General Information

  • Appliances are furnished in every residence.  These include a stove, refrigerator and, in most cases, a dishwasher.  Each house is provided with a washer and dryer at no additional cost.  Apartment buildings have a pay laundry facility within the complex.
  • Our policy is NO PETS! We really like pets, just not in our rental houses and apartments.  We mean no pets—not for an hour, a day, or overnight.  Fish are fine.
  • Unless indicated on the lease, lawn care is provided for at all residences, that means both grass cutting and leaf cleanup in the fall.  Snow removal on the driveways and sidewalks of our rental houses are a tenant’s responsibility in accordance with city code.  Snow removal services are provided at apartment buildings.
  • The insurance we carry is for the building structures only, and does not include tenant belongings.  Check to see if your parent’s homeowner’s policy covers your possessions while away at school.  Rental content insurance is relatively inexpensive.  We suggest you explore your options and obtain insurance to cover your belongings.
  • We take pride in maintaining our rental units.  Please don’t hesitate to ask current residents about their experience with regard to our residences.
