Hi,

It appears that the fraudulent listing you reported has already been removed from the site.

We are definitely aware of the influx of scam listings that have recently been appearing on our site. Please know we are actively working to filter out fraudulent listings from our site as we take this issue very seriously, and we appreciate your patience and understanding while we continually refine our process.

If there is anything else I can assist with, please let me know.

Hello,

At this time, unfortunately, we currently do not have listings for rent to own homes. You may try your luck though and search our website using the Keyword section of the search filter which can be found in the All Filters button. However, these listings are extremely rare.

Regards,

The areas that are safe are Newport, Hoboken and Journal Square. It's better to live near the path train. I have a studio in a luxury condo building with a 24 hour doorman and 3 block away from the path train. You can contact me at rc1617@nyu.edu ... more

Hello Josh, you may get some locals to chime in soon but here are some links to start some research with. Are you looking to rent or buy? What is the maximum payment your looking to achieve? How many bedrooms, bathrooms and if you want a condo, townhome or single family home.

These links may assist you with crime statistics:

The rentals in 94553 start from $1,500 for 2bd 1ba apt. The purchase in 94553 zip code of Martinez start from 259k for 1bd 1ba condo, from 330k for 2bd 2ba condo and the single family homes start from 399k for 3bd 1ba home. You may qualify to buy with minimum out of pocket expenses with down payment and closing costs assistance.

If you figure out what cities/zip codes you are considering, minimum number of bedrooms and the maximum payment/price you are looking to achieve any agent can email listings to fit your search criteria. Your email address is needed to set you up for the automatic daily updates.

If you decide you want to buy you will need to be pre-approved to be able to meet an agent to view and submit offers on any homes of your choice. You will need to gather some documentation for each applicant.

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 costs. Your fico scores can be raised within 3-4 days in most cases to qualify for programs, rates and terms as necessary.

If you are buying a primary residence you could consider a down payment assistance program such as CalHFA or Sapphire Grant which can cover your down payment and closing costs. You may close with minimal out of pocket expenses. You may consider the CalHFA from a minimum 640 fico score and the Sapphire Grant from a minimum 620 fico score up to 424k.

You may qualify FHA from fico scores between 500-579 with 10% down or minimum 580 fico score may qualify FHA 3.5% down up to 424k. You may consider 3% down conventional from a minimum 620 fico score or even 5% down conventional with NO Mortgage insurance (Lender paid MI) up to 424k.

From Meridian St. west there is more crime. Check the crime reports. Hemet does get a bad rap and it does have it's problems. If you don't have to raise kids it is not a bad place to live. It is NOT always hot. If you want a place to live that is less expensive and a slower pace with all the conveniences that you need it is not bad. I moved here seven years ago and have never had a problem. Pay attention and lock your doors and you should be fine. I lived in San Diego most of my life and I am happier here. The closer you live to stores the more there is crime. Guess these crooks don't all have cars. ... more
