As long as your retirement income is still enough for loan:debt ratio, a lender would not care where the money comes from as long as it is legal...heck social security is more of a guarantee than any job income. ... more

Hello,

Thanks for your email.. The house is still available. I decided to rent the house because we are going to spend more time here in Tuscumbia, Alabama about 4 years.. Let me start by introducing myself. I must confess that I am very new in this landlord business..However, My name is Steven Chappell. I own the house, Due to my job as a Medical Doctor, I works for American Red Cross Lutheran Hospital Donor Center, and now i have been transfer to Tuscumbia, Alabama to work in a branch over here. We spent less time in the States so we could not get a hold on any Realtor to handle this rent issue, although it was when We knew how long we are going to stay in Alabama that We decided to rent out the house. Don't be surprised when you get to the home and see a for sale sign in the home, i had the intention of selling the home once but i thought about it again and decided to rent out the home.. The Realtor are trying to take advantage of me, asking for too much and trying to rip me off and it is a very beautiful home and i will always love to call it my home. So i will want you not to bother yourself about any sign you see in the home saying it is for sale.. The utilities are included in the rent, because of this reason and more we need a responsible person that can take very good care of it as we are not after the money , but want it to be clean and for you to take it as if it were yours.

Information about the house below:

The rent is:$750 Security Deposit: $700
3 Bedroom 2 Bathroom
Address: 1237 Belair St E, Lehigh Acres, FL 33974
Pet are also Welcome.

Please get back to me with the Information requested below I could go through it and let you know if you are capable of renting my house or not.

I got a very similar email back on a house i was interested in. Once he gave me the address i decided to google the address so i could see the location and came up with a totally different picture from the house in the ad so i emailed him back to get clarification of the address. Next i decided to save the image of the house listed on the ad and done a google image search and found the house he listed at a different address. Both house are listed trivia and zillow as being for sell and same description is used.Here is the email i received


Hello,


I received your inquiry about my property for rent at 130 Cherry St, Folkston, GA 31537, My name is Wayne Collins, My family and I just moved down to Santa Ana,CA due to my job transfer, we will be here for 4 to 5 years. My initial plan was to sell the house but I find it difficult to let go this adorable home, I have decided to rent home to a responsible tenant who is willing to take very good care of it in our absence. Pets are allowed as long as they are not destructive. The rent is $500 and security deposit is $500 and total move-in cost is $1,000 and all the utilities are included in the monthly rent,as i am in a governmental programmer that sponsors my utilities on monthly basis and pets are also allowed. Feel free to contact me via email for further inquiries .You can drive-by to view the outside and neighborhood of the house and get back to me with the rental questionnaire filled out.
General house description:
Bedroom: 3
Bathroom: 3
Below are some questions I need you to answer so we can discuss further. You can only drive by the property for now to check the outside and the neighborhood, it is available for a long lease. Get back to me for further discussion on how to get the keys and paperwork of the property to you if I find you suitable and decide to rent the property to you..

Looking forward to hearing from you with all these details so that I can have it in my file in case of issuing the receipt and contacting you. Await your reply so we can discuss on how to get the document and the key to you.
N.B: I want you to know that we never had an intention of renting out the home until we got down here when my wife got sick so we had to rent out the home so we can use the monthly rent as a source of income to carter for my wife and the kids,so should in case we had an intention of renting the home then we would have drop down the keys with someone to handle the rental on our behalf but since we don't then that is why we had t o bring the keys over here,so we will be mailing out the keys to you as soon as we finalize the rental processes OK?
Thanks and God bless.

Susie Kay answered:
It depends on your local real estate market. Here in DFW area, we are experiencing a hot seller's market in many cities. With so many offers on the table sellers won't even look at those asking for closing cost. Lenders can tell you that whatever they want but doesn't mean it's going to happen. You would need to work with a local realtor to learn about the local market.

I hope this makes sense!

It all comes down to the contract negotiations, there are mandatory county costs in the state of Oklahoma, but it is negotiable who pays them.

Be aware that scams do exist; be mindful that such web sites are third party sites, so the information is fed by various sources, therefore data is not really verified. If you choose not to work with an agent of your own always verify ownership before exchanging any money/personal information--make certain they are who they claim to be. Never wire any money, if it sounds too good to be true, it is. For scam related information see link.
