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.

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.
