Hi Patsy,

yes you just need to show your bank statement and your old job history. The goal is to show landlord that you can afford to be job hunting and cover your rent for 3 months, etc.

Please let me know if you need any help.

I have job here in my state still for the pass 8 years. I'm not going to let it go to drive back and forth to Dallas each day working there. Possiblity I will have a job in Dallas before I move back there. I am in the process of securing one through the Dallas County.

Due to very high demand for rentals right now I think it would be best for you to find work first, then move. Most landlords will want to see your offer letter or pay stubs in order to rent. We work with lots of tenants and owners, and while there are exceptions, in this market it is very tough to rent if you do not have current income. You're just up against a lot of competition who may already be employed.

I personally would not want you to waste applications fees and time looking for a place only to be turned down.

LA is not that far away.....make a couple of trips, lock down some type of job, even if it is not your final destination first, then move is my advice.

Thanks everyone for your quick reply's! I didn't expect to even get a reply back. I'm so excited that you all are willing to help. I plan on starting to relocate the first of week of May and complete the relocating (moving process) by the 2nd week of June. I live in Shreveport but was born and raised in Dallas. There's no good job opportunity here for me in my degree (BS in Business Management) so I am working on my Masters in Elementary Education. I do plan on teaching in Texas. In the meantime I have been looking into other jobs using my BS degree. I would like for this to be a smooth transition move for myself and my daughters (20,19,&16). Rightnow I am looking for something cheap until I get my job - then after that something much bigger that I can rent to own! I will be contacting one of you and I thank all of you for everything.
