Renting a home in Washington, D.C. is relatively easy. You find the property you want to rent, submit an application, and follow the property manager’s guidelines. Each aspiring tenant submits an application fee with their application, for example, plus provides personal information to begin the background and credit checks. Tenants are then reviewed by the property’s owner. 

What is the application fee to rent a house in D.C.?

Every property management company assesses a different fee for the application process. The amount is not regulated by law, but typically averages  between $30 and $80 and pays for a credit check and background check.

What do you need to rent a house in D.C.?

To rent a home in the D.C. area, you will need funds to submit as an application fee, your Social Security number, contact information, employment history and monthly income, number of pets, your criminal and rental histories, your credit score, and the number of people who will be living in the home. Applicants who do not have proof of income will likely need a co-signer.

Renting a home involves one-time and ongoing fees. One-time amounts include the application fee, security deposit, pet deposit, move-in fees, and paying for a moving company or truck to relocate your belongings. Ongoing costs include utilities payments and renters insurance. It’s important to ask about additional fees, too, including monthly pet rent, parking fees, costs to use on-site amenities, and whether there is a schedule for rent increases.

Which Washington, D.C. neighborhood is the cheapest to live in?

If you’re looking for the most affordable areas in D.C., it may be best to consider neighborhoods such as Mt. Pleasant, Capitol Hill, H Street Corridor, Brookland, or Takoma.

The neighborhood that is “best” for you will depend on your specific needs. You will want to live in a home and area that fit your budget, which depends on your current financial situation, the number of roommates you will have to split the monthly costs, and your current employment status. You will also need to look into factors like whether the area is convenient for commuting to and from your place of work by car or public transit.

Understanding the Ledger

Your portal includes a ledger with all transactions. The ledger is populated with data in real-time as transactions flow through our accounting software. Much of this information is also available in the Reports area, as well as the Statements in your Documents library, but the ledger is the most comprehensive resource for diving into the details. 

Please scroll through the sections below to get a better understanding of how to interpret the ledger. 

By default, transactions are sorted chronologically:

Owner Ledger Dates
  • The date reflected in the lefthand column is the actual transaction date, not the “bill date”. This is the date the transaction was actually processed. 

If you have multiple properties with Nomadic, you'll see the address for each transaction in the "Location" column:

Ledger Property Column
  • You can filter the ledger to look at just one property, all properties, or specific sets of properties. 
  • If you only have one property with us, you’ll just see the ledger for that property. 

The Description column displays the transaction type:

Owner Ledger Description Column
  • BILL: this is an expense transaction, such as for repair costs or management fees.
  • CHARGE: this is a transaction  billed to the tenant, most typically a rent payment. 
  • NACHA EXPORT: this is a credit we processed to your distribution account. This type of transaction is how you get paid! 

The Amount column shows the dollar value of each transaction:

Owner Ledger Amount Column
  • Positive Amounts: if an amount is positive, it reflects a transaction that is payable to you. Typically, this will be a rent payment that we collected from your tenants. On occasion, a positive number could also signify a journal entry or credit adjustment. 
  • Negative Amounts:  if an amount is negative, this is a transaction that is either payable to Nomadic or is an amount that has already been paid to you. Typically this will be for repair costs or management/leasing fees. Owner draws (net distributions into your checking/savings account) also reflect as negative amounts, since they have already been paid to you. 

The Account Balance column shows a sum of positive/negative transactions at a given point in time:

Owner Ledger Account Balance Column
  • Account Balance should always equal zero after a net distribution has been processed. When the balance is zero, this means that all expenses have been paid and you’ve received the remainder as net operating income, leaving a balance of zero (meaning: no one is due any money, as all funds have been distributed appropriately). 

Navigating the Propertyware Owner Portal

How do net distributions work?

Net distributions keep your accounting clean and simple. Each month we’ll collect rent from the tenants, deduct any repair expenses for the previous month and any management/leasing fees for the current month, and credit the remaining net operating income to your account. 

Net Distribution

You’ll receive a statement via email each time a net distribution is processed, and can view all transaction details in your Propertyware owner portal.
