Rentals are so competitive that you can buy a house for about 40 percent less per month than you can rent one.

It is unbelievable. If you find a place you like, you mut be ready to submit your application immediatly. They are already rented many times before they hit the market.

I work with clients every week who are moving into the area and they all are surprised at just how competitive the rental market is. If they see a house they like, they know they have to act on it quickly, especially if it is priced under $1300 per month.

When considering prospective tenants, property managers and landlords will review not only your current income but your credit history as well and criminal history if any. They want to make sure you are not only capable of paying rent but will pay the rent in line with your past payment history.
