How Do I See a Madison Gardens Apartment?

We welcome you to contact our leasing agent Brian Cowger at MadisonGardens@OffCampusHousing.com to make an appointment.

Speak with one of our knowledgeable Leasing Assistants at (540) 434-5150 for any questions you cannot find on our site.

How Much is Due at Signing?

The down-payment for Madison Gardens, $530/bedroom, and the entire amount is due at lease signing.  Here’s the breakdown:

$30 – Key Fee

$250 – Routine Systems Maintenance Fee

$250 – Security Deposit (Refundable)

The $530 down-payment must be paid via check/money order ONLY. We cannot accept cash payments. Please make payments payable to Matchbox Realty.

Joint Account vs Individual Accounts

As long as we receive a Guaranty of Lease from each tenant (essentially a co-signer), you will be liable for your 33.33% of the monthly rent  instead of jointly/severally responsible for the full amount of rent each month.  The view a sample of the Guaranty of Lease, but you & your roommates will each receive a physical copy at lease signing.  Keep in mind that any damages/deductions are joint/several.

Is Madison Gardens a Pet Friendly Community?

YES! The down payment is $400 ($200 refundable; $200 nonrefundable to deodorize & deflea). The monthly pet rent ranges from $25-50 per month depending on the size of the pet. If you would like to get a cat/dog, we’ll need written approval from all your roommates (a simple email to the Property Manager is perfect!) before a Pet Lease can be signed.  Please keep in mind that aggressive breeds (Rottweiler’s or Pit Bulls) are not allowed. German Sheppard’s & Bulldogs are considered on a case-by-case basis.

What is the average cost of utilities?

As with any residence, utility expenses depend entirely on usage.  From our experience, we’ve found that water and electric combined range between $35-45/person.

Application

If you haven’t already please fill out an application online. There will be a $40 application fee due at the end. You can pay via debit/credit card. If you do not fill out an application, you cannot sign the lease agreement because we have no way to enter you into our system.  EACH future resident must complete an application.

Roommates

We need the first & last names of each tenant, (no nicknames) so we can prepare the lease beforehand.

Lease End Date

All leases are 11.5 months, and end dates are scattered throughout the summer.  Let us know your preferred lease end date.

Flooring & Layouts

Let us know your preferred floor.

Signing Appointment

Let us know a time & date that works for EVERYONE to come to the Matchbox office to sign, so we can set-up a lease signing appointment. The office address is 202 N Liberty St. Suite 101, Harrisonburg, Va 22802.

Leasing Video

If you want to save a TON of time, grab some popcorn and watch our leasing video. You will be quizzed to ensure you’ve watched the full 20-minutes.  Our Property Manager will be happy to answer any additional questions you have at lease signing.
