Residential Rental Criteria

Dear Applicant. Thank you for choosing to apply to rent a Davis Real Estate, Inc. property! As we provide a high-quality experience to all our residents; we are seeking long term, high quality residents.

Please read the below information and instructions fully.

Do not proceed with completing and submitting an application unless you have read and agree to these instructions.

Scoring Criteria: Applications are processed on a point system and scored based upon factors including, but not limited to: rental history, income, employment, criminal and eviction history, and resident/credit score. If your application does not meet our minimum qualifications, an additional security deposit may be required. Please note you will also be required to complete a profile for acknowledgement of having or not having pets on the property. Please visit to complete the profile that matches your needs.

  1. Your gross income should be at least 2 times the monthly rent. We do combine all adult's income. If the income is less than 2 times, it will result in this application being automatically denied.
  2. At least one person must have a credit score of 550 or above. This score plays into what we will pull which is a Resident Score. Similar to FICO or Vantage, TransUnion's ResidentScore is in a range of 350 to 850. While ResidentScore will not completely align with the more common FICO or Vantage score, there will naturally be some correlation.
  3. If you are a registered sex offender; this is an automatic denial.
  4. Felony convictions may result in the application being denied.
  5. If you have had 2 or more evictions at any point in time; this is an automatic denial.
  6. If you have an open collection from a landlord or property management company, this is an automatic denial.
  7. We do not allow more than 4 unrelated adults in a rental home.
  8. A valid government-issued photo ID is required from all applicants.
  9. If ANY information is found to be false, the application will be automatically denied.
  10. Deposits will vary depending on scoring outcome.

Pet Policy: Please confirm the pet policy for this property. If pets are allowed for this property, please note that we do have breed and age restrictions on dogs that we must follow as a company policy. You can view our company pet policy on our website. All of our properties differ in pet policies regarding what kind of pet, weight, number of pets allowed, and additional pet fees do apply per pet.

Next Steps:

Each occupant, age 18 and above, must complete an individual application and pay a NONREFUNDABLE application fee of $45 per adult. Application fees must be received BEFORE the application can be processed. **The cost of the application fee is based on average expenses of what Davis Real Estate, Inc. incurs.

  1. An incomplete application will delay the process and may result in another applicant being approved while we wait for your information.
  2. Once we receive your completed application, we will have it fully processed and notify you of the results within 48 business hours of receipt.
  3. If approved, you will have until 9:30 a.m. the following business day to sign the lease AND pay the security deposit online. We will place the property on a temporary hold until that designated time, however, until we receive the signed lease AND the security deposit, we will not take the property off the market.
  4. In the case where we receive more than one application on a property, we will process ALL applications and approve the highest scored applicant. If your application is approved with less points, we do hold applications open for 60 days. You may apply your pre-approved application towards any of our other properties within those 60 days WITHOUT having to pay an application fee again.
  5. Please note you’ll also be required to complete a profile for acknowledgement of not having or having pets on the property. Please visit to complete the profile that matches your needs.
