American Homes 4 Rent says all of its listings are for pet-friendly homes that are smoke-free. The company checks every home against its Certified Property standards, which includes rules for maintenance, paint, carpet, appliances and safety inspections. The certification renews every six months and again for every new resident.

After you sign up for an account and find homes that match your search criteria, use the Let Yourself In option to tour the home. American Homes 4 Rent explains you do not need an appointment with an agent to tour its homes. Enter your credit card account information or identification to verify your identity, and then authorize your phone number on the website. Any homes with the Let Yourself In button below the listing are available to tour on your own without an agent. The website gives you an electronic lockbox to unlock the front door. When you find the home that suits your needs, sign the lease with American Homes 4 Rent to begin moving in and paying rent.
