Everyone needs a roof. Usually your best chances are renting from owners directly. Going via a management company will give you poor results. Look in craig's list or newspaper classifieds. Most important, be upfront with the landlord to not waste anyone's time. Being able to pay more than one months deposit will help you. Perhaps you can advertise on Craigs list, and see who wants to rent to you...that will be the easiest. Was this answer helpful? If so please click on the "green thumbs up" or the "best answer".
