4. Move in without worry


Your place is move-in ready so you can get settled instantly and comfortably. Just enter the property anytime within your move-in date. We’ll give you a code to get the keys from the secure lockbox.

StreetCred can be your ticket to owning your own home. It’s a credit that you get a portion of as cash back when you buy a home through Poplar Homes. Twenty percent of your monthly rent goes towards your StreetCred balance. The longer you rent with us, the more StreetCred you earn!

2. How can I use my Poplar StreetCred?


To redeem your Poplar StreetCred credits, simply assign us as your buyer’s agent when you’re ready to buy any home in any location (that we’re licensed in). We’ll let you know exactly how much cash back you’ll earn after selecting your home to purchase. Within a few weeks after closing escrow, you’ll receive a check. You may use these funds to cover closing costs in your transaction up to the allowable limits of your mortgage lender.
