Rental Information

We offer affordable, exceptionally well-maintained, family-owned-and-managed apartments, condominiums, and homes for rent throughout the Washington Metropolitan Area. Whether you're looking for a single family home close to the city or in a suburban setting, Joy Development has a housing solution for you. And if you're looking for that weekend retreat in beautiful Western Maryland, we have several single family and multifamily options from which to choose.

Tenant-as-Landlord Approach

Our management division is a family-owned business that has managed only company-owned rental properties in the Washington area for over 30 years. Our success derives from the tenant-as-landlord relationship we foster with our residents. Through this unique approach, our tenants are expected to take resposibility for the maintenance and minor repairs of their homes as if they were the owners. In return, we offer slightly below market rents and greater autonomy to the residents. We personally handle all remaining facets of the property's management with expert knowledge developed from years of daily contact with tenants, trades people, and community leaders.

Our family helps you find the ideal home to suit your needs, and then we facilitate the entire process for you - from application completion, to understanding and signing the lease, to scheduling and provisioning your move-in, and ultimately to getting comfortable in your new home. This turnkey approach makes the sometimes difficult process of relocating your residence far less stressful. To everyone at the Joy Development family, allowing you to feel at home in one of our homes is our most important goal!
