It's NOT Wichita Falls, Texas. Here our mortgage is right at $1000/month and our taxes come in at an additional $480. The tax rate is so high that much of the city looks blighted simply because almost anything you do to try to make your home look better adds to your taxes. People cannot afford to maintain their property. Ask yourself..... what sort of home maintenance could you do if you got to keep even half of that $480? ... more

If you are selling yourself, this is a lesson where a good listing agent earns their keep. First, you should never accept any offer without a deposit, seller signature and proof of funds or a pre qual letter that has been checked out. For the legal part, you may now need to speak to a lawyer. The wording of your contract will tell if it expires after 30 days. It should also say if you should have received a deposit and who was suppose to hold it. The listing agent usually does in their escrow account here which protects the seller. It will also matter if you wrote in the contract can not be assigned or sold. Because it is a legal matter, ask a lawyer to review your contract ... more

Hello Africanqueen3450, yes but you may be required additional deposits. It will be up to each rental management company guidelines or each landlord/owner's choice. Santa Clara is a higher rent area so what are you looking to afford?

The rentals in Santa Clara start from $1,650 for 1bd 1ba apt. There is a waiting list for studio apts from $751 monthly rent posted. You may be able to find a room for rent that may be affordable as well.

If you figure out what cities/zip codes you are considering, minimum number of bedrooms, baths and the maximum payment you are looking to afford you can be set up for daily automatic emails to fit your search criteria.

FYI, you may consider FHA financing two years after a BK discharge date. You may then consider as low as 3.5% down FHA from a minimum 580 fico score. Lower scores between 500-579 will require 10% down to qualify FHA. You will then also be able to consider down payment and closing cost assistance programs from a minimum 640 fico score.

Good luck to you.
