There are several alternatives to renting with a low credit score. One option is to look for no credit check apartments.
Another option is to find an accommodating property manager who is willing to look past a poor credit score.
It is also important to be honest about your credit history and to offer to pay more upfront or find a co-signer.
Additionally, having a roommate who can make up for your lower score can be another alternative option.
Finding a cosigner on your rental application can give your landlord confidence that you won't miss any payments.
Landlords generally look for a credit score of 650 or above before they approve a rental application.
Building your credit score and history can also help strengthen your position as a prospective tenant.
Consider what would makes you less of a risk than it would seem from the credit score. Use this in your application.
Many landlords won't discount a tenant solely because of their credit check so show you are responsible with money.
