Generally we require first month, last month, and security deposit prior to move-in.  The security deposit is typically one month’s rent with the possibility of increased security and/or fees if you have pets.  We generally accept personal checks,  money orders and bank checks. It’s important to remember that each rental situation is unique and different landlords have different requirements.

Sometimes looking in advance will not be as beneficial as you think it may be. For units that are currently occupied, we won’t know if they will be available until the tenants give notice they won’t be renewing. This can vary from 1 to 3 months.

You can call 215-467-4100 during normal business hours or e-mail info@jg-realestate.com to set up a showing. For easier scheduling, make sure you have the address in hand and let us know what your anticipated move-in date is. The earlier you reach out to us, the higher chances you have of renting out the unit, as appointments are made on a first come first served basis.

The application costs $45 for each individual that will be staying in the unit plus any co-signers. This is a basic screening process that checks your credit score and history, rental history, employment, and general information that would qualify you as a great tenant! As far as credit/income requirements, unless specifically stated in the advertisement, there is no specific credit score or income minimum. Applications are reviewed as a whole.

Pets are conditional upon the owner’s approval. Most of our properties allow pets with an additional deposit or fee. The amount of deposit depends  on variables such as size, breed, age, and prior landlord references.  In many cases the required deposit will be $500 per dog and $250 per cat.

Please note that JG Real Estate complies with Fair Housing and American’s with disabilities acts. A service animal with appropriate documentaton is not considered a pet and will be evaluated appropriately.

Utility prices vary depending on multiple factors, so there is no estimate we are able to give you.  However, you can call  PECO and PGW, give them the address of the unit and they usually will be able to provide you with a historical average of the unit’s usage and bills.

Prices are varied depending on location and amenities. Some of our properties located in prime areas will generally cost more than other locations even if they are smaller in size.

A person’s comfort level is really subjective, we can’t make that call for you – no one will be able to say for sure that any area in the city is “safer” than others. We recommend that you do some research about the area and drive through the neighborhood  before scheduling an appointment. A valuable site to look up crime statistics in various neighborhoods is www.spotcrime.com.

If none of our properties fit your mold, we may be able to set you up with an agent at no cost to you. If we have an agent available we’ll ask for some basic information concerning what you are looking for. The agent will then set up a personalized search of listings outside of our own.
