Rent a house from FS Houses – How To

Looking to rent a home? Need a place to live in Indianapolis? You have come to the right place. Below are step by step instructions on how to rent through FS Houses. If at any point you have additional questions do not hesitate to call our office at 317-492-9025.

1. The first thing to do is check out our requirements for getting approved for our properties. The requirements are enforced strictly so be sure to look over them carefully. If you are still unsure if you will qualify or not the best thing to do is fill out the rental application.

2. Check out our list of available properties here. This list is always 100% up to date. As soon as an approved applicant places a deposit down on a property that property is removed from the list. Our properties move fast and they are all on a first come first serve basis. They are considered rented ONLY when a deposit has been placed by and APPROVED applicant.  We do not hold properties for people that have simply made an appointment or filled out the application.

3. Once you have a property in mind that you would like to check out be sure to contact us here, and let us know that you are wanting to take a look at a property (or a few properties). Filling out the contact us form ensures that you are in our system and that a leasing agent will call you back ASAP (typically with in 24 business hours).

4. If you like a property and want to move forward the next step is to fill out the rental application here. After you fill it out it will prompt you to pay the $35 app fee. Once your app fee is in and we have received the rental application we start to process all of your information during our normal business hours (10am – 5pm Mon – Fri).
It generally takes us about 48 business hours to give a approval or a denial, but the time will vary depending on how long it takes to get a hold of your previous landlord, proof of income, etc.

Pets:  FS Houses allows a maximum of 2 pets.  There is a $250 fee for each pet.

5. Once you have been approved for a property and you would like to commit to the property, hold the property, and take it off the market, and move in within 30 days…   Now its time to put down your deposit.  To pay the deposit, please call 317-492-9025 or stop in our office at 870 Virginia Ave. Indianapolis, IN 46203.  Once the deposit has been paid our property manager will reach out to you about move in details and signing a lease!

Thanks! and happy house hunting 🙂
