You're going to view a rental property in person. How can you prepare? Make sure you dress appropriately to show that you care about your appearance, that you are a professional and responsible person. While I'm not saying - wear formal attire like a tux, you need to make sure you're not wearing ragged jeans, flip flops, or a top that lets it all hang out when you meet your potential new landlord. A ratty old T-shirt or cut-off shorts just will not do. Treat this meeting as if you were going to meet a new employer for the first time. Consider wearing – a suit, new jeans, slacks, a nice dress, a dress shirt, nice shoes, however, if you must wear tennis shoes – make sure they are clean with no holes. Also, do not go reeking of cigarettes. Fe-breeze your clothes prior to dressing, use breath mints, chewing gum, etc. – to eliminate any cigarette smell prior to meeting the landlord. Even if the landlord allows smoking, most prefer to rent to non-smokers first, as they will have less damage to their rental unit to fix later on. Don't go overboard on make-up, perfume or aftershave either, those can be a big turn off in any situation. You want to appeal to the landlord, not offend them.
