I;m a realtor and listed a home 30 days ago in the MLS but does not show on your site?
Make sure that you allowed syndication in your MLS set up. Also make sure your broker allows syndication. If both of these are set to yes, then Trulia and Zillow will get the info.

I am looking for a townhouse to rent in the Lake Berkeley area preferable. Or the 34746 zip code. My budget around the 1,000.00-1050 monthly.
One of my investors owns one of these. The HOA has recently changed the rules and now require tenants to have a 700 credit score. So do be aware of that.

We are looking to relocate to Buford, GA and would like to buy a home. Our credit scores are 578 and 572. What are the chances of getting a loan?
Peapod,
Did you consult a mortgage lender and see what products are out there for you? That would be your first step.
Good Luck!!
