Free moves are arranged around your specified move date. To be eligible for either a cash rebate or free move, please review our rebate details online.
Should you find a competitor offering a higher cash rebate for the same community FindMeAPad.com will match that offer plus an additional $25. The competitors offer must be for the same community, the same lease length, and the same unit (size/bedrooms). Competitors offer must be currently documented and verifiable and from a legitimate, licensed apartment locator. To be eligible for the offer match and additional $25 you must meet the regular eligibility requirements.You must also notify FindMeAPad.com within 15 days after signing and reporting your lease that you found a higher rebate.
Look to the community ad to see current rebate details. Not all communities are available for a free move offer due to location and or minimum locator commissions for that community making it financially impossible.
Apartment communities pay us a locator commission, provided you list Findmeapad.com as the sole referral agent on the guest card and leasing paperwork. We take a portion of that commission and offer it back to you in the form of a rebate or free move as a way of saying thanks for using our service. The cash rebate or free move does not impact your monthly rent or other incentives from the apartment community in no way.
Simply navigate to our sign-up page, fill out the form, and click submit. It is 100% free to use.
Simply navigate to the login page and click on "Forgot Username or Password".
Communities change their locator commission rates all the time and thus our incentives change along with them. Sometime they are higher and sometime they are lower. We cannot guarantee cash rebates will remain the same as it is purely a byproduct of the current locator commission being provided by the community. You can however protect yourself by registering with the property you are interested in online. By doing so, you will secure our advertised rebate for up to 30 days.
If you are unable to find a specific apartment community or know of a new development simply send us an email using our contact us page and we will assist. If the community currently does not work with locators then we will not be able to offer any sort of incentive, however if they do work with locators, we will help bridge any gaps of understanding to expidate the process. If you found the apartment community without using our services, unfortunatly we will be unable to offer a Cash Rebate or FREE Move this time around as that would violate the ethical standard of legitimate apartment locating.
