1. Up front rent payment for several (3-6) months. Though it is risky for you if the owner default on his payments.
2. Higher security deposit. I recently did two such deals with 2 month's rent as security deposit upon signing lease with first month's rent due upon move in.
3. Stable employment.
4. Not too many defaults. May be one bankruptcy or some credit cards or one foreclosure instead of a long list of credit issues.
