Hi - I'm contemplating a move to Philadelphia in spring 2014. In the past 2 years I was out of work for a year. It's an old story, I know I'm not alone. I have worked hard to get past it and have had to file for bankruptcy. Do you see me running into roadblocks getting a lease in Philly? What can I expect? I'm currently considering a 1 br apartment or condo in Center City or a row house in University city. Budget is about $1000-1200 mo.
Thanks in advance for your thoughtful replies!

I have no idea what you might run into, but if you need a guarantor and don't want to ask parents or friends, Insurent might be a good option. See this NYC thread: //www.city-data.com/forum/new-y...d-company.html. I don't know if they work with people outside the NYC area, but if they do, it looks like they'd be good to deal with. It's likely, too, that there are other companies that offer the same service.
