That's wonderful that you've got a great job at an early age! Are you trying to make an apartment purchase? With no established credit, that would be difficult, if not impossible. If just renting, though, it's a different story for sure. One quick way to start building your credit to make a home purchase in the future would be to get a credit card and begin using it regularly making sure to pay off the balance monthly. And of course, stay up to date on car payments and all other bills. If you're just attempting to rent, you may need to go and speak with the landlord in person. It might be helpful to have some personal references typed up to give them, plus be prepared for at least a month or two deposit. Best of luck on your endeavor!
