Hello! And thanks for considering Buckeye Real Estate for your housing needs in the 2019-2020 lease term. 2019-2020 rents are usually set and updated on our website by September. Our current residents lease agreements are just starting and they will be given a renewal period before we begin renting. We are able to begin showing our units on Monday, November 12th. We will not schedule showings for that day as we will be taking all walk in showings for the first day of rental season. We are able to begin scheduling showings for Tuesday, November 13th on Friday, November 9th. This letter is designed to answer the most commonly asked questions that we hear before rental season begins…
How can I sign a lease without waiting until November 12th?
Our office offers an alternative to waiting until rental season; and that is the Renewal Waiver Form. Basically, if you view a Buckeye Real Estate home on your own with the current residents, and they don’t plan to renew, they are able to ‘waive’ their renewal rights and allow you to sign a lease earlier than November 12th. Renewal Waiver Forms will be available in our office (and on our website) on October 8th and explain further how the rental would work. This is a NEW lease that you would sign, the form simply tells us that the current residents don’t wish to renew and it’s okay with them if we sign their unit to someone else. You should be prepared to pay the deposit and sign a lease with any of your fall roommates when you bring the completed form back to our office.

What is the first day of rental season like at Buckeye Real Estate?
Our FIRST OFFICIAL DAY of rental season begins Monday, November 12th. Many prospective residents have started looking for apartment-homes by now and are shopping on our website to narrow down their housing options and/or walking around the campus area checking out places on their own. The first day of rental season is always busy! There are prospective residents who opt not to use a Renewal Waiver Form and instead choose to wait in line on the first day of rental season in order to rent their desired apartment. While it’s true that we begin showing on Monday, November 12th, keep in mind that there are only so many showings we are able to take and our showings have a tendency to book up early. So, many residents will view a unit on their own in order to rent it the first week of rental season, rather than waiting for an appointment to show. Keep in mind that all units are rented on a first come, first serve basis. It is not necessary to make an appointment to rent the unit, you can rent any unit that you have viewed, whether through us or on your own.
At this time, the easiest thing to do would be to search online to narrow down properties that might interest you. Keep in mind that our website is updated every day. So if a unit renews, or rents with a Renewal Waiver Form, it will be removed from our Available Rentals page. Feel free to stop by our office with your list of properties during normal business hours. That way, a leasing staff member can discuss your housing options in person and explain the rental procedure to you
No waiting on our BRAND NEW properties for Fall 2019!! We are sure to have units that are under construction and therefore don’t have a renewal period! We can’t show them, because they don’t yet exist, however, we will have drawings/floor plans that can be sent via email!
Email the leasing office at firstname.lastname@example.org to get more information about our units! We should have information on them this September!
We will give you fair warning that any properties located between 11th and Lane and between High and Summit are very popular based on their price and location, and, therefore, very competitive. You might want to look into the Renewal Waiver Form option on those!
Again, thanks for writing!
