Help the community by answering this question:


You can go two ways.
1. Contact a property management company in Whittier.
2. Contact a REALTOR® and list it as a lease on the MLS.

Hope this helps,

Hi "18791879", two answers to your question:

1) If you are just looking to move and NOT buy another home you can surely just move and just rent your home.

2) If you are looking to move, rent, and then buy you should seek the advice of a local Mortgage Broker to determine what is possible as far as a loan Pre-Approval, not a Pre-Qualification. You can read more about the difference here: I would highly recommend finding someone with a Certified Mortgage Planning Specialist designation. You can search for one in your area here:

You MAY be able to use some of the rental income in qualifying for your Pre-Approval; however, this depends on how much equity you have in your current home.

Best, Steve

Sure you can
As long as you qualify. Need to show that you can afford to make another mortgage payment. Lender will look at it as future income not rental income just yet.

You can do this as long as you make enough money to be able to do this. If you could explain you situation in more detail of what you are exactly trying to do i can give you some much better answers.
