Go get yourself a good rental agent. Call up about two or three different rental agents and go with the one you mesh best with. Best of luck!

Hi Shundra,

If you're not working with a rental agent, find one. They can be very helpful & usually at no charge/cost to you. You can also try Craigslist or go to my website below.

You will more than likely need to pay the landlord for a credit check, even if you have one of your own. But it doesn't hurt for you to get one online is one website you can use. They charge $1 upfront but you can cancel as soon as you receive your report.

They usually will also require a letter of recommendation or verification from your previous landlord & verification of employment..

Good luck!

In the event you have had some negative marks associated with your credit... It is very likely it will be brought up by the owner/manager of a property you are interested in renting. How you prepare and document your response can greatly impact their decision. It is important to discuss your credit issues upfront with your agent in order for them to provide your best course of action.

Depending on where you are looking to rent your new home, you might find few options. The home rental market in some neighborhoods is kind of tight since inventory is low. But there are certainly homes out there. There are many ways to find them including doing the leg work yourself, working with an apartment or rental company, or working with a realtor. The cost involved with this is usually covered by the landlord. Good luck with your search and let us know if you need additional advice.

There are many properties for rent. Important to let your agent know if you have pets upfront and what your credit score is. If you dont know trhere are free / low cost credit report services available online.

Also let agent know what else is important: schools, size, near transportation, etc
