Hello Sheabullen27, most agents do not show rentals. We assist renters with the rental listings to study and compare with purchase and decide. Los Angeles is a big city so you need to narrow it down to where you want to live.

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 you can be emailed listings to fit your search criteria.

You should study RENT vs BUY listings to compare payments and qualifications. Rent to own usually want 10-15% down which is non refundable. Do you have 10-15% down payment?

You may already qualify for FHA financing. If you have lower scores between 500-579 you may consider 10% down FHA and minimum 580 may consider 3.5% down FHA. If you have a minimum 620 fico score you may consider 3% down conventional. You may consider down payment and closing cost assistance programs from a minimum 640 fico score.

Recently I was involved in a scam with a company pretending to be a loan company that went in search of a lender that would lend money to people with bad credit. To make a really long story short I was naive and ended up wiring a total of $13000.00 to Nigeria,Ghana,Malaysia and Singapore.The worst part of this whole thing is that I did my research like I was supposed to, the company was listed in the phone book in MA, and I also checked them out!!! Everything checked out fine and when the money never came in the company said that they were going to refund my money and when the money never came in I tried to call the company and the recording now says Thank you Goodbye and hangs up on you.

That is a tough one. I have a few friends that have similar situations and unfortunately they just have to tough it out. Long Beach is a nice alternative for the Irvine Drive but that still leaves you with a long commute. The next thing I would consider is seeing if your employer has flexible hours. Say you work from 7-3 each day or 4 10 hour days so you get 3 days off? Just some thoughts. Good luck and let me know if I can help you out with either the sale of your home or the purchase of a new one.

The best area for you is to rent in the BeverlyCenter-North Miracle Mile area. That is the mid-point between your two locales. The area encompasses Beverly Blvd. Between LaBrea Avenue andFairfax Avenue. There are upscale shops and restaurants such as THE GROVE. Perfectly walkable and the neighborhoods are full of nice architecture that remind us of old Los Angeles. Are You looking for an apt. or home to rent? ... more
