Please Help!!! I'm living in an extended stay hotel but I desperately want to move into a home/apt. The problem is I have been evicted in the past, my financial situation is much better and I will definitely be able to afford the rent. The problem is when landlords here eviction they don't want to hear anything else. What I need is some in the Palm Beach Gardens area who is willing to rent to someone who has been evicted in the past.

I've got nothing - but best of luck.
With everyone moving down here from the NE.. you are in a very tough position.
What is your budget and where is your job?

Have you just tried apartment complexes like AMLI@Ibis on Northlake? (I used to live there) It is within you price range, a nice place and they are a company with units all over the country and lawyers so may be less "worried" about things unlike a single home owner/landlord trying desperately to protect themselves from a potentially bad situation...

as a landlord of multiple units I would have concerns about someone with your past history but I would consider them. Here is what would make someone want to rent to you. Normally it is required 1st months rent, last months rent plus 1 month security deposit. So total of 3 months rent. You may have to offer someone to pay last 2 months in advance bringing your total to 4 months rent. be upfront with landlord, tell them your past history and let them know things are better for you now financially and you are willing to put up las2 months rent as a show of good faith. The landlord is now offered protection from any future eviction where they will not lose money should you default

Have you checked out roommates.com or any other roommate websites?

@BVG_Steve I have thought of doing that. I just wasn't sure it would make a difference. Thanks for the advice.

@cfbs2691... No, I haven't checked out roommates.com. I have kids so I can't do the roommate thing.
