Wow. Well are they good tenants or do you just want to gauge them because you can? What type of jobs do they have? Do you even see them as human beings or just as "market value?"

Hello Parkergoddard, most likely if it is to good to be true it probably isn't true. An address can be verified with any licensed agent as to who you should be dealing with and their credentials.

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.

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 and pay less than rent in many local cities. You may qualify to buy with less than first, last and security deposit of any rental with down payment and closing cost assistance programs.

Good question. I have a 20 year old step son that lives with us. He works about 30 hours a week for $10.50hr. Had not graduated high school and no desire to do so. He does very little chores and never cleans his room or his bathroom. We charge him $255 for rent and food. My husband is thinking about charging an additional $50 for laundry and cleaning service. I'm thinking money is not as important to him as most of us. He's just last and wants to take the easy way out. Any suggestions? ... more

It depends on the landlord. Usually you'd need to be making at least three times the rent amount.

No. I'm a former realtor and Trulia is for residential listings only. There is a website - which is for commercial properties including rentals.

Welcome to Miami! (no pun intended). Probably best to start looking in June. Most landlords will opt for the offer with an immediate occupancy. But you also have to take into consideration the buildings approval times. Some buildings screening approvals can take up to 3-4 weeks. Although most are about 2 weeks. ... more
