Found a home?
We'll assume your lease!


It's the Apartment Dwellers Trade-In program!


You've heard of our ‘Buy Before You Sell’ program: Now you can buy before your lease is up. Did you find the perfect home, but are bound by the terms of your current apartment lease? If you’re on the fence about breaking your current lease, you can rest easy. Howard Hanna will relieve you of that obligation when you buy a home.
