Fat Property partners with PayNearMe to allow cash payments at 100’s of locations throughout Houston.

To make it easier for our residents to pay rent, we’ve partnered with PayNearMe.  This will allow our tenants to pay your rent in cash at any of several stores that work with PayNearMe (Primarily supporting ACE Cash Express and CVS locations – though there is a map of locations that is constantly being updated).  Of course, we’ll still offer the option to pay online at our site via electronic check (preferred method) or credit card as well.

This week, our residents should receive an email or text from PayNearMe with instructions on how to make a cash rent payment at their nearest available location.  If you’re a resident who would like to use this service, and have not gotten a text or email with instructions, please contact your property manager or email payment@fatproperty.com

Interesting article on Houston Chronicle about our Winbern property

We love our little Winbern property.  Sadly, it’s in a bad shape.  And we face a bit of a chicken and egg problem. We hesitate to spend the effort to get it ready for a renter when we’re not sure if there is a demand for it.  Yet a renter won’t want it in it’s current shape.

Our solution has been to offer anyone that’s been interested a large budget to fix it up in any way that they see fit based on how they’d like to use the building.  Though that hasn’t yet worked as most people looking for a space want something that’s turn key read to go.  So it just sits there as the little-building-that-could until a loving user comes and wants it 🙂

A while ago (we forgot and never shared), Houston Cronicle ran a story about it in a series about intersting properties in our city.  Check it out.

Welcome to the family: Riverbrook!

Our newest property is Riverbrook Apartments.  This 208 unit portfolio of properties is made up of 1-2 bed traditional apartments at 9425 Scott Street.  Behind Scott Street, on Heno, are a few smaller buildings that also contain some 1-2 bed units.

Then, on three different streets behind Heno (Rockingham St, Dawson Ln, and Grassmere St) are about 75 duplexes.  The duplexes are 2 or 3 bed, 1 bath units.  In addition to those duplex units, some of the duplexes were combined into “super units” that are 4 or 6 bed, 2 bath units.

The properties feature an onsite leasing office available to answer any questions you have.  So give them a call to setup your viewing today.  Or email leasing@fatproperty.com and we’ll see that your request makes it over to them.
