Exclusive Specials and Discounts

Our clients can gain exclusive access to lease specials that other tenants and applicants cannot utilize. Our clout in the off-campus (West Campus, North Campus, Hyde Park) leasing market gives us an upper hand that allows us to pass-along to our clients special deals.

Hand-Holding throughout the Leasing Process

Our agents will help walk you through your lease paperwork and required fees so you aren’t surprised with any “gotcha’s”! We will also explain all the steps to your parents or any other relevant parties. While some properties try to confuse tenants, we will make the leasing process easy to understand for first time tenants and pro-renters alike.

Kevin got me an amazing deal for a studio before they all ran out! He also drove us around to other apartments that weren’t in the agenda so that we can get better estimates on lease prices.

Jacob + Sidda were extremely helpful in getting me + my roommates into our new place. They went to bat for us with the management of our complex when we were having difficulty getting our preferred unit. We got a great rate & all the amenities we were looking for in a great location. Jacob was really knowledgeable about the area. He was very friendly and offered to go inspect the quality of a unit himself when the management wanted us to sign at a unit other than the one we toured in. He was receptive and considerate of things like neighborhood noise and safety (two really important things in West Campus). Before Housing Scout, I was really struggling to find a place to live. They made both the hunt and the paperwork simple (almost) stress-free. I definitely recommend them.

Worked with my housing scout Richard, and he was amazing. Within in a week of working with me and my roommates needs for housing he was able to find us a place that we ended up signing and love living at. I can’t recommend Richard, and Housing Scout enough, all their agents are so insightful and knowledgable they can work with anyones needs and find them a place in no time.

Richard Waterhouse is the realtor to call if you’re searching for an apartment in Austin! He was very responsive and found the perfect apartment for our sons. We tried searching on our own but were unable to find anything available on short notice. Richard diligently searched and found a great unit available for immediate move in. And he coordinated with the leasing company and followed up to be sure all went smoothly. Professional and pleasant – 5 star service!

This review is for Richard Waterhouse in particular, but everyone at Housing Scout is very nice, helpful, and professional. Richard helped me out of a very tough situation. To make a long story short, I was a tricky client who had specific housing needs and requests, and I needed to find a suitable place fast. Richard did not rest until he found several outstanding options for me. Throughout the entire process, Richard was constantly updating my list of possible housing locations and he remained patient and professional, even as my situation became more and more complicated. Richard is the type of agent who will go to bat for his clients, work on the weekends, pull strings, make sacrifices, and get the job done, no matter what it takes. If you are going to use Housing Scout, which is a wonderful resource, utilize Housing Scout’s most valuable resource – Richard Waterhouse.

I thought searching for a good place in Austin would take lots of time but thanks to Richard Waterhouse, it couldn’t have been easier. I was able to tell him everything I wanted in a place to stay and he always had great suggestions. Working with him really did make my experience with Housing Scout one to remember.
