Good Morning,

In order for you to avoid application fees, which still may be hard you will have to go through an owner that is renting their home. Any Management company will charge between $35-50 a person/couple. The only thing you may still have to pay for is a credit report.

Also expect a security deposit and possibly even a months rent cost up front and pet fees, if you have any.

Good Luck and be careful with Craig's List. They have a lot of scams so meet the owner first at the home. Do not send any money to anyone by mail!

Have a Good day!

You will have to search papers and find a private landlord. Most rental listing on MLS will require an applicaiton fee. This includes a credit report to protect owners and insure that rent will be paid. Good luck!

Your best bet is a rental by owner. There are several web sites for these locally and nationally. The other option is Craig's List. Just be very careful about scams since you are not going through a company for your search. Most compaines will require an application fee which usually includes the fee to run the credit report. If you have any other questions please feel free to contact me.
