Frequently Asked Questions
WHAT ARE YOU LOOKING FOR IN AN APPLICANT?
We are looking for applicants interested in becoming a part of a friendly, respectful and welcoming home. If you are interested in being a part of an inclusive environment, forming new friendships, and making the most of your time in San Francisco, consider applying with Vybe Living now.
HOW DOES THE PROCESS WORK?
Our team of San Francisco experts will listen to your needs and housing priorities and work to find a room that best fits your needs. Depending on availability, as well as health and safety requirements, you will be able to participate in a virtual or in-person tour of the property. From there, the team will work with you one-on-one guiding you through the application, as well as the lease signing process.
WHAT DOES THE APPLICATION PROCESS CONSIST OF?
All applicants are required to provide background check documents and proof of sufficient funds to pay for rent. Once we recieve these documents and your application approved, our team will start the leasing process. Our team will provide an optional housemate introduction prior to the leasing process as well.
WHAT DOES THE BACKGROUND CHECK EXAMINE?
Domestic applicants will be able to complete an online background check. Currently, the check is performed by a third party company and costs $30. The document will review your credit, criminal and eviction history.
ARE THERE ANY SPECIFIC INCOME OR CREDIT REQUIREMENTS?
We work with each applicant to understand their individual financial and credit picture prior to making a decision regarding their application. We may ask for supporting documentation after the background check has been processed to assure the candidates are qualified to each home’s standards.
DO YOU ACCEPT COSIGNERS ON THE LEASE?
Yes, co-signers are accepted.
I’M NOT LOCATED IN SAN FRANCISCO. CAN THE LEASING PROCESS BE DONE VIRTUALLY?
Yes! The entire process from beginning to end can be done from the comfort of your couch. We use high quality photos and 360 degree video tours to help you get to know the apartment without leaving your home. The background check, lease signing process and payment can all be completed virtually as well.
CAN I SEE THE HOUSE IN-PERSON?
Like many operations, our process went 100% virtual in February of 2020 in order to safeguard interested applicants, current tenants and our staff from the Covid-19 pandemic health crisis. Currently, we are studying possible options to re-incorporate in-person tours at our homes in a safe way. More details to come!
