Are you looking to be in a train town? Do you have other specifications? When we work with rental clients we don't usually recommend looking until a month to 3 weeks prior to the date you are looking to move. Rentals move fast and what's there today will not be there tomorrow...
Here are some of the requirements most landlords looking for:
1.Get an employment verification
2. Get your credit report (which any realtor should be able to get you free of charge)
3. Tenant pay 1-1.5 months security deposit
4. Tenant pay 1 month of rent
5. usually tenant pays the realtor fees in the sum of 1 month rent.
If you like our team's assistance, we would love to chat further on the phone. We service Essex, Morris and Union counties (all the towns from Montclair to Westfield).
