Slim, but it depends on the landlord.

Private landlords--as opposed to management companies--sometimes are more flexible.

However, your ability to pay will be very closely scrutinized. Also--and the maximum amount (which I don't know) is set by state law--you might be asked to provide a larger security deposit.

Hope that helps.

Hi Kathy,
You have some options.
1. You can buy, contingent on the sale of your home. This would require you to sell quickly to maintian the sellers interest. You lose some negotiating ability because a contingency like this can be like asking for a discount.
2. You can list your home for sale and keep an eye out for what you want to buy once yours sells. This would give you the maximum potential for getting the most out of your home. If yours sells, and you don't see what you want to buy right away, do a short term rental.
3. You can likely qualify for a mortgage, since you don't have one already. Find the home you want, buy it and move into it then sell yours. Once yours is sold, pay off the mortgage, or invest the proceeds from your sale in a safe place and enjoy the low rates and tax deduction. The only downside is the lender fees and the interest you'll pay until you sell.
I hope this helps.
