Good Morning and thank you for expressing an all too common frustration. It is a shame to throw away 1300/mth to increase a landlords equity rather than your own. I have a lender that you may be interested in speaking to as he can help you determine exactly where you are and what you need to do to improve your scores. Please call me when you have a moment to discuss in detail.
Post on craiglist to find a rental agent.... not many Realtors do rentals since there is no co-op for rentals. Call each real estate office and property management company to inquire.... good luck!... more
