Trulia does not list, sell or rent homes. They simply are a site where agents can post ads for sale or lease. They do not edit ads. You need to contact the agent that posted the ad. Also, In rentals it is set up to show monthly rates, not daily ... more

I applaud you for rebuilding after a tough time. Many people have done it successfully but let me warn you Rent to own is not a good way to go about it. Most of the people who find these schemes never buy the home and leave the arrangement worse off than if they hadn't done it at all.
Don't spend money on fictitious lists. If you want to rebuild your credit follow this advice and you'll be far better off.
1. Find the cheapest place you can stand to live in and rent it. The fact that it's not a house or your "dream house" will serve as motivation to work hard and get out sooner.
2. If you have any left over credit, use is wisely. Credit is a muscle which if used properly will grow and build you up. If misused, will create pain and discomfort and do long term damage.
3. If you don't have any existing credit, go to your bank or credit union and ask for a "secured card". You deposit money into a savings account and you have most or all of that amount as your credit limit. As you use the card for normal expenses like gas & groceries, paying it off monthly, they will increase your limit and eventually allow you to have unsecured credit.
4. You need at least 2 lines of new credit, in good shape to qualify for a mortgage. You can repeat step 3 down the road for a second card.
5. Save all the money you can. Build up an emergency fund and then more. Some of this will be your down payment once you're ready to buy. The more you can accumulate the better off you'll be.
6. Find your lender early. A great lender may help you with the credit rebuilding. They can help remove errors on your file quickly and boost your scores legitimately. Not all lenders do this, so ask around.
7. DO NOT close any personal accounts, pay off any old collections unless instructed by your lender or other legitimate credit repair person. Closing accounts & paying off old collections may lower your scores.
8. Any remaining joint credit accounts probably should be closed. If your ex spouse accesses a dormant account and runs up balances or pays late, you'll be hurt. It doesn't matter to the creditor that the judge gave you some accounts than them others. If they were once joint, the lender will report on both of you and you can be damaged without knowing it.
There is lots more, but this will get you started. Avoid "rent to own" as the vast majority are scams designed to separate you from your money.

Never heard of the scenario before.....banks loan and hold money for others. They are not in the business of owning property and being a landlord.

Sadly the rates are up to 29 mils here, which translates to 2900 per hundred thousand of appraised value. My 125k appraised home taxes are now up to ~$300/month. I'm selling my 3BR home at 3 White Road for 145k after 50k of improvements. ... more

James Goddard answered:
Railroad Square is another that is right there, depends of how much of a quality one you are looking for. There is another smaller cost effective one that is only a 1 minute walk at the top of the square also, but ones do not come on the market there very often. I lived in Keene for the last 3 years in the Wright Estates which is a condo development 2 miles from the center of town. If you are ok with that kind of distance, that is truly a great place.... ... more

You can contact any agent you like, it does not have to be from the same agency. I recommend that buyers to a bit of research, read agent profiles, meet with a few different agents and find the one that you are most comfortable working with and then move forward with looking at properties. Keep in mind that a listing agents priority is to work in the best interest of the seller, therefore, your interests will come second. For example, a listing agent is going to negotiate towards getting the highest price and best terms for the seller, while the buyer's agent is going to negotiate to get the lowest price and terms for the buyer. Good luck in your search! ... more

Absolutely! Keene is a city that continues to attract many due to its strong school system. As you mentioned, there are plenty of homes on the market that are in need of TLC. My suggestion would be to look for the homes that have features (that can't be changed) that will attract buyers. For example: location, the land plot, and neighborhoods. Please let me know if I can assist you in any way. ... more
