So many memories already here at our new home, after a hectic move to California Invitation Homes and their staff made it an easy process. Being I’m the military it’s not always easy but being in this house we realized Home is wherever our family is together. This house has been everything we have hoped for from pre-installed security system, safe neighborhood for my family and top-notch costumer service. We couldn’t imagine raising our little man anywhere else. Thank you, Invitation Homes.

Our family will never forget the opportunity Invitation Homes gave us to begin our new lives here in North Carolina. We’ve created so many new memories with our Daughter Ava in our new home including the one where we adopted our new dog Daisy. She needed a home and like you were there for us we were there for her. Thank for all the beautiful memories!

I love that I am able to provide a loving and caring household for my family through Invitation Homes. Some of the best memories were made here! Great neighborhood, love the school district and in the rare occasion I have a problem, the maintenance crew always deliver exceptional service! Couldn’t have chosen a better company for me and my family!

We love leasing with Invitation Homes because first and foremost the customer service is amazing and attention to any requests is made priority. The Smart Home feature makes us feel safe and reassured that the doors are locked, and the thermostat isn’t draining my bank account. We also absolutely love the yard; you will always find us enjoying sunny weekends out in the yard! Being a single mom living on my own these things are extremely important to me. When you’re lucky enough to find a place like this that instantly feels like home, you never want to leave.

We have been with Invitation Homes for over 3 years and just signed another 2 year lease! Invitation Homes has been there for us through every repair and even weather damage. We especially appreciate the timeliness and dedication they display when we have an issue or work order. It’s contests like these that make Invitation Homes a FUN and comforting place to rent from!
- Jessica P. – Northern California
I love leasing with Invitation Homes because they are pet friendly! As a newly single mom, looking for a home for my little family that allowed for us to bring our pup turned out to be a challenge. When I found Invitation Homes, everything seemed to fall perfectly into place. Thank you for helping make this transition in the four of our lives a positive new beginning!
- Billie H. – Atlanta
We moved from Florida to Georgia last year and of all the parts that go into a big move, the leasing, signing and obtaining keys from Invitation Homes was the easiest. A representative sent extra photos for me when I asked and now almost a year later my experience with the maintenance service has been just as easy and simple as the move-in process. Thanks for helping make our transition so smooth. We love being here and our home is a huge part of that.
- Patrice C. – Nashville
A home provides memories that last forever. After 1 year in our beautiful Invitation Home; we have celebrated college graduation, 1st big girl job and even tears with the 1st day of Senior High School Year! We are blessed & excited to create more adventures as Invitation Home truly has been a blessing to our family!
- Lincoln B. – Atlanta
After we found out my wife was pregnant with our first child I knew we were going to need a house since we had only been renting apartments up to that point. We knew we wanted to rent a home from a respectable company with lots of experience in leasing homes. With their up to date web portal, smart home features, and professional management team we knew Invitation Homes was the way to go. With the option to go and see prospective rentals on our own time really saved us a lot of stress during this milestone in our lives.
- Irene S. – Tampa
I’m a mother, wife and stage 4 cancer patient. Leasing from Invitation Homes has made my life so much easier and has provided us a home to make as many memories as possible with our family. Thank you, Invitation Homes!
- Kelly H. – Atlanta
Our Invitation Home is in a safe neighborhood. Our children are able to play and interact with other children as well as enjoy the fabulous pool amenity with no safety concerns. I have personally dealt with the ProCare team on numerous occasions. My needs are met promptly and always with the highest level of customer service. As an Invitation Homes resident I have a sense of comfort knowing that my family is safe and I can depend on IH to address any home concerns that may arise.
- Gwyneth F. – Carolinas
My husband and I love leasing from Invitation Homes, because they take the worry out of having a home! The first week we moved from FL to NC, it was freezing temperatures and started to snow and we had no heat! Invitation Homes came to our rescue in record time and had our heat running so we could enjoy our new home! We love the peace of mind that leasing from Invitation Homes has given us, and allowed us to fully enjoy life without worrying about issues with our Home!
- Renee W. – Atlanta
My children and I LOVE leasing from Invitation Homes because the staff have been nothing but prompt, courteous and professional since the day we moved in two years ago. We have submitted many maintenance requests, all to which have been addressed in a prompt and excellent manner. Our ranch house sits in a cul-de-sac and has lovely curb appeal, is clean, well-maintained and inviting. Our neighborhood is safe and in one of the best school districts in East Cobb. We have enjoyed the neighbors, as well as the neighborhood pool all summer long and just signed another 2 year lease because we can’t imagine leaving. Thank you, IH, for allowing us to live here and to make wonderful memories!
- Desiree Spence – N. California
I made the jump from an apartment to a rental home. I can say that finding a rental house with Invitation Homes was the best choice for my family! Not only did I find a home that kept my children in their same school, we were able to meet our neighbors that made me feel more at ease about living here and signing a lease.
Renting is not always easy, but I found that with renting from I.H. they are available 24/7 for any repair calls, responsive and their staff are courtesy at all times. You don’t always find this with an apartment complex. We have been here over 5 years and are proud to call this our home.
- Tami M. – Seattle
This is my second Invitation Home! When I had to look for a new place to live, I knew I’d rent again from Invitation Homes. Their homes are so well maintained, and everyone — from my leasing agent to the maintenance team — is always so nice to me. They really work hard to make sure their residents are happy. My daughter *just* left for college, and I’m living here alone now. I know if I need any help with my home, I can call and someone will be here.
- Rosanna C. – Phoenix
I am a single mom of three beautiful kids and we have been leasing with Invitation Homes for 2 years and we love it. We have not had any issues that IH has not been able to help us with. As a single mom it is very important to be able to count with excellent service from such a prestige company. Myself and my kids Alex, Nickie and Gaby are very lucky to have come across such a wonderful experience renting with Invitation Homes. Thank you IH for making things so much easier for me and my children. 🙂
- Amy T. – Dallas
As a military family with pets we tend to have to move around a lot. Renting from Invitation homes was easy and their pet policy made it an easy decision on who to rent from.
- Alexis W. – Houston
We love the feeling of safety and security our home provides with smart lock. Whenever we leave in a hurry and aren’t sure if we locked the door all we have to do is log into the app. This has been a lifesaver so many times.
