Filters Delivered to your door every 3 months to fit your specific furnace

  • Benefit: Niche Realty has teamed up with Second Nature to deliver a new furnace filter every 90 days, which will help you save up to 15% on monthly heating bills. We will have the size of the units and they will come to your doorstep without having to do anything.

Lease Renewal Charge ($150 Value)

  • Benefit: If the landlord is going to renew your lease for the next year, you will receive the lease renewal 60 days before it expires. There is a $150 lease signing fee that is waived if the tenant is currently paying for the Resident Benefits Package.

One Time Waiver of Late Fee ($100 Value)

  • Benefit: Niche Realty Associates will grant a one-time waiver of a late fee if fee is paid within 24 hours of it being posted to your account. This benefit can only be used once every 12 months.

One Time Waiver of Returned Payment Charge (NSF) ($75 value)

  • Benefit: Niche Realty Associates will grant a one-time waiver once per year up to $75 on a fee that you have been charged for insufficient funds.

Free Credit Reporting for All Rental Payments made during this Lease to RentBureau

  • Benefit: Tenants receive the benefit of positive credit reporting for all on-time rental payments to RentBureau. Experian RentBureau collects rent payment data from us. RentBureau creates incentives for on-time payments by helping you build positive credit. Rent Bureau will show late payments but will only help your actual credit score. If you are late on a payment, then it can take away the positive score it gave your on-time payments.

Continued use of the Secure Tenant Portal

  • Benefit: Your password-protected portal allows you to view payment history, print rent receipts, make repair requests, update information anytime and pay rent via auto-ACH. You simply pay your rent plus $18.00 per month for an all-inclusive payment.

Continued Use of Online Rent Payments

  • Benefits: Save money on postage and never worry about lost mail. Our system enables you to pay via auto-ACH bank transfers with NO convenience fee.

Continued Use of Online Maintenance Requests

  • Benefit: Easily submit a repair request through your secure Tenant Portal 24/7. Our maintenance team will respond quickly and take action to match the repair with the right qualified vendor. Niche Realty Associates only works with licensed and bonded contractors when servicing each property. We take pride in working with the best vendors in the industry on your behalf.

Annual Preventative Maintenance Walk Through

  • Benefit: We coordinate an annual preventative maintenance walk through. This helps keep the home in tip-top condition and informs us of any necessary repairs the home may need.

Longer Office Hours – we are open with live support 7 days a week from 9-5pm

  • Benefit: Tenants can reach a live person easier and we pride ourselves on returning calls the same day.

Home Buying Assistance

  • Benefit: When the time is right, the real estate team at Niche Realty Associates is here to help you purchase your forever home. We will credit back 1% (based on a 3% sales commission) of our commission to you at closing to help cover your costs.

Free Notary service

  • Benefit: Tenant can utilize Niche Realty Associates’ notary services without charge.
