First-time renter Frequently Asked Questions

How much is the deposit for a first time renter?

A deposit for an applicant that comes back with no rental history or as a first time renter will most likely have to pay a double deposit. So for a one bedroom $100 normal deposit, yours would be $200. However, not every first time renter property is the same, and they can charge you more or less depending on the circumstances.

What if I don't have good credit?

First time renter apartments that can not go off of rental history rely on other avenues of calculating risk, for instance: credit history and employment history. If you do not have either of these, it will be fairly difficult to be approved for an apartment without a co-signer.

Should I get a co-signer?

If you have decent credit (600 or above), then you should not require a co-signer. Co-signing will get you rental history, but it puts an unnecessary risk on someone you care about. We have properties that will work with most situations, so we should try to see what we can find before you explore that avenue.
