Tips for Renting a Home in Wellington Florida

  • Be honest
  • Start your rental search 30-45 days prior to your move date. Most properties listed in the MLS are looking for immediate occupancy or within 30 days.
  • Write a letter to your prospective landlord telling them about yourself. If you have bad credit explain why you have bad credit.
  • If you have a pet include them in your letter and provide pictures. If they’ve done any obedience training include that documentation as well.
  • Try to see new rental listings the day they are listed.
