I have bad credit should i still apply?

Usually yes you should apply. We approve tenants based on if we think they can and will pay rent faithfully and on time as well as take care of the home.

You are more than a score and many people with lower scores pay their rent and take care of the homes they live in.

If we see bad credit we are normally also looking at other factors like previous landlord referral, employment verification, income verification, criminal background check, eviction history, in person inspection of your current residence and other factors.

We may also look at your ability to offset potential risk that comes with your financial profile with pledge of additional security assets, additional cosigners or prepayments of rent.
