All rentals I know of will require a credit check. However I have a great lender that will help you get where you need to be to buy. This lender also specializes in VA loans with NO Money Down.

Very little police presence here in North Arlington. Residential and auto break-ins are monthly, prostitutes from apartments near Brown and 360 and the ghetto of that whole area. This is where the murderer of the church pastor lived. Meth houses in some of the rental homes, and drag racing down the neighborhood streets. No real restaurants except down in entertainment district, and ghetto Kroger is dirty and old, staffed with rude people that are just there to collect a check. ... more

As far as crime rate, your best bet is to contact the local police department. As for school, it is subjective. You may check http://www.greatschools.org/ or http://www.schooldigger.com/.

Zyre Sullivan answered:
I have heard that a lot from clients. Especially here recently. These same clients ended up smiling ear to ear and telling their friends and family about the superior level of service that they received. As your representative it is my obligation to find the core of that stress and relieve it as much as possible. A way of doing this is to give as much information upfront as possible so that there are no surprises. It also helps to have a good relationship with the listing agents so that you can come to terms and know your contract will go through without worrying about the possibility of a bidding war. Having the right inspectors and home warranty people will also help to give you piece of mind. If your agent is not on their job maybe you deserve an upgrade. ... more

Trulia does not allow "for sale by owners" so you would have to get with a local agent.

Have you ever thought about diversifying your portfolio and including some general office building space? Commercial space can be a good investment to consider and there are some great properties in Arlington to purchase and manage. ... more

Robbie English answered:
If you are having an issue paying them, you can call the county and typically they will work with you for a payment plan. In asking this question, I quite suppose that you have no mortgage and therefore probably have a lot of equity in the property and would not want to loose it. ... more

Robbie English answered:
If you do in fact find a rent to own property that you want to purchase, please make sure that you have a title search performed on the property by a title company and have a real estate attorney review your contract for purchase, deed work and mortgage documentation. Having a professional review this documentation for you can save you should there ever be an issue in the future with you and the current seller. ... more

Don Groff answered:
Probably not. It helps to have some sort of established credit history where you can show that you can handle credit but even if you do not each home is individually owned so you should be able to find a home to rent. Take the time to explain your situation in a letter of explanation for any potential landlords.

Hope this helps

Don Groff answered:
You will need some credit. There are things you can do like getting a secured credit card that reports to the credit bureaus. You can also set up a CD with a bank for say $1000 and then take out a secured loan for the same amount using the CD as collateral. These will help build your credit right away. Never charge over 40% of the available credit on the credit card to get the maximum benefit. Keep the balance below 30% ideally even if you don't pay it off every month.

You will still probably need 24 months credit history but I have had some luck with less than a full 24 months in the past.

Hope this helps.

Kelsey Hicks answered:
Mr. Nguyen,

I have attached a link to edulog query. You can type in the address that you are interested in, choose what grade level and it will tell you if there is bus service to that address. For 6104 Rising Meadow it states that it is walking distance to all three schools so there is not bus service. If that doesn't seem to be correct, you can always call the transportation division of the AISD and they will help you. 682-867-7850
If you need someone to show you the home and you are not already working with an agent, I would be happy to help. Have a great day!
