I am in the same boat at this time. We moved here from Nebraska, where I obtained my Housing Choice Voucher (Section 8, Housing etc) so I (ported) here and arrived on August 1st as everything was completed in NE. It has been rough to say the least. I had saved $9,000 for this trip and to relocate, and within this month, the funds have depleted, just from having somewhere to stay while I search for a place to rent. (I am 50 years old, have moved several times throughout my life, but have never had an experience like this).
It is myself, my mom, my 17 year old son, and my 11 year old daughter. He's a senior this year and my daughter is in 6th grade. My mom has been at Walmart for 17 years, and I am the Assistant Manager for Dollar Tree. So, we are employed full time, we both have a vehicle, I have my voucher, which is guaranteed money towards the rental amount of a unit, then we pay ours each month. However, here we are still, residing (temporarily) in a weekly motel. It is not in our targeted area, or where I'm looking to live, however it was the best deal at this point, after spending the last month in a room (paying $492.80 A WEEK).
I also haven't been back here (where I'm from) in 20 years, and a lot has changed. There's alot of homelessness & not so great areas, due to drug use and unemployed etc.
However, I will remain positive, and keep searching (it's been a full time job in itself) lol.
We are extremely clean, have integrity, reliable, pay our bills, hard working, and very good tenants and people.
I wish you the best. If you want more information, please let me know, I'd be glad to help, saving you some aggravation if possible.
On the other hand, if anyone has any useful information for me, or knows any places or resources that I may have overlooked, I welcome them and would greatly appreciate them all.

There are California Blue Ribbon schools in Long Beach too. They are ranked 9's and 10's. There are some really nice areas of LB. You should consider that as well.

All the best,

I like the Tanglewood development. It is close to shopping, great schools and freeways. The property grounds are well cared for and the neighborhood is very desirable. These townhomes range from 2 bed 1 baths to 4 bed 3 baths. Call me if you are still in the market and I will gladly take you on a tour of the properties available in that development.

Read my 2 blog postings here on Trulia called "RED FLAGS - RENTAL SCAMS - PUBLIC BEWARE", click on my profile to get to this.

Read this & your chances of NOT getting scammed will increase by 95% in my opinion. These scammers all speak the same way. "Sure you can have 8 dogs at the house, bad credit ok, you can rent for 3yrs, we can't show it to you right now, high call volume, we're out of town, but you can go peek into the windows, just send us a deposit & you can have it". Most of the time, they have very bad grammar skills & English being their second language is obvious.

How's your short sale coming along? Did it get approved yet?

Shoot me an email directly should you want to discuss this further. I don't look back on this same Trula posting for answers after mine.

Hi Ellen,

Under your account there is a section named "My Listings" Once you get to that page, there should be a "delete this listing" that you can click to delete your rental posting. I am assuming that you are utilizing Trulia's free rental listings vs. a paid advertisement through Trulia.

Congrats on getting your property rented. Hope this has been helpful!
