Tips for Prospective Renters
Given how competitive it is to find housing in the area, you can make your housing application more attractive to prospective landlords and property managers by doing the following:

- Be ready to jump on a rental offer quickly before someone else says yes to a lease.
- Provide a resume to show history of employment
