Normally it goes like this:

850 - 780 excellent
780-750 great
750-720 good
680-720 ok
650-680 needs help
below 650 - need to work with a credit repair agency or read a few books about credit repair.

However credit is not the only factor when renting, so don't be discouraged. Things like credit can be overcome by offering to place 2 months of deposit and looking for a for rent by owner instead of an apartment complex.

In terms of the rental market, that score is workable. They will also look at criminal record, evictions, current income, etc....if your income is at least 3 times the rent and you don't have excessive items in collection or a recent foreclosure/repossession, you will probably be able to find something. Good luck.
