How to Make a Rental Resume

Creating a rental resume is a great way to help make a good first impression with landlords and help your application to rent a home stand out. You can use this template to organize information about you and your family. Once you create your resume, you can give it to landlords and property managers when you tour and apply to rent a home.

Rental Reference Tip:

A rental reference can be written by anyone who you have stayed with. They do not need to identify themselves as a friend or family member. Anyone can attest to the fact that you took care of the place you were staying, that you did not damage the place that you were staying, or that you did not leave owing money.
