Looking for a Rental to accommodate your Quality of Life and Flexibility?
We help ambitious professionals find their dream houses, apartments, and condos—without a huge mortgage to tie them down.
Are you tired of looking at rundown rentals that look they’ve been hosting college parties for the last 30 years?
Do you want to love where you live—without having to spend hours a week on lawn care?
If you answered “yes” to any of those questions, we can help. Ray Gernhart and Associates has a deep understanding of the local rental market. Our high-quality rentals are places you can actually call home.
You’re not in college anymore. You have a professional career and want a home that reflects your lifestyle. But when you look at the mortgages your friends are taking on—saddling them with huge debt for decades—you’re just not comfortable with that idea.
So you’re looking at rentals. Terrific! We have a huge selection of carefully curated rental properties. Sure, you could search online. But that usually means sinking time into sifting through spam listings, weeding out scams, and vetting landlords—and that’s before you even start visiting places.
We rigorously pre-qualify all of our listings and landlords, so you don’t have to waste any time. And that comes at no extra cost to you. (In fact, landlords pay us to list their rentals, because they want high-quality tenants.)
We’d be remiss, though, if we didn’t mention a couple things.
A LOT of people come to us looking for rentals, saying things like:
- “You know, I’m just not ready for a house.”
- “I’m not sure how long I’ll be here—it might only be a couple years.”
- “I really just want a low-maintenance apartment in an area where I can walk to public transportation and coffee shops.”
- “I don’t have 20% for a down payment.”
They’re often surprised to learn that:
- If you plan to stay in a home for more than a year, you’re probably better off buying. Otherwise, you’re losing the opportunity to build equity.
- With creative financing, you can buy a house with less than 10% and sometimes even 0% down.
And if you think about it, how much more work is a condo than an apartment? The main difference is that with one, you’re building equity, and with the other, your money’s just gone.
We’ve helped thousands of renters buy their own homes with financing that works for them. We help buyers look at their financing options from a holistic standpoint—ensuring they get the best home for their situation. And since we’ve been doing this for 30 years, we have an extensive network of financing partners to work with.
At every step of the way, we’re available to answer questions and to help you through the process—a 180° difference from working with a bank.
