As a property manager, providing us with the most security you can as far as information about your job searches, prepayment ability, and any potential for a co-signor is paramount . The rental market is incredibly active here, and the supply is low. You want to make yourself as marketable as you can. We can help.

Let us know if we can be of assistance to you.

1) Have a high quality 'co-signor' lined up.
2) Offer to prepay multiple months rent to reduce risk to the landlord.
3) Have a very well constructed letter explaining your circumstances, reasons for moving, verifiable job interview status, etc.

Essentially, make it easy for them to feel comfortable with you vs. someone else.
