Leasing For Students

Whether you're looking for a one bedroom apartment on West Campus, a two bedroom flat downtown, or a house for six sorority sisters in Hyde Park, Carvajal Group's comprehensive, advanced search capabilities can help you narrow down a list of leasing properties that meet your needs. (See our Leasing Wish List for Students to start prioritizing your features). If you've already found the place you want to live, let us negotiate for you. If you want to snag the best place to live for the 2010-2011 school year, check out our section dedicated to Pre-Leasing.

Why do you need a real estate agent if you can find a deal on Craigslist or walk into the leasing office of an apartment complex? Because we're on your side every step of the way, and finding your ideal place to live is only step one. Besides, the guy at the leasing office might have HIS best interests in mind, not yours. We make sure you get the best deal, you sign the right paperwork and that you're set up to get that hefty deposit back. Read more about the entire leasing process - from search to contract - in Six Steps to Leasing for Students.

Most of our agents are UT grads, and we have loads of experience with individual apartment complexes and the neighborhoods surrounding the university. Our commitment is to be your advocate through every step of the process. Here are all the things we'll help you with:

  • Determining your key criteria
  • Narrowing down your list of ideal properties
  • Scheduling showings right away - great properties don't last long!
  • Providing our opinions (only when requested, of course) on the advantages and deficiencies of your short-list
  • Completing any necessary offer or application paperwork
  • Negotiating lease terms
  • Reviewing final documentation before signing
  • Completing the necessary walk-through paperwork to get your deposit back when it's time to move out
  • Recommending a mover and any other service provider you need to get you settled into your new place.
