Sprenger Properties 

Future Tenants

Why rent from Sprenger Properties?

1. We offer a rent to own option.  You are not obligated to purchase, but after a year of on-time rental payments you have the option to buy the home with financing provided. 

2. We are not to big, but we are not to small.  We're not so big that you will be treated like a number, but we're big enough to have a full time handyman plus several part time staff.  This helps us be responsive to your needs.

3. We work at improving our properties and keeping them well maintained.  As an example we do inspections every 6 months, during the inspection we take care of minor maintence items.
