A showing cannot be set until photo identification has been submitted and approved by Rainey staff during normal business hours. Once this process is complete you can see any property that is available to be shown.
Most of our properties are shown by using a lockbox to enter the property. You can schedule the property to be shown and you will receive the code to access the lockbox at the time of your showing by email.
Spin the dials on the lockbox until it shows the code for that property. Once the code is displayed, there is a small door on the right side of the device that slides upwards. It looks like a battery compartment. The key is inside the lockbox behind that small door. The lockbox does not come off the door. The code must still be displayed to secure the keys in the lockbox after use.
Some of our properties are occupied, or per homeowner request, require a staff member to be present for showings. These properties are shown by appointment only by Rainey staff. Most do require at least 24-48 hour advance notice. Once we receive your request for an appointment, we will let you know the availability.

Our general guidelines allow two persons per bedroom plus one additional person per unit. This is to prevent overcrowding and are in keeping with the limitations of the rental unit and its building systems. If the applicant wishes to exceed our general occupancy guideline then we will review using the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development's guidance. The Keating Memo from HUD explains the two bedroom rule. If you want to vary from our general rule then make note on your application so we can see if a variance is warranted.
If a property does accept pets, Rainey general policy requires a non-refundable pet fee of $250 per pet, OR an increase in rent of $25 per pet, per month. Some properties do have specific amounts listed, or can require both; anything specifically listed will supersede the general policy. Requests for a pet can be submitted using the Maintenance Request form on our website.
All leases are for 12 months. Many owners are willing to accept longer leases. When wanting a longer lease, indicate the length on your application.
