What do the utilities for this apartment cost? (if utilities are not included in the rent)


This varies based on each tenant’s usage – some use more electricity than others and some keep their heat set at a higher setting than others. We strongly suggest that you call Rochester Gas & Electric to find out what the average of the past 12 month’s usage is to give you an idea, but again, your usage may be different. RG&E Customer Service can be reached at 800-743-2110. Just make sure to specify the property address and apartment number (if there is one).

How does your Rent-to-Own Program work?


We can lease you the home with the exclusive right to purchase it at a later date. Our buyers love it because it gives them the time they need to save up for a larger down payment, time to clean up past credit problems or time to sell another home before buying. 100% of your Non Refundable Purchase Option Consideration is credited toward the purchase price of the home, plus you may be eligible to receive a monthly credit towards the purchase price every time you pay your lease on time.
