Tony Grech answered:
The guy below is incorrect.
A gift is exactly that, a gift. He must sign a letter stating no repayment is expected.

A secured loan (or "collateralized loan") is a permissible source of funds for a gift. Dad would need to provide a copy of the note from the loan against his truck, plus a copy of the proceeds check and proof he deposited it into his account before gifting it to you.

It's a heck of a paper trail, but it is permissible under FHA guidelines. Here are the pertinent guidelines:

No, appraisal is almost always paid by the buyer. However, everything is negotiable. But if it doesn't appraise, then you have a whole other problem to deal with than who should pay for the appraisal. Seller may choose to not drop the price to the appraised value, and you may be forced to terminate (if you can't come up with the difference yourself). ... more

A lot of tax credit rentals will rent as long as there are no outstanding elec/gas bills owed or any active evictions from past landlords. The rest is mostly overlooked for lease approval as long as there are no felons less than 7 yrs old. Sex offenses are a permanent no with tax credit. (23 yrs property manager) Check who you owe and fix utility bills owed and you will have a better chance of renting. Good luck. ... more

Hire an agent. Trulia does not permit for sale by owner listings, so if you want your home to be advertised here you need to find an agent to work with.

Typically apartment searching is 30-45 days prior. In MT, ask a local agent their suggestion as it may vary. Rentals want to be leased as soon as possible.
Best of luck in your apartment search!
