Aamerican Rental FAQ'S

Real Estate Broker/Owner with Aamerican Property Management and Sales
In addition to the normal tenant/prospect requirements, we use two support guarantee mechanisms that allow us to set-up a secure tenant/landlord relationship when there are mitigating circumstances and a prospect does not meet our typical profile and we still want to rent to them.
I will be pleased to discuss our system add-ons, so-to-speak. They are standard and offered to all.
Why should I rent from your company?
    • How do I apply to rent?
    • Will I sign a lease?
    • Why should I rent from your company?
We are a professional, knowledgeable, and courteous property management company. We work very hard to provide the highest quality resident services you'll ever experience.
We use professional vendors (painters, handymen, plumbers, carpet cleaners, etc) to ensure that your unit is in good condition. We inspect the work performed to ensure that everything is ready before you move in.
We are available 24 hours a day to handle emergency maintenance repairs.
We provide detailed Move-in and Move-out Inventory forms for proper documentation of the condition of your rental.
All deposits that are retained by us are kept in a FDIC insured bank.
When you sign your lease, you have a meeting with your property manager to go over all parts of the lease to help ensure that everyone is aware of their responsibilities under the lease.
All our property managers are licensed real estate professionals according to state requirements.
How do I apply to rent?
Check out our application guidelines to be sure you qualify, then complete our application form and submit it to us along with the application fee for the home you want. We'll process it and let you know the results.
Will I sign a lease?
Yes, for most of our properties you will sign a 12 month lease that covers our responsibilities to each other throughout our tenancy. We will go over each part of the lease to ensure you understand it. After your application is accepted, your deposit is received, and your lease is signed, we'll hand you the keys to your home! .
