Always negotiable but typical purchase is 3% but can scale down for big boy deals. On a lease to a credit tenant you're looking at first month rent + 3% total rent in initial term. A broker may choose to take his/her commission as roll up equity if the LL chooses, in which case the broker would share in the ability of the tenant to fulfill its obligations. Otherwise, on a straight cash commission deal, the broker either gets paid at close or at lease commencement. The brokers services are rendered by handling calls, marketing the property, and securing an end user for a parcel. The LL is responsible for due diligence and ultimately the performance of the property, not the broker. ... more

Every landlord will have a different requirement so it's hard to set everything in stone Typically you'd want to have your current driver license, remember your SS#, your employer contact, past few months paystub, job offer letter if you've just been accepted for a new job, and bank statement especially if you are currently not employed. Remember, the landlord may ask for additional documents not noted here.

Good luck and welcome to Texas!

Vanessa,

Here in the Fort Worth area the market is very, very hot. Two months is probably a little early. You may find a someone that will hold a property for that long. but it is unlikely. Even thirty days out, you will need to pay your deposit up front for them to hold it.

Good Luck,

Bp56691,

What is your real estate career. Starting out as an investor or becoming a licensed Realtor? First, the pet deposit should be negotiated at the time of signing the lease. It can be whatever you determine it to be after taking into consideration all of the potential problems and damage that could occur. Pet deposits are common in landlord-tenant agreements. Second, thiis is not a rental where you are an absentee landlord. You will be living with this huge pet on a day to day basis. Getting extra income is one thing, but your personal comfort should be the first priority. From the tone of your question, I don't think this is a good fit for you. One of the first things to learn as a landlord is not to just accept the first potential tenant that walks up with cash in hand. Take the time to think through all of the issues before accepting and signing on the dotted line.
