I was trying to rent a duplex with some roommates. Rent was $1400 and all of us combined made about $6000 a month. We were the very first applicants because we were able to apply through some help of a realtor we know. Two weeks later our friend tells us the landlord has chosen someone over us only because they make more. We were easily able to afford the rent with no issues (clean backgrounds and 700+ credits) I don’t see how it’s fair to pick someone only because they make more. We were going to pay the $1400 without an issues. Is this even allowed? We were definitely the first to apply because we were told, but were picked due to lower income despite making enough for rent. I’m just really confused on how thats okay. Thank you.
