Wetdawgs is right; I would offer extra security deposit.  I would also be the first to offer rather than wait for them to ask.  Be upfront about your situation. Most private landlords are easier to deal with rather that the protocol a management company may have.

With bad credit and an eviction on your record, it is possible that you will have to work harder to prove that you are financially able to rent.    sometimes an extra two or three months rent deposited in an escrow account will help your case.

Hi Brittney,
It depends what the rest of your credit looks like. If everything else is good and you show income it might still work for you.
