By allowing Heddy Finds Homes to organize, research and schedule appointments, we provide substantial savings in time and cost to our Clients, improve search efficiency and reduce stress.

Many Apartment communities do offer short-term leases. There is often a monthly premium attached to this flexibility. Heddy Finds Homes can also help find temporary housing, both furnished and unfurnished, including short-term options according to your wishes.
Landlords do not have to allow a lease break option, but it is not an unusual request. Most Apartment Communities do have some form of a 60-90 day lease break clause in their standard written leases. There can be black-out months when lease breaks are not permitted. Heddy Finds Homes offers an informed, educated approach to negotiating all leasing options.
If you are moving to the Milwaukee metro area from another Country, Heddy Finds Homes offers settling-in services in addition to our home finding services. These often include school, banking, and social security office visits. Settling-in services are customized to the specific needs of the Customer.
Heddy Finds Homes provides orientation tours to highlight Community schools, commercial, arts, and entertainment areas. Our orientations are designed to help new residents “find their way around town”, and to become familiar with the surrounding areas and their distinct features.
Yes. Many properties are pet-friendly. There can be breed and size restrictions, and other properties may limit the number of pets. Some properties may allow cats, but not dogs. Often there is an additional deposit required, and most apartment communities charge a monthly pet fee.
The terms for single-family homes, duplexes and condominiums will vary by property. If you wish to avoid doing snow removal and lawn care, then a condominium is a good choice. Duplex residents share outdoor spaces and can be required to manage snow removal and lawn care. Sometimes the Landlord/Owner will take care of one or both duties. Single-family home residents can expect to be responsible for snow removal and lawn care. If desired, professional services are available to help with these responsibilities.
Customers need to be wary, and not allow themselves to fall prey to rental scammers. Rental scammers often represent themselves as property managers or rental agents, or by misrepresenting homeowners by marketing a property that is actually for sale, or not on the market for rental or sale at all. Other tell-tale signs include posting online ads that ask for deposits not typical to local leasing practices, or that applications and deposits be sent outside of Wisconsin, or outside the United States.
