I would be glad to show you any house for rent in Clayton, NC. You can contact me at (919) 799-0429 or e-mail me at 919Realtor@gmail.com. You can also visit my website at http://www.jayme.fathomraleigh.com, where you can get free access to all homes for sale and rent that are listed in the MLS!
When dealing with most rental companies, they have an approval system. They don't always look at credit being a deciding factor and focus more on payments and history.
If you need more information before viewing tons of homes, I'll be glad to help.
My email and phone are firstname.lastname@example.org and (919) 628-9936.
Good luck with the hunt and I wish you well :)
