Kathy Burgreen answered:
Landlords can discriminate against pet owners because of insurance claims. You need to learn that landlords / property owners are required to have insurance and insurance companies write policies that prohibit any claims against animals. There are insurance policies that will accept pets but those policies cost more money. Therefore it's cheaper and easier for landlords not to accept pets.

You need to pay for the pet insurance premiums and show the insurance policy to landlords. Once they see you have pet insurance, any landlord will rent to you.

Hi Kathy,

Trulia only advertises properties for real estate agents.
Unfortunately, the website has become unreliable for inquiries so the best thing to do is pick up the phone and call for the information you need.
Trust me no agent is ignoring you...they are simply "not" being notified of your request!

Hope this helps!

K.

Rent to own is really not a good idea, therefore consider fixing whatever is preventing you from purchasing outright. Rent to own can be risky and one could stand to lose a bit of money, it favors the owner; therefore inform yourself well in advance of your search, and consider consulting with an attorney who specializes in real estate before considering the idea and or before signing any agreement. If you haven't done so yet, visit with any licensed loan officer, see if you can buy outright, or simply continue renting until a purchase can be made. ... more

Dan Tabit answered:
Stephanie,
If you're asking about Rentals, be careful. Rental scams are common here and on any site that allows the general public to post. Please be very cautious with deals that seem too good to be true. NEVER send money expecting keys back by mail. You can search the address in any search engine to see how the homes are advertised elsewhere. If one listing is much cheaper than other places, it's likely a scam.

Read the scam warning Trulia posts. I've attached a link to it below.

When you find a questionable listing please go to the More button on the listing and then hit the FLAG button on the listing page to warn Trulia and others or email it to Rentalfraud@Trulia.com.
