Hello Amanda, there are rooms for rent in the rental section from $420 monthly rent. The room rentals in Riverside start from $645 monthly rent on Beware of the many rental scams out there. Do not give any information out until you verify whom you should be dealing with on each address.

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.

Hello Vanessa, no beware of the many rental scams out there these days on all sites. The scams are on all of the rental listing sites except one that us agents/broker use such as mls, multiple listing service. The rentals in Riverside start from $750 for 1bd 1ba condo and up.

You should not give anyone any funds or personal information without confirming with a licensed agent/broker or management company to find out whom you should be dealing with and the status of any address of interest.

You should study RENT vs BUY options as you may qualify to buy with minimum out of pocket expenses and pay less than rent in many cities. You may qualify to buy FHA with fico scores between 500-579 with 10% down or minimum 580 fico score may qualify FHA 3.5% down or as low as .5% half percent down payment program. You may consider 3% down conventional from a minimum 620 fico score. Your fico scores can be raised within 3-4 days in most cases to qualify for programs, rates and terms as necessary.

Iif you figure out what cities/zip codes you are considering, minimum number of bedrooms and the maximum payment/price you are looking to achieve you can be emailed listings to fit your search criteria. The purchase in Riverside start from 115k for 1bd 1ba condo which is as low as $575 down payment with a minimum 580 fico score.

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. Your qualifications will be determined by your credit profile, debt to income ratios, fico scores, home price, loan program and how much you want to invest into the down payment and closing costs.

It only takes a few dozen questions to qualify, go over your options and email you listings to study and compare. Here are some links to study as well as web reference links to many loan program pages offered...

Hello Karen,

After all of the condo conversions during the housing boom there has been a deficiency in rental units. This coupled with the perceived risk currently associated with purchasing a home, and the unfortunate foreclosure rate locally; there is a market there.

Depending on the type of rental property you are looking into as well as location and other factors it may be a good investment.

Hope that this helps,
Terry Hammill

Hello Eddie !!

Have you considered buying a home instead of renting ??? Unless you just filed for BK and/or had a short sale or lost a home to foreclosure (within the last 3 years), you really owe it to yourself and your family to look at buying instead. -- Don't think you have enough for a downpayment ??? Want to be given a nice surprise ?!?!?
â–ºWhen do you have a moment to talk ???
NO Strings attached, No Commitment to purchase required, just a nice chat . Let me warn you, its cheaper to buy your home than to rent these days !!!!

Most Kindest Regards,
Mario Gonzalez

The other answers are excellent, although you may want to check with one of the real estate offices that have a large rental business. Look in the physical or on-line yellow pages for listings.

Additionally, you could check Craigslist's homes for rent section or the Riverside Press-Enterprise on line at

Hope this helps.
