Hi Dianne,
The answer would most likely be yes. But most Associations would deny you. You would have to find a home with no required association approvals where the landlord would be comfortable with you leaving extra security deposit. Possibly an association per request of the owner might consider it if they have a higher vacancy rate and are more anxious to fill vacant units. You are not the only one who has faced hardship and still need a place to call home in this economy, let me add the higher end communities will be stiffer on rules. I hope this helps and lt me know if i can assist you.

Dear Dianne,
Yes, it's possible. Depending on your credit score, the owner may require additional money down.

Sincerely yours,

Yes you can with enough of a security deposit. Have you ever been evicted?

Landlords are more concerned with your rental and home purchase history and if you've paid rent on time, have outstanding balances, etc. Having been laid off is unfortunately more common these days with the economic climate being what it is. If you'd like help finding a nice rental here in Delray Beach, please contact me.

I have found in certain situations where the tenant does not have great credit, if they offer to put more then 1st, last and security down, the landlord may be fine with renting.

I have an investor that has available home in Boynton Beach just North of Delray and he would consider a tenant with any credit. Call me at 561-246-1159 so we can discuss your options.
