I am sorry for your situation but you are setting yourself up for a disaster. I think you might be better off renting a room. They only require one to two weeks of rent as a deposit.

with the odds of even good tenants turning bad because of illness,job loss or divorce the thought of taking on a tenant with no money is crazy.
to knowingly take a tenant who cant come up with a months security,last months rent and first months rent should be out of the question if your a landlord who knows what you are are doing.

while I am usually for the tenant, this is really true.
any LL that would rent an apartment to a tenant that cant even make the first month and security is already setting both of then up for problems.


It would be like a bank giving a mortgage loan to 500K of a couple making min wage........

never get a payday loan unless you have terrible credit and it is the absolute last resort as most of the time they will charge you over 100% apr.

suggestions for you:

1. if you have decent credit, get a cash advance on your credit card.
2. if you are popular throw a rent party at your old place
3. sell some of your stuff (jewlery, cell phone, tv, computer, furniture, etc.)

What, the commission? Well you could try selling it yourself but you'd probably make less on the painting if you did that.

in this day and age i wont try selling anything myself anymore. i had a set of snow tires on craigs list from my bmw. every day there were scam after scam e-mails.

today you have to think about everyone you meet as a potential crook when your selling something privately. i finally hooked up with someone who bought them but we were both very leary of each other before we met.
