Room To Move.
If your needs change while you are a Storyboard resident, we'll accommodate it. We offer a range of rentals from studios to townhomes – making it easier to handle what life throws at you. Whether you're growing a family, wanting to age in-place, or switching jobs - we'll save you up to 50% on move-in fees if you move to another Storyboard community.
Your password-protected portal allows you to view your payment history, print rent receipts, make repair requests, view important notices or documents, and update your information anytime (and from anywhere). Save money on postage and never worry about lost mail. Set up one-time or recurring secure bank transfers or eChecks with no convenience fees.
Utility Connection Concierge.
One call with our utility concierge sets up utility, cable, and internet services - and helps you get the best promos and discount codes available. This is a great way to stay compliant with your lease and ensure utilities are transferred for your move-in. Utility providers that require you to set up the connection in-person will still need to be visited in those instances.
We report every rent payment so you build credit. Average increases of 23 to 42 points in resident scores are common, so you can qualify for more credit and save hundreds with lower interest rates. For existing residents, we can report up to the past 24 months for an immediate boost so you don't miss out on this new perk. Credit reporting will be visible for all adults on the lease within 60 days of payment.
Resident Rewards Program.
Rent day is now rewards day. You'll get cash, gift cards, and exclusive discounts you can use to save up to $4500/year on everyday expenses. We've partnered with the first rewards and credit building program for renters. When you use the app you get amazing rewards just for confirming your on-time rent payments. You'll even save on everyday expenses in the online marketplace.
Four-Legged Friends Welcome.
We care about providing a nurturing and welcoming pet-friendly environment for most breeds. Unfortunately, we can’t allow Akitas, Alaskan Malamutes, American Staffordshire Terriers, Bull Mastiffs, Chow Chows, Doberman Pinschers, German Shepherds, Huskies, Mastiffs (including Bull Mastiffs, Cane Corso Mastiffs, English Mastiffs, Italian Mastiffs, Neopolitan Mastiffs, and Tibetan Mastiffs), Pit Bulls, Presa Canarios, Rottweilers, and Wolf hybrids. In addition, the Russian Bear Dog is not permitted at this time.
Around the Clock Maintenance.
You can submit a maintenance request in the Resident Portal at any time. After we review the request, having the repair completed can be as simple as opening the door for our maintenance team. Our team is friendly, prompt, and gets the job done right. If you give us permission to enter, we can take care of it while you are out - no hassle and no mess!
We know life doesn't always go as planned, and we want our residents to be protected from the financial drain that can come with life's unexpected events like a fire or flood. Our protection options are affordable and will allow you to be compliant with the lease since you're covered with $100k in liability and $10k of personal property coverage.
Your health and well-being is a driving force behind what we do. That's why we aim to provide an experience free of smoke and other pollutants. You'll never have to worry about moving into an apartment that smells like smoke, or living in a building that may have a fire due to indoor smoking. If you live in one of our communities, you will need to commit to not smoking indoors.
Resident Referral Program.
You can refer a friend and receive $325 off of your next month's rent! You can refer as many friends as you want, and as often as you'd like. The referrer must be a current resident at a Storyboard Living community, and the referral must move in and pay their first month's rent. You'll get rent discounts and get to live closer to your friends. The more the merrier!
Friendly Team Members.
Our friendly team is available to answer all your questions and is dedicated to providing the wonderful living experience you deserve. From the time you inquire about our communities and throughout your stay, we treat you with the utmost care.
Discounts for Heroes.
If you are a military, healthcare, and law enforcement professional, you'll get $100 off of first months' rent. Proof of employment required. This may be applicable to you if you work at Scott Air Force Base, St. Elizabeth's Hospital, Memorial Hospital, Barnes-Jewish Hospital, Southern Illinois Healthcare, law enforcement agencies, or many other important places of employment.
Flexible Rental Payments.
You should be the boss of when and how you pay rent. When your payments are aligned with your income, you worry less and enjoy life more. One of our partners can help you with rent payments by making your full payment when it is due, and allowing you to pay the remaining balance with them at a cost much lower than late fees (and without hurting your payment history).
Home Buying Assistance.
If your goal is homeownership, we'll help you get there by holding education sessions at our office and introducing you to a vetted realtor who will work with you until you find the home of your dreams. In addition, we will also introduce you to lenders, and other vendors that may be helpful in your pursuit. Credit building with on-time rent payments will also help to secure a mortgage!
