renting an apartment
first, i am new to this forum and my name is joerg.
Well, this sounds alittle stupid, but how do you rent an apartment in the states ( i came 5 years ago from germany).
To this date i live with my wife at her grandma home, but we really want to move out.
But, thats not all. Currently we live in L.A.,CA (to expensive) so i thought to moving to North Carolina (where a friend lives).
I know you should have good credit (whats good?), but how you actually rent an apartment from L.A.
I just do not want to make any stupid mistakes, if possible.
If you have some tips for me, i really appreciate it.
