-- 5 Tips to beat the masses and secure your next home --
1. Arrive early.
2. Dress up, bring your smile, and your best attitude.
3. Be proactive - Help the landlord do their job and bring a 'rental resume'. This can be a blurb and photo about each person applying as well as referees.
4. Be memorable - have a chat and leave an impression but remember, too many questions can set off alarm bells.
5. Be honest - Landlords are experienced at reading between the lines, so there’s absolutely no point in lying about anything. That includes pets, potential housemates or your employment status.
Good luck and happy hunting!!
