You can not on Trulia, you would have to use a site that is based off your local MLS to search by MLS numbers

NOT TRUE!! And don't listen to anybody who tells you otherwise. I'm a retired realtor and the facts are:

1. Lenders do need to verify your finances in order to qualify you for a mortgage loan.
2. Lenders will verify: type of employment (full time / part time / salaried (if you get a W2) / independent contractor / self employed (if you get a 1099) / hourly wages, etc.
3. Source of Income - Social Security / Pension / Annuity / Savings / Investments / Rental Property (if you collect rent income) - This is YOUR CATEGORY
4. Credit - Credit History and Credit Score (your FICO score needs to be 620 or higher.
5. Debt to Income Ratio - your fixed debts (those reported by credit bureaus) need to be 40% or less than your income. (Example: car loan, credit cards, furniture loan, mortgage, student loan)
6. Savings / Investments - Do you have available cash to pay the down payment + cash for closing costs? Lenders will also want cash reserves in case of emergencies.
7. Tax Returns (last 2 years)

As you can see, if you are not employed / retired, lenders will use your Social Security, savings / investments or pension, etc. to verify if you can afford to pay the monthly mortgage loan. Anybody who tells you otherwise - go find somebody else.

If this has 2 bedrooms and you are willing to consider renting to a family, myself, my 11 & my 16 year old, I'd greatly appreciate it. I am sorry I do not have any answers for your specific questions but I do know, just stay away from craigslist and padmapper is also a good place to advertise in addition to trulia. CL has become a source for scammers. I am following this question so if you respond to me I will be notified, and we can exchange numbers if you are willing. Thanks. ... more
