All leases are for one year and require a deposit equal to one month’s rent unless otherwise specified in writing by ManCo Real Estate.

A deposit is not required to apply, but deposits are encouraged to be paid with the application fee to hold the property for up to 2 weeks. A deposit does not guarantee an application will be approved.

If an application is denied, the deposit will be returned to the applicant.

We will consider applications with a full deposit first, before any applications without a deposit, regardless of which application was received first.

If an application is canceled after a date is set for the lease signing, the deposit will not be returned.

If you do not meet the qualifications or have any questions or concerns please contact ManCo Property Services before you schedule an appointment or apply for a property.

As someone who was recently living in what was effectively a halfway house, I am thankful that ManCo Property Services was willing to work with my MHP, Eastway, in order to procure an affordable apartment for me to secure my own independence. The apartment itself has been great so far, and most of the issues, have been handled professionally by the office and maintenance staff.

We are out of state investors and we just moved a few multifamily buildings over to ManCo for them to manage a week ago. Susie and her staff have done a terrific job informing the tenants of the change and doing a walk-through of each apartment. We have been receiving great information and communication from the staff at ManCo!

Today, I had a wonderful experience with Maintenance Tech Darrell Balsamo who came to do an annual AC inspection. He called ahead of time and left a very professional and pleasant voicemail and when I returned the call he managed my expectations of when he would arrive. Upon arrival, he was cheerful and kept me informed along the way of what he was doing, and at the end did a recap. All in all, a great experience!
