‘jacksonville houses for rent with bad credit’
Jacksonville FL has had a recent population boom, causing it to surpass even the city of Miami. Its 1.3 million people now boast one of the most diverse in the state. There is also a great demand for apartments and town homes. If you are looking to rent an apartment in Jacksonville, there are a few things you need to know. If you have bad credit or a prior broken lease, there is a high chance of being denied approval by Jacksonville apartments.
But this doesn’t mean that every single apartment follows these credit guidelines. Some are private apartments and others are more lenient but you have to know where they are. Here are a few locales in Jacksonville where one can rent an “second chance” apartment:
- North Jackson
- Southeast Jacksonville
- West Jacksonville
Again, the list is not exhaustive as there are many units that do not neccessarily abide by the same criteria for renting as the others. As we mentioned earlier, there are many other areas where these types of apartments may exist. Locating and narrowing down to these apartments is not easy but it is possible if one has the right knowledge of how and where to look.
Some people are of the persuasion that these types of apartments, usually referred to as “second chance apartments”, are located in seedy parts of the city. This may or may not be true. There are excellent, well-maintained and elegant apartments in safe neighborhoods which will be willing to approve a tenant who has prior rental issues.
One way of looking is to use the Internet. This is by far the most convenient way to search because one need not waste time and fuel driving around town. One challenge with second chance Jacksonville apartments is that they do not usually advertize meaning that sometimes one cannot easily unearth these complexes. The apartments themselves also want to remain anonymous because they do not want to attract the “wrong kind” of tenants which may result in the decline of rental prices. Usually some apartments will approve a felony but only if it is old enough, usually 7 years or more.
