What is June Homes?

At June Homes, our mission is to make renting an apartment as easy and stress-free as possible. We make applying simple and seamless, charge no hidden fees, and take care of the little things. All of our homes are fully furnished, and include Netflix/HBO, monthly delivery of home supplies, WiFi and utilities for $125-$200/month. If you have any issues, we’re available with 24-hour support.

All of our apartments are available with flexible terms, meaning you can lease for 1–18 months. New to the city? Consider moving in for two months and then trying out a new neighborhood. Need a roommate? We also offer shared homes to our member-only community. Our design team ensures that each home meets our elevated standards, and you can select between furnished or unfurnished. It’s your call. It’s your home.

How is June Homes responding to COVID-19?

June Homes is a place where members feel safe and taken care of. During these uncertain times, we are being extra careful to ensure the comfort and well-being of our members.

All new members undergo a survey with questions about their recent travel details, and are asked to declare if they have experienced any of the COVID-19 symptoms: sore throat, fever, dry cough, aches or diagnosis of COVID-19.

At June Homes, we take your health and safety very seriously. In light of these unprecedented times, we have taken the following precautions.

Home tours are conducted virtually as often as possible, through our quality video conferencing with a caring team member. If we visit in person, we comply with all safety regulations (wear a mask, distance and limit the time spent in the unit). Extra sanitization instated in all shared homes, and quality professional cleaning strictly implemented before & after stays. Remote check-in & 24/hr virtual support via our app, phone & email. To learn more about symptoms and prevention, please visit the official overview outlined by the World Health Organization: https://www.who.int/health-topics/coronavirus#tab=tab_1.

Does June Homes own all apartments?

We’re home creators, not homeowners. We’re here to handle the details every step of the way to make renting stress-free and easier for you. We partner and sign agreements with landlords who own the apartments, then bring in our team of expert designers to upgrade, design and furnish the space. We work around the clock, 24/7, to handle any questions or issues that may arise during your search and stay.

What kinds of apartments and rooms do you have?

Nice ones! But, to be more precise, we have one bedroom apartments, studios, private rooms in shared homes, and multi bedroom apartments available. Apartments can either be fully furnished or unfurnished.

Are all apartments fully furnished?

Most of our apartments come fully furnished but we provide you the option to rent unfurnished. If you wish to remove all of the furniture, let our team know prior to move in. There is a $200 one-time furniture removal fee.

Do you have anyone assisting me at move-in or move-out?

Easy-does-it is our mantra, we want to make your move-in and move-out as simple and easy as possible. Our normal process is that move-in and move-out is coordinated directly with our Member Care team. You’ll get detailed instructions (including video) and door codes via email and your June Homes app. You can move in at your convenience this way. However, if you need further assistance, please reach out to our member care team and we can help where possible with a more customized solution.

Is there a minimum stay requirement?

The minimum stay is one-month. To be frank, we’d miss you if it were any shorter.

How does the dynamic pricing work?

We get it seems complicated at first, but we promise you: it’s something you’re already familiar with. Think booking a flightor even a rideshare car; when there’s a time with a lot of demand, prices go up a bit. And, the longer you stay, the less expensive the rate. To see your price, look on the apartment listing page. To lock in your price, fill out the Membership Initiation Form.

Will I move into the exact same furniture featured in the listing imagery?

In most cases: yes. However, occasionally a piece of furniture or decor may be replaced with similar looking items with similar functionality purposes. This is in order to keep everything in your home in prime condition.

What if I want to terminate my signed agreement early?

We understand that sometimes plans change and you may need to move out earlier than the dates of your agreement. Usually, we partner closely with you to find a replacement that will take over the remaining dates of your term. As soon as a new member is ready to move in – you are released from the date of their move in. Alternatively, you can move to any other of our homes for $200.

Is there parking available?

For most of our homes, we have on-street parking as the only option. When parking is available, we’ve cited it in the home description.

What if I don’t know exactly how long I want to stay?

These uncertain times make it hard to plan ahead. So, we’ve introduced our Month-To-Month Flexibility Policy, which allows you to cancel your contract at any time, after you move-in, with 30-days notice from the end of any month. So, if today is mid-September and you notified us you wished to move out – you’ll be free from liabilities as of October 31st. The price for your Month-To-Month plan is fixed and does not change during the whole stay; simply add $200 for a room or $350 for an entire apartment to our regular base rates.

How can I move in without having to pay a deposit?

