Hello Bianca, Vernon is an industrial city and there are no rentals in Vernon but there are in other local cities. You should study RENT vs BUY listings to compare payments.

The rentals in Whittier for 3bd start from $1,795 for 3bd 2ba apt and the single family homes start from $2,200 monthly rent. There are some other local cities that may be more affordable.

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

Hello Meredithj.harris+trulia, so what is your question exactly. You will need to be pre-approved to be able to meet any agents to view and submit offers on any homes of your choice.

Do you have down payment and closing costs or do you need down payment and closing cost assistance programs? Your qualifications will be determined by your credit profile, debt to income ratios, fico scores, loan program and how much you want to invest into the down payment and closing cost.

You may consider FHA 3.5% down from a minimum 580 fico score and from 3% down conventional from a minimum 620 fico score up to $636,150. You may consider down payment and closing cost assistance from a minimum 640 fico score.

If the home prices is more than conforming loan amount you may consider 5% down from a minimum 720 fico score up to 1.5m and from 10% down from a minimum 680 up to 2.5m.

How much do you pay in rent and what is the maximum payment you are looking to afford? You can be emailed listings to fit your search criteria from any agents. When you are pre-approved you will know your qualifications to start shopping...

Since you are not the landlord or the owner, you have no rights with NYC and you cannot evict anybody. The only thing you can do is complain to your landlord or the owner of the building. Unfortunately, if they are OK with the situation, you have to accept it. This is life in the Big Apple. ... more

Yes, awesome community! Gorgeous neighborhoods offering many different price ranges. Short drive to the ocean, highly rated schools, and great pools and amenities including lazy river, and soon to open 4 story "spray park" water playground. We give a 2% New Home Rebate in ANY new home community in Florida (approx. 75% of our typical 3% commission), which is the highest rebate we've seen offered by a real estate company in northeast Florida.

With a co-signer, and a down payment you may be able to purchase. Talk to a loan officer to find out for certain.

Good luck.

Hi,

The data you reported is coming from your county records, because of this I am unable to edit the information. This data is gathered by a third-party data collector and if correct with your county will be updated on Trulia when the updated data gets sent to us. My best recommendation would be to contact your county to ensure that the public records are up to date.

If the county records are correct and Trulia has not received the updated data yet, owners have the ability to edit their home facts on Trulia which appear in the 'Owner Information' section. Please know that edit home facts feature is currently removed from the property pages while we improve the feature. While we do not have a specific date for when they will be available, I can assure you this is only temporary. We thank you for your patience.

Thank you for using Trulia!

Kathy Burgreen answered:
The 1 year requirement is because the mortgage loan documents you signed is a residential loan and has a clause that states you will occupy your home for the first 12 months and you cannot rent it out. If your current home was purchased as an investment property with an investment type loan, you could rent it out the day after you close (back in August).

The difference is residential loans provide the buyer with low interest rates, low down payment, low lender fees, etc. An investment loan requires higher interest rates, higher down payment, higher lender fees, etc.

WARNING: If you rent out your home BEFORE the 12 months timeline and you signed a residential mortgage loan, you are committing mortgage fraud. Lenders have methods for catching owners who rent out their homes before the first year and it means the lender can penalize you severely or take you to court. Do not even think about doing it until you have passed the 1st year in your new home.

Once you passed your 1st year occupying your home, you can rent it out. As for buying a new home, as long as you qualify financially, you should have no problem.
