Not fair
« on: October 28, 2018, 08:12:45 am »
I don't think it is fair that most rental properties want you to make three times the rent amount to qualify for a place.I pay all my bills on time every month, year after year and I can't move into a new place because I don't make three times the amount of the rent. I don't know what to do.

I haven't rented in a long time - can you have them check your credit rating as an alternative to making three times the rent. That will show you pay your bills.

With the prices of rent these days who makes that kind of money per month? I know i don't. They expect too much!

They may change that if no one qualifies. In San Francisco a 2bd apartment is 5000.00 a month.  I cant imagine  pay8ng that but people do.  So what yo7 have to make 15,000 a month some probably  do.

I lived in my house for seems forever. I got a job, and found this cutest small apartment walking distance to where I wanted to be. I thought would be a really good move me in a different spot for one or two years, management wanted salary 2x the rent but with down/cleaning deposit caused me to  :( and I tried to explain that I would be able to pay their rent  :monkey:

Last time I rented a house it took first and last plus a security deposit and that was sixty years ago, so not much has changed. Of course it's always easy to blame someone else instead of figuring out how to save enough to buy your own place, like other people have been doing all along.

I know its crazy, When I rented my first apartment, the rent was $300.00 now thats unheard of. The rent is more like $900-1300 for what I once spent $300 on

I think people who own places like that should change that, most people can't afford that much to move into an apartment, then you may not get that deposit back when you leave. I would keep looking, and don't settle.

    I know what you can do to avoid this annoying problem:
    Do not do business with them! Because it is simply: Not fair!
