Applying for an Austin Rental Property: The ALPS Process

Finding a new rental home doesn’t have to be a challenging and stressful experience. At Austin Landmark Property Services, we understand that the rental market is complex, especially if you’re a tenant trying to balance your income and expenses while choosing a comfortable, safe, and pleasant place to live.

We want to help. If you know what your budget is and you have an idea about your desired neighborhood, we have an excellent starting point.

We’ve rented homes. We manage homes. We understand that the application process can be confusing and time-consuming, and we’ve done everything we can to streamline what’s required of you so we can move on and help you settle into your new place.

If you’re a prospective tenant looking for a rental home, we have some information you might find helpful. And when you’re ready to view our rental properties, check out our listings. We’ll help you schedule a showing and walk you through the process.

Our website is the best place to find our available listings. You’ll be able to browse photos, read descriptions, and think about whether the move-in date works for your timing. You will find out if pets are allowed and where each home is located.

It’s also easy to find our available rental property listings with the Austin Board of Realtors multiple listing service (MLS) system.

We don’t think you should rent a property without seeing it. Schedule a showing with the assistance of the Austin Landmark Property Services REALTOR Team. If you’re already working with an agent to find your next rental home, any REALTOR that’s a member of the Austin Board of Realtors can show you the property.

Austin Landmark’s Application Requirements

Our resident application criteria will be provided to every potential applicant. It’s online and easy to access. We recommend you read it thoroughly so you can determine whether or not you have a good chance of being approved for the home.

Applications are processed on a first come first served basis. This reflects our commitment to fairness and consistency. We approve the first qualified applicant. Backup applications may be submitted and held in place, at no cost to the applicant. Any fees submitted for backup applications will be refunded unless the applications are processed as a primary application.

Prospective tenants can apply online using the application link on the listing page on our website, or on the public MLS listing online application link.

To apply, you’ll need to:

  • Complete the online application

  • Upload supporting documents that verify income and other information

  • Pay the application fees

If more than one adult will be living at the home, applicants must indicate this on their application. A link will be generated to share with co-applicants by email or text. All adult applicants can use the shared link to apply as a group.

Sometimes, a co-signer is necessary and in that case, your co-signer may complete the co-signer application online using the same method through our website or MLS listing link. Co-signer applicants don’t have to provide as much information as the applicants who will be living in the home.

Any incomplete or missing information can cause delays in the approval process or cause an incomplete application to be passed over for a complete application. Please make sure to read all instructions carefully and provide all needed documents and information during the application process.

Preparing to Sign Your Austin Lease Agreement

If your application is approved – congratulations! You’ll be notified by a property manager.

At this point, we’ll prepare your lease agreement. Please review it carefully before you sign it, and prepare a list of questions or clarifications that you need from us. We’re going to ask for your move-in date and expect to collect all move-in funds, including the security deposit, which is required as soon as you’re approved.

Before you move in, you’ll have to pay any remaining deposits, and one full month of rent. Any prorated rent will be due on the second month of the lease.

When you’re ready to move in, you can meet your property manager at the ALPS office to obtain keys and any access devices.

The hard part is over. Now, you can turn your house into a home. We are here to help you enjoy your stay.

Pam and Marc were fantastic! I was needing a house quickly and had to put my faith in this company to get me into a good house for my dog and me. I moved down from Minnesota to Leander Texas. I did all the applications online and was able to sign and pay online as well.

We have 3 properties being managed by Marc Witmer with ALPS. During the freezing last month in Texas one of our properties had significant damage. Marc checked the properties and reported his findings to me promptly. He then proceeded to get the issues addressed, notified the right people, dealt with the insurance and kept me completely informed. I couldn’t have asked for better representation. Thank you, Marc

I've used ALPS for many years and they've always been responsive. They helped address some nasty weather-related issues recently quickly and in a professional manner.

Super easy to work with! I didn’t stay at the property long (for other reasons) but I would welcome the opportunity to work with this management company any time in the future!

In preparation for closing on my first Central TX investment property, I evaluated several NARPM-certified property management firms. There are many. ALPS, though, has the highest designation available from NARPM (CRMC), and the principal at the firm, Mike E., struck me as both very professional and down-to-earth. He said that if I selected ALPS, I would not be disappointed. He was right. I closed on the home right before Thanksgiving, and he and his team had the property rented in less than 3 weeks (i.e. before Christmas)! Not easy to do in the off season. So far, everything is going smoothly with the new tenants. Fellow owners, i recommend you give ALPS a try, especially if you don't know where to turn or have had enough of poor management experiences elsewhere. Thank you, ALPS, for all you have done thus far, and I look forward to furthering the relationship with another investment property, the Lord willing, in the future!

We had a great move-in experience. This property management company helped us with the utilities transfer and when we needed repairs done were very responsive. We have been very pleased with the new house and with the professional and helpful property management.

When we saw this house we knew we had to rent it! We were in a situation that required us to move quickly. ALP understood and jumped in to help get the paperwork initiated and all the house details taken care of. Even when we discovered that the City had disconnected the gas meter and ALP had to go through the process of getting a new permit, we were still able to move in on time. Marc was very professional and he responded to my calls and texts almost instantly. I would recommend them as property managers for busy people.

Whenever we've had a problem (no ac in August, leaky fridge, noisy ceiling fan) they've been very responsive. Their subcontractors, G&S Services and Manning Enterprises LLC have provided exceptional customer service.
