionals to the Denver Metro area and lack of construction has caused rental rates to soar, especially in Littleton.

If you consider that we are finally getting back to rental rates seen 10 years ago at the start of the recession it looks like a good indicator that the economy is rebounding.

For renters that got used to paying unusually low rental rates it feels like the market is worsening.

Apartment Guyz has gotten hundreds of calls from renters whose rent is being raised $150-$400 monthly. That’s a significant increase and usually forces a move.

There are still rental deals available, and that’s where Apartment Guyz’s expertise comes in. If you are new to the Denver metro area and looking to move to a suburb like Littleton, Englewood, or Centennial, give us a ring. You’ll be glad you did.

Renters build your credit fast!

Denver apartment managers don’t require mass quantities of good credit, but your credit score can affect the quality of the community you qualify for.  If you are wondering what type of credit you need to get a nice apartment, approximately 640 and up will get you just about anything, and 540 and up can be worked on case by case.  It’s easier to rent an apartment than to go to the bank for a loan because factors like income, criminal record, and rental history affect how lenient the manager will be with your credit score.  Apartment Guyz knows the questions to ask you and will use that information to the right manager.

If you want to build your credit fast though, I used Orchard Bank to help me rebuild my credit fast and it worked.  It’s not a paid advertisement, just a link to the website for a company I use and trust.  Use whatever card service, I’m not sure it matters, just ensure they report to all three credit bureaus.

I trashed my credit in my youth and spent the next 5 years paying it off.  After 7 years the negative lines dropped off but I didn’t start using credit again for another year.  When it came time for me to rent an apartment for myself, I had difficulty getting approved at the apartments in Denver I advertise for.  I needed credit fast, and a nice place to live.
I found a secured card that reported to all 3 credit bureaus.  After about 6 months my credit was up to a 640 from 570, pretty much good enough to get any apartment rental in the Metro area.  After 12 months they converted it to unsecured and gave me my deposit back.  I then got a Chase card with 0 interest for 18 months and started using that like a debit card.  I paid just about the entire balance off monthly, but always left a small balance.
After the initial 6 months I did some other things to push my score into the 700’s, including getting 2 department store cards from Target and Dillards.
I’m not a credit expert, but have a lot of good and bad experience and this is what worked for me.  If you need to repair or build credit start now.  If you need an apartment before your credit is repaired, call Apartment Guyz.
