How long is the waiting list?
The length of time on the waiting list varies by property/project. This can be anywhere from six (6) months to two (2) years.
The amount of time an applicant remains on the waiting list is subject to change because there are factors beyond our control, such as; unit availability, unit turnover, leasing schedule processes, priorities, and transfers.
HAGC has no way of knowing how many vacancies it will have in the coming months and years. This is why we cannot tell you exactly when you will reach the top of a waiting list.
