Your bigger problem will be finding a decent place for $600 for a 2 or 3 bedroom.

Craigslist is probably the best place for you to look.

If you've been paying consistently on time for the past five years, you should be able to find an understanding landlord. To me as a landlord, that (and your employment) would be more important than a credit score.

Definitely! I don't know much about rentals in Cary, but in Durham, for that price, you're going to be in a rough neighborhood if it's a house. You may do a little better for that money in a well run complex, but that'll probably be the place that runs the credit check.

If I were you, I'd call some places and ask about the weight they give to the credit check before submitting your application and fee. I've had one company tell me that due to the current economy, they don't place as much weight on the credit check as they used to.

A property manager who has to answer to a landlord will be much more negative, I think.
You are probably going to need to find a landlord who handles their own rentals.

You may find something in Cary at $600, but that will be difficult. 3 bedrooms will be extremely difficult.
Be VERY VERY careful on Craigslist. There are many scammers. Do not rent a unit from someone you cannot meet there. Do NOT wire money.
And, be suspicious if you think the rent is "too good to be true." It may not be true.

You can find a respectable 2 bedroom in a working class area for $600 if you look. If you're more of a suburban type, look for a North Raleigh or Cary apartment complex. If you prefer more a urban area, look for rentals near downtown Raleigh.

The rent will be your biggest problem.
You need to looking more around $700 for a 2-bed and $800 for a 3 bed.
You should find these without too much trouble.

Many apartments are screaming out for tenants and have relaxed their residency criteria to help with filling apartments.
This creates its own problems but it may help you out.
