Other things to consider are employment, income, job stability, and debt. If you can make the case that you are responsible tenants you can get past the credit issue. It is also a good idea to have references. Past landlords that can vouch for you are priceless.
As a Realtor, I can help find you a rental, that is of course, if you are still looking. If you have any real estate needs in the future, whether it be renting or buying please give me a call. Thanks, I hope that helped.