Did you know once we approve your application (650 credit + income requirements) you can move in deposit free when you sign up with our partner, Jetty? Jetty Deposit helps you meet security deposit coverage requirements, at the fraction of the cost of a traditional cash deposit. The amount you'll pay is a one time fee equal to ~17.5% from the usual deposit amount you'd pay. We receive the bond you sign with Jetty, and you move in deposit-free!. Head to jetty.com/junehomes complete the form and sign up.

How do I become a member?

After touring with us and picking your home, you will need to fill out an application form, sent to you via email. You will simply need to upload the required documents to verify your identity and the ability to pay. These may include​, but are not limited to: government ID, employment/student status, bank statements and tax returns, pay-stubs, visa/work permit (if applicable). After we receive these documents, we will review and respond within 24 hours, tops. Once approved, you will be sent ​an agreement to sign electronically, and an online invoice to pay your upfront payments. After signing and paying, you’re officially a June Homes Member. Pop the cork! We have a simplified approval process for all stays under 2-months, where the full term ends up to be prepaid. In these cases, we request only the basics: a government ID and a credit score of above 650.

How do I qualify as a June Homes member?

Two important things can qualify you as a June Homes Member:

  1. Proof that your monthly income is 3x the monthly fee & proof of an 650 credit score.
  2. Proof that you have 60x the monthly fee in cash assets & an above 650 credit score.

If you don't meet these requirements, you can apply with a guarantor who will need to have either:

  1. A credit score above 650 and proof that their monthly income is 5x the monthly fee.
  2. 80x the monthly fee in cash assets with an above 650 credit score.

Please note: each application is assessed on a case-by-case basis and we are often open to flexibility based on your circumstances.

What are my upfront costs?

Upon signing the agreement, the security deposit and your first month’s rent are due. If you’re moving in after the stroke of midnight on the 15th of a month, we also require the prepayment for the following month.

How much is the security deposit?

The security deposit is equal to the amount of one monthly fee for qualified members.

How much is the monthly membership fee, and what does it cover?
  • For shared apartments: the fee is $125 per month and it covers monthly delivery of supplies like dish soap, dishwasher pods, trash bags, paper towels, toilet paper and laundry detergent, Wi-Fi, and Cable TV. Plus, all utilities. So you can kiss those pesky random household bills goodbye.
  • For entire apartments: the fee is $200 covering all the utilities costs & WI-Fi.

In less than 24-hours on any working day. Our member care team actually wear skates to work. Try us!

Can I bring my pet?

Most of our homes are not the best fit for pets. Homes that allow pets are marked as “pet friendly’ on our website & listings.

What is a home share?

A shared apartment means that you will be sharing the common spaces (kitchen, bathroom and living room) with one or multiple roommates who are also part of the June member network and went through background checks and approval.

You’re legally responsible only for your portion of rent. Please note that none of the bedrooms in our home shares have exterior door locks as per New York City laws.

Can I meet my roommates?

Due to privacy restrictions, we are unable to share information about other members. However, we are able to send your details to your future roommates and they can reach out to you directly. We see a delicious glass of wine being shared very soon. Perhaps a cheeseboard, too.

What is the Member Portal?

The Member Portal is the source of all important updates and information on the inner workings of your June experience. It includes things like the WiFi password, the cleaning service and garbage collection schedule. Whenever you have a maintenance request or a general question, you can submit a ticket via your Member Portal and we will get back to you within the day. The portal can be accessed through your account via browser or on the JuneHomes App.

What happens if I lose a key or get locked out?

No use crying over lost keycodes. It happens to the best of us – especially after a prosecco or two. We make ourselves available 24/7 to bail you out if needed. In the event you are locked out and a June Homes representative is called to resolve the issue, there is a $100 lock out fee applied. If a member loses their key, a key replacement fee of $100 is applied.

Do you hold tours of my home during my stay?

Yes, we allow potential members to see any home in person during reasonable hours on weekdays and weekends. We always give advance notice of future showings, and appreciate your understanding of this.

Our Promise: At this time of COVID-19, whenever we conduct in-person tours we make sure to abide by all safety regulations.

Can I extend my stay?

Yes, please do! Just email us with your request and once approved, we will send an extension agreement and adjust your reservation accordingly. We will also remind you of 60 and 30 days out. Happy days.

Am I able to relocate to another June Homes location during my agreement?

Absolutely. Once your application is approved, you have access to all of our homes. If you have moved in already, and would like to relocate, we can accommodate relocation to a new space with a monthly fee equal or higher to your current agreement. We require 30-days written notice in advance and we apply a $200 relocation fee. And don't worry, we will transfer your security deposit to your new room, saving you a bit of extra cash for whatever it is you like to spend it on.

How do I pay?

