How do I use the Request to Apply feature?
There are a number of ways to reach out to a rental listed on Apartments.com, and now with the Request to Apply feature, you have another means of getting in touch with a property manager.
The Request to Apply feature will allow you to self-report your income and credit score, and it will be present on every user-submitted listing. This information will be sent directly to the property manager, agent or whomever is managing the advertisement, and it will give them a picture of you as a tenant before applying to the location.
If your credit score and income fits their criteria, the property manager will have a chance to email you an invitation to apply to the rental. Please bear in mind that if you're invited, you will have to create an account on Apartments.com and pay the one-time consumer report fee if you have not done so already.
