FAQ

I’M MOVING TO CHARLESTON, BUT I’M UNSURE OF WHAT AREA TO LIVE IN. WHERE SHOULD I START MY RENTAL SEARCH?

Our Tenant Agents are knowledgeable of the Charleston rental market, local communities and available properties. Once we understand your preferences (desired amenities, work commute, etc.), we will recommend areas and specific listings that are well-suited for you.


I HAVE CHILDREN, BUT I’M NOT FAMILIAR WITH AREA SCHOOLS. WILL MY TENANT AGENT BE ABLE TO PROVIDE GUIDANCE?

If schools are an important part of your rental decision, we can advise you on the options available and present properties that are zoned appropriately.


HOW CAN I DETERMINE IF A RENTAL IS SAFE?

When evaluating rental safety, most look to the neighborhood. A safe neighborhood is important, and we can help you find one. In addition to the neighborhood, renters should evaluate the safety of the rental itself. Tenant Agents know what to look for and avoid (mold, structural issues, etc). The quality of your rental is a big deal, and we believe clients should Be Happy Renting.


HOW DO I KNOW IF THE RENT ADVERTISED IS A FAIR PRICE? SHOULD I NEGOTIATE THE ASKING PRICE?

We are knowledgeable of the rental market and fair market value. If a property is priced beyond that, we are equipped to negotiate rent on your behalf.


HOW DO I ENSURE THAT MY LEASE TERMS ARE FAIR?

Our Tenant Agents are extremely knowledgeable of lease terms/language. They can review the lease and (if necessary) negotiate changes.


I’VE HEARD THAT THE CHARLESTON RENTAL MARKET IS COMPETITIVE. HOW CAN I MAKE SURE THAT MY PROPERTY OF CHOICE DOESN’T GO TO ANOTHER TENANT?

We recommend that clients get “pre-approved.” We can help with this process. Pre-approval will save time during the application process and can help to secure a listing quickly.


IS THIS A TIME CONSUMING PROCESS?

Tenant Agents cut out a lot of the legwork. We conduct property searches based on your preferences and narrow the options so that you won’t need to waste time looking at properties that aren’t ideal.


I DON’T LIVE IN THE AREA AND DON’T REALLY KNOW MY WAY AROUND. CAN A TENANT AGENT HELP ME GET TO SHOWINGS?

Yes, your Tenant Agent can drive you to showings and work within the time that you have available.


IS RENTING FROM A PROPERTY OWNER DIFFERENT FROM RENTING THROUGH A PROPERTY MANAGEMENT COMPANY?

Yes, and we can advise you regarding the differences. It is important that your future landlord be a capable one.


HOW MUCH DOES THIS SERVICE COST?

$299 for up to 10 hours of service.

"Charleston Home Rentals has been a great company to rent from. Any tenant concerns we have ever had, they have addressed in a very timely manner and in a very professional way. We have re-signed three leases with Matt Manaker and he has made it very worth our while every time to continue to do business with them. CHR is really a great group and we look forward to leasing from them for a while to come."
