Skish, Other/Just Looking in 34233

Any apartments in south Sarasota that are not overly dependent on a credit check?

Asked by Skish, 34233 Tue Oct 15, 2013

I have a friend who is recently separated, and is currently staying with his parents. The parents are moving out of the country in a few weeks. His problem is that his credit is not that great, but he has solid employment. Anybody have any ideas on a place that might rent to him without overly relying on the credit check issue?

It is pretty common that a credit check is performed for new tenants but many communities will consider solid employment in their decision. A letter from an employer may be helpful. If I can assist in any way in his search please text, email or call me. My contact info is below.

A referral fee..usually very small. That is why I referred you to a management company direct.

I understand how Realtors are paid in a home purchasing situation, but how do they get paid in a rental situation?

No, they pretty much all check credit history. Sometimes a rentaly by owner may not check. Here are some rental sites to try.

Craigslist -
Vacation Rentals by Owner -
Ebay Classifieds –
Florida Rental Ads –
Real Rentals – –
Rent Range –
Sarasota Herald Tribune -
Sun Herald –
