So if it is a place you really want to live - keep upping the pre paid months until they say OK
I could do that. I will keep this in mind. Thank you!

It seems so odd to me that some place would say they don't rent to people who don't have jobs. Retired people rent all the time.
I have not worked for almost 6 years
now and have signed three different leases showing assets and it has never been a issue.

I did pretty much all of the above from this thread. - Copies of bank and brokerage statements (accounts whited out), past paystubs, put semi-retired/sabbatical (true) and I offered to pay 6 months up front for a 6 month lease (They wanted a year lease) and I got it.

Thank you all!

Most retirees have an income source of some sort, whether SS or a pension or RMDs or something like that. As an ER, I've had similar issues due to lack of organized income stream, although mine was trying to refinance. If you've been able to sign leases without an income stream, you've been lucky. I think a lot has to do with whether you are working with a small co./individual. Large companies and banks are only interested in filling in the blanks, not trying to accommodate.
