It would be nice to be able to add your own notes (just for you) against the listings, especially on the mobile App. This way when you are out and look at a place you can record your thoughts…

You need to go to Airbnb.com or Vrbo.com for short term rentals. Trulia, Zillow and others are for permanent residential listings only.

Contact a local realtor. He/She can email you listings directly from the MLS with your specific criteria.

Kathy Burgreen answered:
Lenders don't care about evictions as much as landlords do. Your credit score is more important to lenders. If you are buying, then you can do the following: pay a higher down payment - at least 10%; ask your lender for advice about improving your credit; buy a cheaper home or smaller home - one that you can easily afford; etc.

What you need to prove to landlords if you have an eviction - that you have the income to pay your mortgage loan on time every month + your other monthly debts.

If you have an eviction, your prior rental history is poor - not great.

Maybe I'm just accustomed to large Texas houses but those linked houses are tiny!! What's the square footage I didn't see? More land in Texas. My home is a tiny bit over 5000 square feet and 1.2 acres about. Any links to similarly priced Mass homes? ... more

Kathy Burgreen answered:
As a retired realtor, the TRUTH is realtors own the MLS system and intentionally limit the information sent to websites like Zillow, Trulia, etc. The reason is realtors need buyers like you to call them for the missing information so they can hopefully convert you to a client. If websites like Zillow and Trulia had all the search filters that the MLS systems do, then buyers like you would have no need to call a realtor. This would slow down their business or put them out of business and no realtor wants that.

Items deliberately left off of real estate websites:

HOA fees
property taxes in states / counties that do not disclose property taxes - Texas does NOT disclose property taxes.
filters to search for specific types of homes - ranch, 2 family, townhouse, co-ops
rentals - whether pets are allowed or not
if home is located in school district that the website says it is

You can type "ranch home" in the Keyword search box but the results will not be specific to just ranch homes. Bottom line - a realtor can email you listings directly from the MLS with your specific criteria. No charge to you.
