Tenant Services

Summary of Our Professional Tenant Services in the Boise Area

  • Receive First Rate Services

    You're the one paying the rent, so you deserve the first rate treatment. Sure, our rents are very reasonable, but we don't stop there. We also offer multiple discounts and incentives. Below you will read about the many services, discounts, and incentives that are unmatched by any of our competitors.
  • Don't Throw Your Rent Money out the Window

    First Rate Property Management is the only company in Boise, Idaho who cares about our tenants so much that we give them part of their rent back as a credit to purchase a home. Tenants can earn as much as $500 the very day they sign their lease. Additionally you can earn up to 5% of your monthly rent as additional credit towards the purchase of any active home on the Multiple Listing Service within select areas. So if you rent a home that rents for $1,000 per month for two years, you accumulated credit would be $2,000. That's free money! Read more about First Rate Property Management's Home Ownership Program. If you prefer to lease to own, or have an option to buy, or sign a lease/purchase, just let your First Rate Property Management Leasing Agent know, and we'll contact the owner so that the two of you or your real-estate agents can make the deal.
  • Lease Discounts

    We know that it costs money to move. That is why our properties offer a low deposit and a move-in incentive for a long-term lease for many of our properties. Additionally, we want to reward our good tenants by offering a renewal incentive upon your lease termination. If you find a comparable property for less, call us and we'll go to bat for you and do everything we can to match or beat that rent. The average cost to move is over $1,000. You have packing materials, moving truck, utility disconnect fees, application fees, another deposit, and first month's rent. So save yourself the money and just contact us to see if anything can be done to save you money.

  • Thorough Move-In and Move-Out Inspection

    First Rate Property Management wants each of our tenants to get a full security and cleaning deposit refund, so we help you. We perform a very detailed interior inspection with you prior to moving in. We'll annotate any damages or cleaning issues, as well as document them with photos and/or video. We also show you how to work your appliances, change your furnace filters and anything else you wish additional instructions on.

    When you move out, we'll send you a "help list" to assist you in your cleaning efforts and schedule a move-out inspection and compare it to your move-in inspection to ensure that you are not charged for damages or cleaning issues that were pre-existing.
