I can't take this anymore. I'm sick of living in these weekly dump places and it's not because I don't have money for a proper 1 bedroom place, but every single apartment I contact, they want paystubs or proof of income etc. I tell them I have the money and if I can just show them the bank statements with 3x the rent and maybe pay a couple of months upfront. They agree bank statements can work, but I would need to pay the whole 12 month lease upfront. If I want a 3 or 6 month lease, they shoot up the price so it's not even the same price anymore. Of course I can pay it all upfront, but that is completely unfair for me to do so and there should be some meeting of the minds between both parties. Sometimes I even tell them I play cards for a living, but that's the last resort as I realize the societal stereotype behind 'gambling' and it being portrayed as 'unsafe'.

These corporate places are completely droned out. I just can't take it anymore. How is someone with a 'job' that can possibly get fired within the next month or so who has NO MONEY in the bank a 'safer' tenant to lease to than someone who HAS money in the bank for any type of lease, no debt, car paid off, no evictions, 1 year of perfect rental history and never missing a rental payment, but just because I don't have some formal based job and a paystub, they won't lease to me? This makes absolutely no sense. The people I see in these offices getting approved for a lease and me getting shown the door is completely laughable. I bet none of them have more than $500 in their bank account, have loads of debt, and work at Wal Mart for a living, but yet they are treated like rockstars and I'm shown the door time and time again. I have even thought of going the roommate route, but I rather not anymore. Even condos on a non-corporate scale send me walking.

Just goes to show you how droned out society is once again and how right I have been all this time about this world. There really is no hope for this generation or future generations. Just a matter of time until everything collapses.

No tax records? It sounds like your credit history isn't up to snuff. There are companies who will act as a cosigner for you. It's not cheap but a year or two with them should build your credit enough for your next place. Hopefully, you'll pay cash for a house in a few years.
It's what you do and not what you say If you're not part of the future then get out of the way

The first two paragraphs are good and relatable. The 3rd is forgettable.
I do not think I could name a more flexible city in the USA when it comes to renting a place to live in. The monthly/yearly influx and exodus of people into Nevada (really just Clark County) makes this possible.

If you were running your counting business like any other business, you would have a pay stub. Even if you are not, get on the computer and make some pay stubs. It's not that hard.

My credit is fine, i never owed anyone A DIME my whole life. I pay everything in full upfront, regardless of what it is. I don't believe in payments, mortgages, interest payments, none of that garbage that all it does is suck you into a web of being a slave debtor to the system. You should know from my posting history, I dont believe in loans or buying things IF I don't have the money for it. I never had a credit card either. This isn't about credit. They are sending me walking for not having a job so either I pay the whole lease upfront, which I'll never do, or get shown the door.

I guess I could get some delivery job for 2 weeks to get my foot in the door and then quit the job after I've been approved.

I don't know how long I plan to be here, but being in my late 20s, im starting to look at a more 'comfortable' and legitimate place to live in. It sure would be nice to have a somewhat respectable place to come home to.

Something about this isn't right. I have
a buddy who owns two apartment
buildings. He could care less is you
have a job. What he wants to see
first and foremost is a good credit
rating. This is what we run on now.
And second, he wants references
from where you were living last so
he can call them and find out what
kind of a tenant you are. Third, he
wants first and last months rent and
a security deposit.

If you have good credit, your last landlord
will say you paid on time every month,
and you have the cash to move in, it's
a done deal. A job has nothing to do
with any of it.

This is all most rental places want.
Something is wrong about ZK's
rant, he bitching about the wrong
things. Odd..

Why not just rent out a room in a large house or rent a house rather than dealing with the apartments?
