Renters’ resumes. Pet references. Head shots? Acing your rental application isn’t easy. L.A. has the highest share of people renting of the 20 largest U.S. metropolitan areas. No wonder it’s so hard to find a place. 

That’s why we’re looking to you for advice. We want to hear from people who have been there, done that. What did you do to score a place? What tips do you have for newbies? What ridiculous stories have you acquired along the way? 

Share your pro tips with us on social media using the hashtag #rentrace.
