I have a question for ya, why is it so hard to find a rental place in this town. Everyone wants refrences. Well, I don’t have any, I’ve lived with my parents for 21 years. No one seems to call back. And if they do, it’s either nothing is available, or there’s a waiting list.
I have to get out QUICK!
I think if I talk to another machine, I may just have a mental breakdown.
I’ll tell you why landlords want references - because they’ve been burned by bastard renters who didn’t pay the rent and then left all kinds of crap - literally - when the landlord finally manages to get rid of them four months later. Then the renters go on to the next place, and then on to the next, paying about one month’s rent out of five, because there are so many places to rent in this town and landlords are maybe a teeny bit desperate to have anyone in there at all.
That sucks Jesus. There apparently is places available, but they either don’t call back, or they have a waiting list or some deal. Or they’re hideous like the place I viewed yesterday. Budget is tight as well, and I don’t want to live somewhere disgusting.
I understand the whole references thing. I really do. But how are you supposed to aquire references if you can’t get a place without references? It’s kind of humorous once you think about it.
I wish people were trustworthy, all people. Then I wouldn’t have this problem.
You dress well talk politely and kindly inform them that you are a first time renter. Hopefully you dont come across as a slob/partier. In your age range good luck. You could of course always lie and provide fake references
