House just sold, questions about renting

Our house in Florida sold within hours of us putting it on the market. Actually, it never went on the market. We met with a realtor, signed an agreement for her to sell, she sent her guy over to take pictures, and an hour later she called with a full-price offer.

I was concerned at first that we were set up, but the offer is in line with what other properties in our development are currently going for. And it’s a cash offer from a company who doesn’t even need to do a showing. I was concerned that the Realtor kind of set us up, and also if we are going to be paying her a 10% commission for essentially making a phone call. But that’s beside the point.

My problem now is finding somewhere to live. We have to be out by the first week of August, so we don’t have time to find a home to buy. So we are going to rent one instead. We found a nice house online, and contacted them about getting it.

Now, here’s the wrinkle – our current household income is probably not sufficient to get approved to rent the place we want. So we would like to offer to pay for a full year up front in cash. My thoughts were that no landlord would turn that down regardless of monthly income. But all we have been told by the rental people is to fill out an application.

We do have regular income of about $2,700/month, and that will increase once we get up there and I can find a job. And we don’t have a lot of time to figure this out.

So my question is – am I being delusional thinking that a landlord will go for this?
