How to Apply for an Apartment at Optima Sonoran Village

Fill out a rental application.

Applications for our Old Town Scottsdale apartments are available in our office, or you can apply online. If you prefer to complete your application in person, don't hesitate to contact our office to schedule an appointment with our leasing professionals.


You can submit your application online as well:

  • Visit our online application portal and register for a new account. There, you will be able to complete your application, check the status of your application, and manage multiple applications if necessary. 

  • The online platform will walk you through the application until you have completed all required fields.

  • All of your required documents can also be submitted online.

After you finish and submit your application, you'll be asked to submit your application fee. 


Pay the apartment application fee.

There is a $50 non-refundable application fee required for each applicant and a $400 non-refundable administrative fee per application (all fees are subject to a 1.75% tax). The fees are used to pay for the administrative costs associated with processing an application, including background checks, credit checks, and more.


Complete the credit and background checks.

Optima Sonoran Village required credit and background checks for every prospective resident. Completing the checks is easy and allows us to ensure that all potential residents are the right fit for our community. 


Submit proof of income.

Our policy requires all applicants to demonstrate that their collective (combined) gross income is at least three (3) times the monthly rent amount. We accept two forms of proof of income, one of which you will need to provide during the application process:

  • Two of your most recent pay stubs

  • Three months of current, consecutive bank or investment statements


If required, get a co-signer.

Depending on your credit history, we may request that you provide a co-signer on your application. 


Provide personal references.

Optima Sonoran Village also asks for personal references to be submitted. A leasing professional can provide you with additional details if needed.


Wait for the application to be processed.

Once you have completed and submitted all portions of the apartment application, our team will begin processing it. You will receive a notification once the processing is complete and if your application has been approved.


If approved, you will be sent a move-in cost sheet. Please review, e-sign, and return this document within three (3) days of receipt. Then, it's time to sign your lease.


Sign the lease and get ready to move in!

Finally, we will get your lease ready for you to sign. Once your lease is prepared, a member of our leasing team will contact you to schedule your move-in orientation. They will help you get set up with our mobile app (where you'll find many of your Optima Sonoran Village services and perks) and learn about everything our community has to offer. 


All that is left are getting the keys to your new apartment – welcome home!
