Who we are:

We have been providing all-inclusive, easy living since 2013!  We Believe every person should have an affordable and safe place to call home.

About our Rooms:

Our rooms are in Silver Spring, College Park, and Beltsville. They include all utilities, are fully furnished, and have complimentary high-speed internet and complimentary twice a month maid cleaning of the common areas (kitchens, bathrooms, for example). Each house has a Netflix subscription you can enjoy. We are proud of our inclusivity and diverse residents. Some are working, some are schooling, and some are doing both. We have both male and females in our properties. Our room are currently for only one person. Smoking is not permitted on our properties.

Security Deposits:

Security Deposits are $500 (and no more than a month’s rent depending on the circumstance) and are required to secure the room. If you commit to a room by providing your security deposit, the room is officially yours and we remove it from our list of available rooms. If you decide later not to move in as agreed, you then forfeit your deposit and it’s not returned. Otherwise, when you move in as agreed, your deposit is returned to you when you leave unless there’s unpaid rent, damage or etc., for some reason.

Application Process:

We have an application process that includes an online questionnaire. You’ll also send us a copy of your legal ID (such as a driver’s license or passport). You’ll also be asked to complete a background and credit check to ensure there are no felonies or evictions. You pull the checks your so it’s a “soft pull” and doesn’t harm your credit. Bad credit is fine, but we’re unable to consider those with felonies, evictions, violent crimes or theft. A safe environment for our residents is our priority and is non-negotiable.

Why you should rent from us:

Rooms at Emerald Home is the logical choice for those who see the big picture and need more flexibility, freedom, and power over their living environment. We take great care of our residents and do our best to keep them happy and comfortable. You’ll enjoy complimentary high-speed internet, Netflix, and twice a month maid cleaning of all the common areas. Your lease is a fantastic value – rent includes all utilities among other perks which makes budgeting easy and stress free.

Freedom & Flexibility of a Month-to-Month Lease:

Our month-to-month lease means you can leave anytime you’re ready as long as you give us at least a 30-day notice. Your lease gives you the type of freedom rarely found when many try to lock you in for at least a year! We are not the cheapest or the most expensive, but we are the Best Value. 

It’s our priority to make sure you have what you need to feel comfortable and that we communicate and treat you with respect and appreciation.
