And absolutely DO NOT send a deposit…have you even seen the property? Did you go by? Is there a sign for sale? And did you call the agent who has it listed for sale? Too many scammers out there. This is a huge problem, especially if you complete an official-looking application form with personal information that may be considered sensitive and used to scam you further.... more
Hi Jackie, when it comes to renting it will depend on the owner of the property and weather they have a property manager or do it themselves. I would advise you to tell them when you apply that your credit may be low and see what they say. ... Dawn... more

Craigslist is a great place to start. Rents have gone up, so you might have to settle for a room in a house or even a studio for the area your looking for. You need to prove you have steady income or reserve funds, have fair credit where it shows you're making payments. If you lack good credit you need to provide explanations on why you paid late or show reserve funds. You want to play it right and not keep burning through $25-50 for every credit check and not get the place. You'll be competing for other tenants who want that place. In my opinion a strong applicant is someone who makes 3x the rent in income.

Hi, realtors are prohibited by respa laws from steering anyone to or from any given area. But, if you want to find out the crime rate in an area you shoukd call the local police dept. to ask them. They are on the front lines so to speak and will give you a clear picture. If schools are a factor you shoukd think about fremont because as well as ha b ing a lower crime rate we have great schools. You can also check great schools.com for school scores and crime reports . com for some crime statistics.. Dawn... more
Where did you see the ad for this house? Was it on-line? Was it Trulia.com or Craigslist or what? There are many, many rental scams on the internet. The chief sign of a scam is a posted rent that is just plain too low for the property. In fact, that is what draws in the victims. They send money, provide personal data and expect to get a very sweet deal in return. All they are really buying in many cases is a foolish story from the “landlord” and a bitter experience of loss.... more
If you find listings like the one you posted, and it sounds too good to be true --- it is!
By all means, DON'T respond to the person who posted this listing. Don't provide your personal information. Even better, flag this listing as a possible scam.
Your best bet is to contact property management companies serving this area, and ask a rental agent to assist you.
Google property management companies in this area, and find at least a couple you can interview.
Be careful out there!... more
Honestly, how would anyone here really be able to answer that question? You don't tell us where it is, what it has and we have and can not see it, so really how could we answer you? Contact a Realtor in your area and have them come look at it and give you an answer.... more
Below is the link for the Trulia.com offering that house for rent for $800. This is a fraudulent ad designed to scam gullible renters who pursue a rental house which is clearly being offered for far less than it should be if it was really for rent.
Contact Trulia.com at firstname.lastname@example.org and tell them of the problem and supply the link.... more
