Hi Julie.
It's my understanding accounts and profiles are now being handled through Zillow, and once opened/complete are view-able on Trulia.

Hi James... Normally a lender wants to see a 2 year history of employment in the same line of work on conventional loans, However if you were getting out of college and now starting a new career then a 2 year history is not required. FHA loans have more flexible guidelines regarding this situation. I used to be a mortgage underwriter and I know guidelines do change.What I would do is contact your local realtor and they can refer you to a reputable lender to get you preapproved. GOOD LUCL :-) ... more

Nick, there are a lot of great rental areas in Bozeman, but I would suggest you look in the Baxter Meadows area. There are a lot of condominiums and apartment complexes in the area. If you are looking for something cheap and dog friendly, Trout Meadows LLC is a good place to start.

But you should also consider what your goals will be for finding a rental in Bozeman. Work? School? Location does matter a good amount as public transportation is limited. You may want to focus on a places that will be close to where you and your girlfriend may be working.

If you want to talk in more detail, don't hesitate to contact me.

Daisy, I'm afraid you won't like my answer much, but it might help you out.
First, your Realtor should have let you know the contract was out of date. Period. No Excuse! Second, you should have read the contract and known the date also. You should have also read the addendum asking for repairs and noted the missing items. I assume you signed the addendum and the Buy Sell agreement? OK, your Realtor messed up. Let's go with that. First, get the contract back in date by using an amendment which your Realtor should prepare. Have it signed by yourself and the seller and have it reflect a hard closing date. If the seller isn't making repairs, include a dollar amount on the amendment that will be paid to you in lieu of him doing repairs, there's a good chance he's broke and can't afford to make the repairs, something your Realtor should have foreseen and accounted for in the agreement to buy and sell.

Lessons here? First, get another Realtor. Sorry, but these are basic items yours missed. Second, don't assume you don't have some responsibility to read your agreements and understand them. This is serious business and you have to take responsibility for understanding what you're doing even when you have attorneys or Realtors or.... (name someone here) who are involved in the transaction.

Good luck.

I am a former tenant and it did not go well. The house has lovely views, but it is not energy efficient and the owners, though they live in Oregon are a nightmare.
