They are correct about the co-signer, however the amount is incorrect. It varies based on the landlord. However, if you are able to produce both proof of you current bank records as well as find someone with good credit and makes over at least $60K, you can certainly find a place!
Best of luck, if you need more advice, please feel free to contact me.
