@Rachel C. , why disqualify her? If she has passes your screening, offer her the lease at the higher rate. You don't have to justify your price.
It's not like you offered the place to her already and then tried to up the rent.
Thanks for your advice. I will get back on the research train and figure out if she really does qualify. I did already have the listing set for a lower amount...so does that count for having already offered her the rental at a lower price? I haven’t re-listed yet...trying to decide if it’s a smart move to increase the rental amount or not.
