Real estate websites are not your best solution. Trulia, Zillow, etc. cater to the average tenant who does not need special features in rentals. You need to contact some realtors and ask them to assist you. Since many realtors prefer to work with buyers and sellers than rentals, visit some brokerages in person and ask to speak with the Office Manager or Broker in Charge. Then ask to work with one of their new licensed agents. Typically, most new licensed agents will work with rentals until they get enough experience and clients, then they switch to buyers and sellers.

Another solution is try going thru advocacy groups or organizations. These non profits know of housing that will fit your criteria. If you find a local chapter, call or email them. There are several that deal with physical limitations.

As a former realtor, i know that with rental buildings, the developers typically only need a few handicap apartments to comply with the city giving them grants or tax breaks and the rest of the building is for mobile tenants.

A felony is not a protected category under the Fair Housing law, so landlords can legally discriminate against felons no matter how long ago the felony occurred.

Frank S. answered:
Hello Cliff, why no credit check? Do you have credit issues, low fico scores or evictions? You may be able to secure a rental with no credit check with additional months deposits. You should study RENT vs BUY listings to compare payments and qualifications.

How much do you currently pay, and how many bedrooms and what is the maximum payment you are looking to afford?

You may qualify to buy and pay less than rent in Las Vegas. The 3bd 2ba single family homes with two car garages start from $1,350 monthly rent and from 136k for purchase. Check out the web reference link below...

It depends on each landlord/owner and your own credit issue, eviction, etc. It may be easier to qualify to buy than rent. You may be required to put down additional deposits to secure a rental. Most want first, last and security.

You should study RENT vs BUY listings to compare payments and qualifications. You may qualify to buy and pay less than rent in Las Vegas NV.

If you have lower fico scores between 500-579 you may consider 10% down FHA and a minimum 580 fico score may consider 3.5% down FHA. You may consider 3% down conventional from a minimum 620 fico score.

If you figure out what cities/zip codes you are considering, minimum number of bedrooms and the maximum payment you are looking to afford and you can be emailed listings to fit your search criteria.

The rentals in Vegas start from $450 for 1bd 1ba no pets, from $495 for 2bd 1ba condo and the single family homes start from $695 for 3bd 1ba home.

The purchase in Vegas start from 29k-39k for 1bd 1ba condos, from 43k for 2bd 1ba condo, from 73k for 3bd 2ba condo and the single family homes start from 105k for 2bd 1ba home. Check out the web reference link below...

Frank S. answered:
You may find it easier to qualify to buy than rent. Do the evictions show up as judgements? If so you would have to be in payment arrangements for 3 months to be able to consider FHA financing.

You may qualify FHA with fico scores from 500-579 with 10% down and minimum 580 fico score may qualify for FHA 3.5% down. Your credit scores can be raised usually within 3-4 days in most cases to qualify for programs, rates and terms as necessary.

You will be homeless or in a bad are the correct answers. Unless you find an individual owner to work with you. Everything else is practically impossible.
