The owners of the rental will in most instances ask for a prospective tenant to complete an application and provide a credit report. Most applications will ask for your current employment or other source of income that will be used to pay the rent. If you have no income, it might be difficult for the owner to understand how you are going to pay the rent. You will want to be honest and up front with not only your Realtor. Each owner may have different requirements. I think you will need to work with your Realtor who can present your case to the other agent or owner and see if they will be willing to take achance with you. Any help you need, just call.

If you can show that you will be able to make the rent, that is the first step. It would help to hire a Realtor in this situation as you would have representation. We can also provide you with the broadest view of what is available.
If you wanted to come to the office, we could discuss your options and see what the best course of action would be once we clarify specifics.
