Yes, you do have to have very good credit. But if your credit is just shy of being
good, you can offer to pay two month's security instead of the one month and that
sometimes shows the landlord you are serious.
This way if you fall behind they have two month's security instead of one.
Another way is to get someone to say if you don't pay the rent, they will pay it, like
a guarantor. It is tough, especially in today's climate.
