I've found neighborhoods I like, and since my fiancee will be able to get a job really quickly, paying monthly won't be a big issue. The problem is getting in the door. Is it possible to take out a loan to make it from move in date (a few days before orientation) to when loans get disbursed? Also, has anyone heard of Insurent, the institutional guarantor?
I used Insurent. The guy kind of treated me like I was a moron, but otherwise they were good. Expensive, but for me unavoidable, and they were super on the ball with getting in contact with my building and making sure I had everything I needed. I kind of want to die thinking about the amount of money I paid them that will now go to waste since I'm having to break my NY lease, but I wouldn't have regretted it had I stayed. I don't know anyone in the tri-state area that could be my guarantor so I didn't have a choice.
