Depending on your specific requirements $1500 isn't out of the question. However, these are some of the more desirable neighborhoods so it would be helpful to know what your needs are such as how many bedrooms, baths, and so forth. Typically I've seen Realtors charge a flat fee when providing assistance for a rental which is paid by the renter. It is possible that property owners will pay a referral bonus a Realtor however this is more common in the larger apartment complexes and almost never when dealing with single family homes. Please feel free to reach out to me if you have any additional questions. ... more

More than likely the "rental listing" is a scam

Is there an agent listed?

If the price seems too good to be true, that's because it isn't true.

Be wary of these kinds of listings............if you pursue this, I am sure you would be told the landlord is "out of the area" and therefore cannot show you the home in person........they will eventually ask you to fill out an application (with personal information) ..... and ask you to wire money for keys.

DO NOT DO THAT!

Work with an agent who can verify you're dealing with the legitimate owner.

If you saw that listing here, on Trulia, you can click on "FLAG" under the listing and report it as potentially fraudulent.
Trulia will verify and remove it.

Best wishes...........

Hi Rediane,

Pet friendly rentals are tough to find. Craigs list is a good place to look. Have you considered a purchase? Many people find that they can own for about the same monthly payment as renting. There are a lot more purchase options and no one tells you you can't have pets. :)

I'd love to talk with you about a $5000 grant for down payment and closing costs that is available now.

Regards,

Hi Sasha,
If you are looking for a rental, craigs list is a great place to start. If you want to consider a purchase, I have great lenders that could help you get qualified for a loan. I'd also love to talk to you about a $5000 grant for down payment and closing costs that you may qualify for.

First this depends on your definition of a a "nice" neighborhood. As a realtor I am not allowed to have an opinion. As a property manager I manage properties all over central ohio and manage many Section 8 units. Based on my experience, I can tell you that most homes in the suburbs don't participate in the voucher program for many reasons. Here are a few. Most of the time the voucher will not pay enough to make it profitable, or section 8 will not pay what the owner is asking. Generally there is also more maintenance involved with a section 8 property. There is also a stigma against people on that program which makes many landlords not want to deal with them. Most landlords with a desirable property find it easier to find a tenant who pays their own rent and are therefore more accountable for the property, damages, and rent issues. ... more

Eugene, I would look on Craigslist for any private owners that may be willing to rent. Be careful though, if something sounds "too good", it could be a con. Feel free to contact an agent to assist you! I just closed on a HUD house in that area for only $54,000 so there are some deals out there and if you can not buy right now, there are some rentals out there! Be careful and good luck. ... more

You may want to check into a rent to own or lease option if you have cash to place down in advance. You can usually get a home with a good deposit and repair your credit over the next few month in order to secure financing in the next 12-24 months. This will place you back in a home ownership role vs. a rental situation.

Feel free to send me an email or call me for details.

The problem with condo and townhome rentals is the HOA normally has restrictions on pets. For a house the owner would need to notify their insurance carrier that the have pit bulls at the property and they may get a notification of cancelation of insurance. ... more

Have you checked with the urban housing league? Sometimes they can put you in touch with homes available to rent with vouchers.
