No, usually lenders frown upon that, property must be open to the general real estate market to get the best and highest bid.

Hello Liz,

While there may be thousands of homes on the market, some areas can be more in demand than others and therefore, offers may need to be more attractive.

Hi Jeri,

We have found that Craigslist is your best option for a rental. 85% to 95% of all rentals leased in San Diego County are found using Craigslist. It is used to advertise rentals by property owners, property management companies and agents alike. The rental listings are far more up to date than what you will find anywhere else.

Start your search by putting your preferred zip code in the search box and then enter the rest of your requirements, including the check boxes for pets if needed. There is also a pull down menu for the type of property you are seeking (apartment, house, etc) Check often and call/e-mail right away as many rentals move quickly.

Beware of rental scam listings and ads that "look too good to be true”. Make sure you talk to the person managing the property and meet them to see it. Scams usually involve people asking for a deposit in order to see the property. The "owner" usually states they live out of state or out of the country. Other scams involve people stealing pictures from homes for sale and then posting it as a rental with a low rental rate.

Best of luck to you,

Mark & Kari Shea

Hi Ixtsel
Please feel free to look into all the active Rentals in Chula Vista. Although $900.00 for rental is a bit low if you check the site from time to time you may be able to find it.

Jbarrett, Absolutely talk with a tax consultant...I can refer you to an excellent real estate attorney in San Diego if you choose to go that route. It may be a good idea because an attorney can draw up some iron clad documents that would protect both you and your parents. It would also "help" an underwriter justify and approve the reduction in principal on a "non-arms length" (buying from your parents or other interested parties). Paying a reasonable fee to a tax consultant or real estate attorney (or both) is well worth the money to get all your ducks in a row for successful financing and avoidance of any unnecessary tax consequences.

And, yes, a lender will need documentation showing that you have made the monthly payments consistently and on time. I would be happy to provide you any specific information, feel free to contact me via my profile. Best of luck!
