Rental homes are available in Pleasantville, or purchasing a home may work for you as well. Finding out if you can purchase a home may be to your long term advantange, though. Not only will you receive the tax credit of $8000 if you purchase a home by Dec. 09, but you will receive a tax deduction each and every year you own the home. It makes sense...but, even if you do decide on a rental property, keep in mind that landlords also require credit and background checks. Alot of people don't think they can buy a home because they don't have very good credit (under 650)...but they also are surprised to find out that credit scores also affect your ability to rent a home as well. The best place to start is by talking to a good mortgage company to find out where your credit is, income level, and then best determine if you will rent or purchase.
I am always happy to assist, and am only a phone call away.
