Definetely, credit history is important as well but showing a steady income that covers your rent and living expenses is what landlord will be looking at as well.
You may find a seller willing to work with you, provided that you also have employment
lined up here or steady income. Alot of landlords like to see that the tenant makes at least 3times the rent amount of income. You can find a Realtor to assist you with finding suitable townhomes.
Best with your relocation and short sale!
