A job loss does not affect credit scores. What affects credit scores is not paying your bills, having your home foreclosed on, any liens on your home, etc.

You could have avoided a low credit score. After you lost your job, did you cut all your expenses to the bone - no you did not. If you owned your home, did you try to sell it & move into a rental - no you did not. Instead you chose to continue living as if you were still employed. That was your biggest mistake. Again, your job loss had nothing to do with your low credit score. Now you're suffering the consequences.

Sorry but landlords are running a business. They don't want to rent to people with low credit scores. You will need to prove that you have been paying your bills on time every month & what are you doing to improve your credit score? Having a co signer is not enough. What will work is if you can pay 1st & last month's rent upfront + 1 month's rent as security deposit.

Are you looking to rent a property or buy an investment property to rent? If buy then get pre-approved for a loan before doing anything to see how much you can afford. If looking to rent, then it will depend on the landlord as all have different standards they want. Some may take lower credit applicants and some may require a few months down to guarantee them in case of default. ... more

You can report the listing directly to trulia's customer service department, but it is doubtful anyone from trulia will see your post here.

Try flagging the listing as well. Click on the "more" tab, then flag. ... more

Hi, Bonodino -

Your home in Boynton Beach may have some difficulty in assessment; at present I believe the county assesses it at approximately $205,000. However, because Ocean Ridge has houses in every size and shape, you would be best off bringing in a professional and neutral appraiser.

In today's quirky market, however, the problem with appraising your Boynton Beach home before there is a contract on it is that the lending bank will still want to send it's own appraiser. If the lending appraiser's estimate of your Boynton Beach house is lower than that of the appraiser you hired, then you may have problems with the sales contract: the buyer may not want to pay the difference between what he agreed to and the amount that the bank's appraiser has determined is the value of your home in Boynton Beach.

Nonetheless, it is worth the $275-$350 it may cost you to get an appraisal beforehand. That way, you will have an idea of how your home in Ocean Ridge compares to other homes on in the neighborhood. Because, from what I can see looking at valuations of other homes on your block, the county has assessed them all differently.

If you would like some help in selling your home, or you would like the number of a couple of appraisers, please call me and I will be glad to assist you.

Hi, Marie -

If you have a home in Boynton Beach (zip code 33435), you can get acces to the beach by crossing at Woolbright (more to the south) or Ocean Avenue (more to the north). For those whose homes are as far west in Boynton Beach as route 441 (State Road 7), you're looking at 25-30 minutes drive from west to east, but parking is usually available if you have a town permit. If your Boynton Beach home is more to the south end of Boynton, you can cross at Atlantic Avenue in Delray Beach and find yourself at the beach.

Hi Tom

Thanks for your reply and comments. You've done your research and are very knowledge. Coincidentally the bank sent me up to Jupiter yesterday 9/2/11 to knock on the door of a property very close to Jupiter inlet and the lighthouse. I noticed you’re in Jupiter. I hope that we can work together one day in the future. Have a great Labor Day weekend

Tom Priester answered:

The best advice I can give you is contact a minimum of three professional Realtors® and have them present you with the current market conditions affecting the sale of your property. Each will be able to show you what they will do to sell your property for the most amount of money in the shortest amount of time. I would be very honored to be on your list to interview and am easily reached at the contact information below.

Market conditions in the area are excellent in many neighborhoods but I need additional information on your property to give you a price in line with what the market will positively react to.

I hope this information is helpful but if I can offer anything additional please let me know.

Always at Your Service,
