If you just want a specific service, such as: a full background report on an apartment you wish to rent, the flat cost for this is $250.

If you have a request that is not a basic apartment search, such as short-term, unusual circumstances (bankruptcy, no credit in the United States, or some other situation that requires a very specific solution) the cost will be slightly higher to accommodate the time it will take to help you.
