Boo cash only they usually mean there is no mortgage involved. You would be able to provide money order or cashiers check. I would recommend working with a buyer's agent to assist you to make sure it's on the up and up.

Yes there are areas which include both students and older folk. Some are close to campus (N. Burns Park,untenured Burns Park, the apartments just N. of Medical campus on the Huron, and a couple of others come to mind.) Shopping is limited and expensive anywhere around campus. As you move west toward the downtown and past it the balance tips toward nonstudents, fewer rentals no less expensive but one has somewhat more shopping options with the farmeers market and Kerrytown. West past the downtown one is in an area of far fewer rentals, very nice. Ann Arbor has excellent bus service and some of the periferal areas can offer lower prices, walking to shopping centers and lower costs, some excellent large public parks are further out (I'm talking 3-5 miles from campus, really not far at all). There are many options but everything in Ann Arbor flows outward from the UofM central campus and the closer you are the more it will cost. If I were looking I'd look at an area in the NE- Geddes Lakes Condos. It has good bus service to campus 3m away, the best grounds and ammenities of any complex at any price, an international mix of residents of different ages, 1m to shopping along Plymouth Rd. That's were I would want to rent. Bob Eckstein Howard Hanna Real Estate Services - more important- resident pretty steadily since 1962... more
With messed up credit, no one is going to give you a loan. Work on fixing your credit by going to your local non profit housing group. Their credit counselor will go over your credit report and tell you what you havew done wrong and what you should be doing. When your FICO is 640+, you can buy a home. Remember 1/3 of your mortgage approval is your willingness to pay your bills which is your credit.... more
The local rental market is HOT right now and nice houses at fair prices are going pretty quickly. How your place stacks up to the rest in the same area/condition/going rental price is the major factor as to how quickly you are going to find a renter. How soon is quick? Sometimes its a matter of days and sometimes weeks--3 weeks is not wholly unreasonable depending on the facts at hand--especially considering you just finished the improvements a week ago. How many showings have you had since the improvements were made? If it's only been up for a week in the improved condition and new price, that doesn't sound unreasonable at all. How long is your listing contract? How long did your agent intially estimate your market time would be--and at what price? If the home is being marketed in the local real estate system (MLS) and you are getting showings and offers it sounds like your agent is--at the very least--doing a significant and crucial part their job. If, however, negotiations are mishandled (by the owner or the agent), that could squash a deal that would otherwise sail through.
But, before you start blaming anyone, you need to thoroughly dissect why the two offers stalled, and what is going on with the marketing (including internet activity on Trulia and Zillow), the number of showings, recent local comparable closed transactions (time on market and price), the comparable condition of the property, and above all--the price. Do you have an open line of communication available with your agent? After all this data is examined a pretty clear picture as to why the home isn't moving should become pretty clear. Good luck!... more
Contact a local agent to look for a lease for you. Maybe they can convince the Listing Agent and the Owner of the property that you would be a good tenant. It may include a larger security deposit, verification of income and maybe even proof of 3 - 6 months rent in your account.
You should have a Realtor do the negotiating for you to secure the best scenario for both parties. Start by finding a Realtor in the area you are looking in.
I hope this helps.
I've checked the MLS and I don't see any available properties in Palmer Park for lease in your price range.
