Make A Better Impression On Landlords With A Rental Resume

Apartment hunting, while exciting, is always a nerve-racking experience. Dealing with prospective landlords is by far the worst part of it all, because you have to prove something to them (and nobody likes being in that position). The folks over at Offbeat Home came up with a simple idea that can help simplify this process: Bring a rental resume.The resume doesn’t have to be long, or even have much on it at all. It’s simple; landlords want to know that you’ve rented before, and that you’ve paid your rent (and stayed for as long as you promised you would). Handing them a resume with all your previous addresses and landlords’ contact information is a quick way to squash any pre-judgement that may have happened when you walked in the door wearing a T-shirt with the Ramones on it.
