How To Rent

How to Arrive at “Hello, New Home.”

With so many possible places to live, it can be tough to find the right one for you—unless you’re using Silvernest that is.

Here’s how it works:

1) Search Listings for FREE

Make the most of your nest hunt with our helpful filters that conveniently let you search by location, price and more.

2) Apply In a Snap

Submit your application with your one-time payment of $29.99 (this includes a basic background check to pre-approve you as a prospective housemate). Then complete your profile so we know exactly what you’re looking for in your new home.

4) Hone In On Homes

See a listing you like? Submit an inquiry. If it’s a qualified match, we’ll let both you and the homeowner know. If it’s not, we’ll serve up some other options that may be a better fit based on your preferences.

5) Meet and Greet

Once a qualified match is made, it's interview time. Your homeowner may request a video call and/or an in-person meeting to get to know you. Hint: be honest about what you want from your living situation. This is just as much about your comfort as it is about theirs.

6) Look Over Your Lease

Victory! You both like each other. That means it’s lease time. Once we get final approval from your homeowner and they have everything they need (they may request references, just FYI), you’ll receive your lease to review and sign.

7) Make Your Move

Here’s the fun part: pack up and move into your new place!

8) Pay to Stay the Easy Way

Your homeowner may choose to automate rent payments through Silvernest's online rent management service. This secure process ensures that the correct amount will be automatically deducted from your account and paid directly to your homeowner as scheduled. Talk about easy, breezy living.
