I’ve never included it for any rental application I’ve ever submitted, though I don’t live in South Florida (I think that’s what SF means). Though I’ve only had to give probably 4 applications for rental property. I’d say go without a statement…to me it just seems odd. Hope I helped =)

It can’t hurt. Some rental applications call for them. Here are some samples:

“The Collegian”::“PERSONAL STATEMENT
Please write a brief statement (1 paragraph to 1 page) describing why you wish to live at The Collegian. You may include descriptions of your
commitment to academic success, experiences that have taught you to be a good neighbor, and particulars about your lifestyle that are consistent with
The Collegian’s Code of Conduct.”

Some are as simple as this: “Please provide any additional information that might help management evaluate this application.” (with room for about a paragraph)
