Every landlord looks at credit reports differently some have strict requirements and some understand that certain situations happen in peoples lifes. My best advice to you is when you apply write a letter explaning the circumstances of the discrepancy on your credit report. This will show good faith and your willingness to explain and that your acknowledging the issue. Turn this letter in with your application.
I would suggest you try all the usual outlets, Craigslist, Apartments.com, Trulia, Zillow, Realtor.com. That should give you a great starting point. You can also hire a realtor to do this legwork for you. Best of luck with your new place.... more
Shawna, I know of a couple of homes that fit that description in the Meridian Kessler/Butler area that I have driven past in the past few days.
Let me know if I can help.
You can always try but that is a super long time for a seller to wait for closure. Do you have a penalty if you opt out of your lease early? Some landlords will let you out if they can find a new tenant - and not give you a penalty. Others will do so if you ask and give plenty of notice. Ask your landlord and see if there is a way to opt out so that you can find a place...and if you need help doing so, I would be happy to meet with you and help you find a home.
