...when considering you as a renter? I don't have the worst credit, but we did have a bankruptcy 7 years ago and a few late payments here and there as of late. I have the money to pay first months rent and deposits that are necessary, pay my rent and am a VERY good tenant...just with not the best credit. What will they say when they look at my credit?Answer Question

That would depend on the person. We are renting a 3 bedroom house and we just declared bankruptcy last year. We had a hard time finding someone who would rent to us right after which meant we couldn't move with my husband when he switched his job from Chicago to Milwaukee (he did the 4 hour daily commute instead). But then he switched his job to Portland, OR and we're now living here. The only problem he had was the people insisted on a full month's rent for deposit up front instead of the $500 they had put in the add.
A lot of places required a co-signer for people with bad credit (which we don't have because all our family has just as bad, if not worse, credit than us).
