    To get the best places and be ahead of the crowd, you need to be prepared. You can gain an edge over others by following these few simple steps:

    1. Know your credit score. If you don’t have a recent credit report, get one before you start looking for an apartment (go to ftc.gov). Nobody expects perfect credit from a renter, but a score above 580 or 600 is a plus,

    2. Know yourself: Do a background check through an online service like intelius.com.

    3. Line up your fan base. Prepare a list of references in advance, and get a letter from your last landlord that brags about what a wonderful tenant you were.

    4. Xerox stuff. Photocopy your driver’s license, Social Security card and work ID.

     5. First impressions count. When you meet with a building owner, dress nicely, be on time and bring all the information you’ve assembled. Owners want to know who you are and that they’re going to get paid. Provide them with these assurances, and you move to the front of the line.

    Five tips for renters

    For you, the application process is mainly about paperwork. You

    can gain an edge over others by doing yours ahead of time, says

    Luke Constantino, a real-estate agent with RE/MAX Professionals.

    1.

    Know your credit score. If you don’t have a recent credit report, get one before you start

    looking for an apartment (go to

    ftc.gov). “Nobody expects perfect credit from a renter, but a

    score above 580 or 600 is a plus,” Constantino says.

    2.

    Know yourself: Do a background check through an online service like intelius.com.

    3.

    Line up your fan base. Prepare a list of references in advance, and get a letter from your

    last landlord that brags about what a wonderful tenant you were.

    4.

    Xerox stuff. Photocopy your driver’s licence, Social Security card and work ID.

    5.

    First impressions count. When you meet with a building owner, dress nicely, be on time and

    bring all the information you’ve assembled. “Owners want to know who you are and that

    they’re going to get paid,” Constantino says. “Provide them with assurances, and you move to

    the front of the line.”
