My partner and I are looking to find a rental property in a new area. We both have good rental history and stable employment however we understand that the market is very flooded and competitive.
I’m curious to know if any of these options are considered ‘normal’ and would give us a better chance at getting picked for the rental? Or just appear to be a tosser.
A. Pay extra bond, like double?
B. Offer to pay 6/12 months upfront?
C. Offer to pay extra per week $10, $20 etc
Just curious to hear what you say. Otherwise, any tips.
