I'm not aware of any landlord accepting a tenant without any deposit. Also if you can't come up with the first month rent then that spells trouble.

Have you found your home? If not you can check my website at www.dfwdreamhomes.net for the most current listing on homes on the market. Just keep in mind that typically you'll have to pay more for a home with 4 bedrooms with 3 baths then 4 bedrooms with 2 baths. Of course, it also depends on the updates and subdivision.

Try the website www.gosection8.com and when you find a property, talk with the seller and be honest! Often times honesty helps you win the deal!

Thanks and Good Luck

So do and some don't. If they do they may charge you an up charge because they may have to make ready the apartment in 6 months. Pick any 1 Realtor to assist you and be loyal to them.

Hello and thank for your request for Real Estate Information.

I now have a lease to own program available to my clients, if you have some interest please call, text or email me for more information. 214-802-6708 cell
PritchettHomes.com

Agreements – Lease to Own Program
Lease
The initial Lease term is for one year, and the Lease automatically renews every year as long as the resident is in compliance with the Lease and other agreements. Before the end of a Lease term, the resident has the right to give notice that he/she does not want to renew the Lease for another term. If for any reason the resident decides to leave the home at the end of a Lease term and is in compliance with the Lease, the full security deposit will be returned.
The resident's financial commitment is limited to the initial one year Lease. The resident does not have to renew the Lease after the initial year. The maximum number of Lease term years is five in the state of Illinois/Colorado and three in the state of Texas.
Over the life of the Lease, Lease to Own Home program expects residents to treat the home as their own- maintain the lawn and garden, remove snow or other debris, and complete minor repairs. Lease to Own Home program is responsible for any major maintenance items.

Purchase Right Agreement
The resident's Purchase Right Agreement (and therefore Purchase Right) is in effect as long as the Lease is in effect, and the resident is in compliance with these agreements.
The Purchase Right Agreement gives the resident the right to purchase the home from Lease to Own Home program at a pre-defined price for each year of the Lease, as long as the resident is in compliance with these agreements. The maximum number of years a resident can rent the home and have the Purchase Right is five years in the state of Illinois/Colorado and three years in the state of Texas. The Purchase Right does not obligate the resident to buy the home.

Good afternoon micastro45,

I’m no real estate agent, just a humble Mortgage Banker, but I can give you some guidance on your search for the right rental apartment.

In my experience in the real estate trade, I’ve discovered that the consumer is best served by adopting some simple strategies, whether you’re buying a home, selling one, or renting an apartment.

First: remember that real estate agents work on commission. The better quality agents---and those with the most experience---will be testing you from the initial contact to determine if you’re serious and will commit to using their services. Why? Because real estate is like any other business; you don’t sit at a table in a restaurant to read the menu without actually buying food at some point. It’s the same concept: the experienced real estate professional has to earn a living by renting apartments to serious and qualified prospective renters.

Therefore, the smart consumer should be well-prepared and committed to respecting the real estate professional’s time. Prepare yourself with three fundamentals: amenities, location, and price.

Know your requirements for the apartment you wish to rent in terms of amenities (one bedroom versus three bedrooms; elevator building or private house), location (proximity to public transportation or need for parking), and price. If you present yourself as well-prepared you’ll have a better chance of working with an experienced agent who will work hard to find you the right apartment.

Second, start with the internet---especially TRULIA.com---but stay “local.” Here on TRULIA.com you can easily find a local professional by clicking on “FIND an AGENT” at the top of this page. There you can hone in on a seasoned professional in exactly the area where you wish to rent your apartment.

TRULIA provides exceptional tools to help you as a consumer understand the quality of the professional you’re working with. Read the agent’s profile; check out the recommendations from previous clients; get to know the level of experience of the agent and the areas that agent covers.

Third, real estate agents are prevented by Federal regulations from answering certain types of questions. They cannot discuss schools or school districts, crime statistics, and a variety of other issues prohibited by Fair Housing regulations. If your agent is vague when you ask certain types of questions, now you know why.

Finally, demonstrate your level of seriousness to your real estate agent. Show up on time for your appointments to view apartments. If you’re required to submit documents for the Landlord to review with your rental application, get them into your agent’s hands pronto. Not only does this help you potentially get one step ahead of a competing renter, but you’ll be viewed by the Landlord as a responsible renter. Landlords prefer responsible renters, don’t they?

I hope that helps you improve the results of your search for an apartment, and helps you with a better quality experience.
