What do Austin apartment locators do?
We are licensed real estate agents who specialize in leasing apartments. We're paid by the properties and our services are 100% free to you. Austin apartment locators know where the deals are, who works with what issues and which Austin apartments will have the best specials running on the day you want to look. If you are from out of town, we know all areas of Austin and can tell you the best places to live around Austin and back it up with facts.

Why should I use an Austin apartment locator?
I remember back in the 80's, I would call, what I thought was an apartment, only to have this real estate guy answer the phone and start telling me about all these great deals he knew about. I think I hung up!
At the time, I didn't know what a truly wonderful service apartment locating is. Pick an area of town and your Austin apartment locator will find you the best deal, the best price, the best special, the best floorplans,the best view. Do you need the first floor ...no problem, have credit issues, ask your locator, he/she knows what properties will work with you. Don't know where you want to live,your locator knows Austin like the back of his hand. (see map) Austin apartments are constantly emailing and faxing us their hot specials. We are constantly talking shop amongst ourselves and along with our databases of properties, using our services is a win/win situation for everybody. All this and it's totally free to you.
How do I work with an Austin apartment locator?
The first thing to do is either call me or submit an online form. Obviously I'm a big fan of the Internet, but full service is still the easiest and smartest way to find the best housing. With my knowledge of the properties and your desire to find the nicest place and get the best deal we make a good team. First I'll need to know your price range and whether you prefer north or south. (see map) with that information, along with suggestions, I usually make we come up with a geographic area for me to search. I often ask a few simple qualifying questions just to be sure we don't run into a problem (take the test) . I will also ask about floor preference, furniture, pets, etc.The I go to my databases, start calling the properties, ask other Austin apartment locators, check apartment faxes, until I have a list of suitable properties. I report back to you and we narrow it down to three to five properties. My inside knowledge of these properties is a huge benefit to you. Then you can come to the office or I'll meet you at the property and off we go. I do the introductions, ask all the right questions you may not know to ask, and in general make sure what you want and what the leasing agent is discussing are the same thing. In two or three hours and usually less... were done. Simple,simple simple and win/win. Unless you know exactly where you want to live, working without an austin apartment finder is like stepping up to the plate without a bat.
What apartment locators in Austin Texas can not do?
Austin apartment finders can only work with the information you give them. They are not judgmental, so it is very important for you to shoot straight. We simply need to know the particular facts of your situation so we can take you to the best places and get you the best Austin apartment deals. It is not our job to sell you... but to give you options. So...its very important for us to know what kind of problems, if any, we need to deal with. ALWAYS BE UPFRONT WITH YOUR LOCATOR.
Can locators help everybody?
No...we can help most people. Some folks just have to many issues to get into an apartment. Two broken leases, bad credit, a felony, a part time job with a temp agency and a rabid Pit Bull are more than most of us care to take on. (see All about individual owners)
How do Austin apartment finders make their money?
By escorting and sometimes sending you to the property and giving the leasing agent a guest card with your pertinent information on it. When you fill out the application there will be a line that says "How did you find us" put in my name along with the company I work for "Homeplace Apartment Search" I'll send them a bill and that's all there is to it. I prefer to escort people but sometimes I will send you to the property depending on my schedule that day.
Why do you ask me all these personal questions?
I feel your pain here!...Don't take it personal though. The property will run a thorough check on you for credit, income, rental history, and a
background check. We do you a disservice when we take you places you won't qualify for. We hate to see people lose their rental application fees.
How else can you help me?
We keep up on current prices, specials, availabilits, pet policies, policy changes and qualifying criteria.This way you can benefit from our expertise and the data in our data base, get the "big picture" of the market, and feel comfortable you are not missing anything.
How much time can you save me?
Statistics show we save customers an average of 16-18 hrs of searching (like 2 or 3 weekends). First, we research to find the best communities for you to view so we feel sure you will be comfortable that you have been well educated to the market and confident that one of the complexes you view will be the ideal one.
Apartment searching can be time consuming and very frustrating. With hundreds or thousands of choices, it can be mind boggling.
We suggest you pick one local licensed locator you feel comfortable with (hopefully us) and discuss your wants and needs to help pinpoint the ideal home for you. All locators work with the same apts, so there is no need to contact several assuming we have different databases we work with.
How do you differ from other online sites I see?
We ARE a full service real estate firm with a full database, experienced, Texas Real Estate Commission licensed, thoughtful Austin apartment locators ready to truly save you time and money in your search.
We ARE NOT just another automated site on the Internet, a "searchable" database that gives you a few random options with no current prices or availability info with no personalized service. You might as well use the Yellow Pages and waste hours and days trying to do it yourself
