Hello Ken, the 1bd 1ba apt start from $1,825 month rent in 90803 zip, from $2,200 for 1bd 1ba condo with 7th floor ocean view and up. The purchase start from 348k for a large 737 sf studio condo on the marina.

You may qualify to buy with less than first, last and security deposit with down payment and closing cost assistance programs and pay about the same payment as rent. You should study RENT vs BUY listings to compare and decide.

How much do you pay in rent and what is the maximum payment you are looking to achieve? Are there any other cities you are considering?

If you figure out what cities/zip codes you are considering, minimum number of bedrooms and the maximum payment/price you are looking to achieve any agent can email listings to fit your search criteria. Your email address is needed to set you up for the automatic daily updates.

This is Southern California. There is no Shut Down period. It is sunny 320+ days a year. Are you looking to buy beach front or Bay Front? Have you considered the Peninsula as well? Feel free to call me when you have a moment. We can discuss in further detail the upside potential of owning in Belmont Shore.

All the best,

Hello Logan, the rentals in Belmont Shore start from $2,085 for 1bd 1ba apartment, $2,300 for 2bd 1ba apartment and up. The purchase start from 499k for 2bd 2ba condo and up in Belmont Shore.

You should study RENT vs BUY options as you may qualify to buy with minimum out of pocket expenses and pay less than rent in many cities. Your fico scores can be raised within 3-4 days in most cases to qualify for programs, rates and terms as necessary.

Beware of the many rental scams out there these days on all sites. The scams are on all of the rental listing sites except one that us agents/broker use such as mls, multiple listing service.

You should not give anyone any funds or personal information without confirming with a licensed agent/broker or management company to find out whom you should be dealing with and the status of any address of interest.

You will need to be pre-approved to be able to meet an agent to view and submit offers on any homes of your choice. Your qualifications will be determined by your credit profile, debt to income ratios, fico scores, loan program and how much you want to invest into the down payment and closing costs.

You may qualify FHA from fico scores between 500-579 with 10% down or minimum 580 fico score may qualify FHA 3.5% down or as low as .5% half percent down payment program up to 417k. You may consider 3% down conventional from a minimum 620 fico score or even 5% down conventional with NO Mortgage insurance (Lender paid MI) up to 417k.

It only takes a few dozen questions to qualify, go over your options and email you listings to study and compare. Here are some links to study as well as web reference links to many loan program pages offered...

I suggest you hire the agent who you feel will offer you the best representation. You are not obligated to use an agent who simply showed you the home, especially If you feel another agent is better suited to represent you.

Best of luck!
