Good Evening Brittany,
1st thing to see if the L/L will accept a lower negotiated price on a rental is Location Location Location!
2nd thing to review..... is the Amount Days the listing has been on the market... the longer on the market...... the better chance on getting a lower Price...
3-PROVIDING your Credit score and Collection history along with criminal back-round and eviction back-round check is acceptable. Hope this helps you?