Good question. Payments are made online through two secure platforms used by our accounting team. We recommend our members to use ACH or direct deposit because it’s free, but for a small convenience fee (~3%) we also allow international and credit card payments. Please note, we do not accept PayPal, Venmo, paper checks, gift cards, or prepaid cards.

Couples policy

A number of our homes are great for couples as well. We charge an additional $250 monthly fee for couples.

Visitors policy

We would also want to show off our home if we were you. Here’s our policy to keep all our homes happy. Daytime visitors may visit anytime between 10:00 AM - 10:00 PM. The member must be present when there are visitors. We allow up to 2 daytime visitors at a time. If you would like to invite more than 2 Daytime visitors at once, consent from all other Members is required. A friend that stays past 10:00 PM is considered an overnight visitor.

All overnight visitors must be registered through the June Homes App, for the safety and consideration of all your housemates. Their full name and phone number are required. If needed, we can send your visitor access to the home. There is a maximum limit of 8 overnight visitors per month, only one at a time. If the visitor stays for more than eight (8) nights, the host shall be charged for the daily rate of the host’s room price for their guest, in addition to their license fee.

June Homes Members take full responsibility for their visitors. Any violation or damage caused by a visitor is considered the Member's violation and June Homes policies apply accordingly. TL;DR: be a good human and exercise care when inviting people into your shared home.

Parking Policy

For most of our homes, we have on-street parking as the only option. When parking is available, we’ve cited it in the home description.

Pets

Most of our homes are not the best fit for pets. Homes that allow pets are marked with “pet friendly” signs.

Do you show my home during my stay?

June Homes offers potential members to see all available homes in person during reasonable hours (depends on the home) on weekdays and weekends. We always give our existing members heads up of future showings.

What payment options do I have?

All of our members issue payments online through two secure platforms used by our accounting team. We recommend our members to use ACH or direct deposit for free, but for a small convenience fee (~3%) we also allow international and credit card payments. We do not accept American Express, PayPal, Venmo, paper checks, gift cards, or prepaid cards.

How soon will I receive my security deposit after move-out date?

We refund security deposit within 14 business days, but usually much faster🙂

June Homes Members Right of First Refusal

If we receive a membership inquiry for your space upon your move-out, you will receive an automated 24 hour priority notice asking if you would like to extend your stay. You will have the right of first refusal to match the new applicant's dates and monthly price. If we do not receive a response from you within the allotted 24 hour window, your room will be offered to the new member and we will request your move-out as per the signed agreement. As an existing June Homes member, you will always be prioritized for other homes within our network. However, if it is less than 30 days from your end date, we reserve the right to sell the room.

When is my stay and price guaranteed?

After you sign your agreement with June Homes, we lock your price and no longer change it until the end of your agreement. Please note that we reserve a right to change your price after your agreement ends. June Homes uses a dynamic pricing model and all rates depend on the selected home, room, duration of stay, move-in date, move-out date and other factors that we do not disclose. After the agreement is signed, your price is final, non negotiable and is locked for the duration of your agreement.

Am I able to re-locate to other June Homes?

Yes! Once your Membership Initiation is approved, you have access to all of our homes. If you have moved in already, and have decided to relocate, we can accommodate a relocation to space with a monthly fee equal or higher to your current agreement. We require written notice 30 days in advance and we apply a $200 relocation fee. And don't worry - we will transfer your security deposit to your new room!

What is a shared apartment?

A shared apartment means that you will be sharing the common spaces (kitchen, bathroom and living room) with one or multiple roommates who are also part of the June member network and went through background checks and approval.

You’re legally responsible only for your portion of rent, which is fully reflected on the paperwork we sign. Please note that none of the bedrooms in our home shares have exterior door locks as per New York City laws, and in all other cities we allow door locks.We can install these upon request for a $30 installation fee.

Who are my roommates? How can I be sure this is safe?

Safety is the number one priority for us. Every member is fairly vetted and goes through extensive criminal and background checks, as well as a 3-step approval process that includes in-person interviews with our team. A set of strict, yet reasonable rules is enforced in all of our homes. Our members tend to be a mix of creative, hard-working professionals and students. Most members are moving within the same city, though we have many tenants from around the US and world.

Can I reach out to my roommates before I move in?

Due to privacy restrictions, we are unable to share identifying information about our current members. However, we are able to send your details to your future roommates and they can reach out to you directly, if they choose. We see a delicious glass of wine being shared very soon. Perhaps a cheeseboard, too.

Can I move in with my partner as a couple?

Sure! Couples are welcomed into selected homes for an additional $250 per month in select rooms. Just look for the icon that says ‘couple-friendly’ on our listings.
