Insurent, a service that serves as a guarantor for renters who fall below those ridiculous 40x - 50x income requirements, is a godsend for many. For a small monthly fee, it'll foot the responsibility for a defaulted rent, allowing you to rent that apartment you've always wanted without having to ask your entire family and then some to match you as a guarantor. Furthermore, it'll support you even if you have no credit, helping you to meet those pesky requirements without hassle.
But you're still wondering: if I use Insurent, what apartments will possibly take me? As it turns out, hundreds upon hundreds upon hundreds. A full list of Insurent accepted apartments is shown here, as listed by AddressReport. But for the purposes of this article, we're going to bring you the best of the best.
