Irving TX Free Apartment Locator
 

How much does our service cost?

Our service is 100% free to you!

How do we get paid?

The apartments pay us a referral fee out of their advertising budget.  Our agents are on commission so it is important that you let the property know we referred you.  Using a locator will not affect your rent specials or rent amount in any way. In fact, sometimes
we can get you a better deal.

I’m relocating from another city/state, and am unfamiliar
with the DFW area. Do you have any relocation information I can check
out?

Yes. Our Residential Real Estate company has a comprehensive relocation guide – CLICK HERE to read more

Can you help me find a rental house instead of an apartment?

It depends on your budget and desired location. Most rent homes start around $1300 a month and go up from there and will require a full months deposit. Contact us if you would like us to check rental homes.

Am I required to schedule an appointment with you to visit properties?

No. You are free to visit properties at your convenience. Because these are apartment communities, leasing agents at the properties will take you on your tours. If you need assistance, contact us to discuss having one of our agents escort you to the properties.

I have a broken lease/eviction/apartment debt. Can you still help me find a place?

Yes, but your choices of places that will work with you will be limited depending on the issues you have. There are ‘Second Chance’ communities throughout the Metroplex, however, each property will have its own set of requirements when reviewing this particular credit issue. Contact us to review your needs.

Why do I need to list my agent as the referral source on my guest card & application?

Most properties in the DFW area pay licensed agents a referral fee out of their advertising budget when we bring them a client.  In order for them to pay a commission to your agent, they require you to list us (1 Source Apartments and the agent name) as your referral source on both the guest card and the application. Without your referral, we are not paid for the work that we do for you.

What are the lease incentives?

We have different lease incentives available. You can choose from different options – A Kindle Fire Tablet, cash rebates, credit towards  your move or $50-$150 in restaurant.com gift certificates. Rebates are dependant on your rent amount and the fee being paid by the property. Some properties pay a small flat fee and will not qualify for a lease incentive.

Does your company offer a free move?

The so called free moves that some companies offer are almost never free and have way too many strings attached.  They have a minimum rental rate and charge extra fees for a lot of the items that need to be moved. They also do not offer the level of service we can provide.  We do have free move options, but your rent amount must be at leat $900 and it must be at a qualifying property. Please contact your agent to discuss your options.

Do you offer any other incentives?

We run different promotions. Check with your agent to see if there are any current promotions that might fit your needs.

How do I get the lease incentive?
In order to qualify for the lease incentive you must do the following:.

  • You must put Your Agent @1 Source Apartments on the guest card and rental application.
  • *Sign a 6 month or longer lease, with a participating property. This is a property that works with 1 Source Apartments.
  • *Rent amount must be at least $700
  • *Notify us once your rental application has been approved.

1 Source Apartments reserves the right to disqualify the incentive for the following reasons:

  • *The apartment refuses to pay 1 Source Apartments our referral fee.
  • *Failure to follow the requirements to qualify for a rebate.
  • *Rent Amount is less than $600.

*1 Source Apartments will pay one lease incentive when allowed by law. Incentive is paid once property sends us our referral fee. It typically takes between 8-12 weeks for us to receive payment, but can take longer. If you have any questions please call your agent.
