I want to meet the tenants, and talk to them for a while and let intuition help me decide. I prefer to collect first month, last month and security deposit up front and that has always been enough to cover whatever comes up.

There are other ways to convince a landlord to go with you as well. Can you pay 6months or even the full year's rent up front? Extra large security deposit? Also, are you looking on the Facebook rental pages as well as Apartments.com, Zumper and all of the other sites of that ilk? Is there a reason you'd want an apartment vs a house (where you're more likely to be dealing with an individual owner)?

What are these Facebook pages ? I would rather rent a house but there is so much competition.

    Blogs Are For Journaling Only

    If you need to interact with another C-D member, then please use the Direct Message or Visitor Message functions to reach your party way more directly. It beats wasting a blog post. Otherwise, you'd have been better off by simply responding on the main forum pages.

    These lesser-populated blog pages are for journaling only. Thanks.
