If you can prove to landlords that you are working on improving your credit score and paying bills on time, you should find a landlord willing to accept you. You may also need to pay additional money upfront as security so a landlord will have the rent money in advance.
Bottom line: landlords need a guarantee that you will pay the rent on time every month. Prove it in writing with paid bills and no late charges on the bills.

A house should no longer be listed on once it's officially under contract. It won't say pending and it certainly won't be "sold" until the sale completely closes. "Off the market" is exactly what I'd expect to see once the buyer and seller are locked into a contract.

Do you have a dedicated agent? Are they networking to try and find you a "coming soon"? Do they work the estate sale circuit for leads? In a competitive market, you have to do more than just wait for homes to be active in the MLS. You need a good agent who is working hard to find you homes before they are active listings.

You also need to start being prepared to write offers over list price as soon as they are active. Or you can wait until things slow down a bit if you don't have to buy right now. It's definitely still a seller's market where I am but you can start to see the tide turning just a bit now.

When it comes to any safety/crime related issues, it's always best to contact the local police department with all your questions, hear all there is to hear firsthand. If unfamiliar with the area(s) do revisit more than once and at different times of day, possibly chat with locals/neighbors. Real estate professionals are prohibited from steering, enticing a buyer to purchase/rent, or not, in specific neighborhoods.

There is a six month redemption period in Michigan. They can list it till after that period and may still have to evict the previous owner.

Send me a list of what you are looking for and I will find it.

Good Afternoon!! As you have been made aware credit scores are important in getting a mortgage. it would depend on the purchase price of the property when determining if a 25K down payment would help. If you need the recommendation of a mortgage lender I would be happy to assist.

Have a good day!!
