Here's a site to try: They're a local property management company, and often have listings in more affordable parts of town.

If you're on Facebook, make a post asking for friends to keep a lookout for you, and look for groups in your area that post rentals something like "Aurora, CO Metro Houses & Apts for Rent"

Driving the area and looking for For Rent signs, could find you landlords that aren't tech savvy and aren't reaching the same market / competition as those online.

I'll also third craigslist, do your best to stand out as a great candidate, don't focus on your credit history, focus on how good you'll take care of the place, and why you're easy to get along with. Of course disclose the credit, but don't make it your intro.

Best of luck, it's gotten tough out there, with vacancies below 6% for the last 5 years, it's really putting the squeeze on.

I agree with Robert. And...You need to be asking your attorney these questions. If the house was sold at auction on 4/9, and they let you stay there til 4/23? that sounds pretty nice to me. Many buyers (like investors) aren't so nice and could have put you on the street that day, or worse. You no longer owned that home and were essentially tresspassing.

Robert is right on...Recording with the county can take weeks. That has no reflection on when the property actually changed ownership.

And yes, you are still responsible for the HOA fees, trash, utilities, etc. that were being charged to you while you owned the home. If you had pursued a short sale, you could have had all of this negotiated.

Hi Jerry,

Unfortunately my clients and consumers as a whole (from articles that I have read) have had a very limited amount of success with loan modifications. I have had several short sale clients apply for them and be very diligent through the process only to find out that they were rejected or the loan modification really was not going to help them.

I always tell my clients that even if the bank offers you a modification to your loan, please have this reviewed by a Realtor as well as your financial planner and any attorney that you may work with.

At this point, please let me know if you need any help at all with a short sale as this would be an option for you as well to avoid losing your home to foreclosure.

Please let me know if we could get together for a cup of coffee sometime soon. I would be happy to walk you through the foreclosure process and show you how a short sale might be a better option for you.

Best of luck with you and your home.

Hi Craig,

I'm sorry to hear about your situation. And I encourage you to speak with a Real Estate Attorney for legal advice regarding your situation. There are laws regarding not only for how you can evict a borrower in Colorado, but also for the Habitability of the property. While I am not a lawyer, nor am I offering any legal advice regarding the matter, it seems that you need help with both issues. Here are a couple links that you may find helpful:

1) Colorado DOLA -- Information for Landlords --
2) Colorado DOLA -- Landlord/Tenant Rights --

Good luck,
