I have experience with international tenants (although they weren't students). They were able to provide me with landlord references that I was able to verify and communicate with via email. They were also able to show me income statements to verify income. As a result of their strong references and income I didn't need a co-signer.
Hi @Julio Salado , how was your experience over the first year handling international students. Facing a similar situation now for the Fall 2016 and would love to learn more about your experience. I'm inquiring about semester by semester payments, proof of funds, and referrals to start.
