Only real estate professionals can list on Trulia. Try Zillow.

This is a very common scam that has been around for several years. Always be careful when looking for rentals online. Do not send money, especially via a service like MoneyGram, which lets people on the receiving end pick up the money at multiple locations. Also do not go to see rentals alone unless you have good reason to really trust the person who will show it to you. Never give out financial or personal information. And Craigslist says, "Refuse background/credit checks until you have met landlord/employer in person." In fact, Craigslist has good advice about avoiding all kinds of scams at the page below.

While trulia is a good place to start, you may not want to limit your choice to whomever sees your question. If you haven't found an agent respond directly to your query, I would recommend that you look online at various established agencies, view agent bios and pick one to contact. They will be able to send you any properties that conform to your criteria. Generally there is a multiple listing service that can allow agents to see whatever comes to market that is in your criteria. They can also set you up with an auto email on a weekly basis so you can monitor also. With rentals, they come and go quickly so whatever is available one week, may be totally different from what is available the next. With Spring coming, there should be a larger selection in the coming months. ... more

As Jean mentioned, Trulia doesn't allow FSBO listings. However, I'd love to know more about your property! I have several buyers looking in the Longmont area and there's not much on the market for them. Please email me directly at:

Dan Tabit answered:
As a minor you can't sign a legally binding contract. Your parents would have to sign on your behalf and be responsible for the rent as much as if they were living there. Your roommates, being over 18 will need to satisfy the landlords credit and background checks and individually sign on the lease.
Because your arrangement is unusual, you may find some resistance or many questions. Don't take this personally. 16 year olds are typically away from their families like this so it will raise some questions.

Raven & Alec answered:
I have been living in Longmont for about two years and am currently searching in the same price range. It is very tough, but there are a few houses up for rent that fall in that range. Unfortunately, not only do they go very, very fast, but it is difficult to find anywhere that will allow more than a single pet. In addition, most of the available jobs in central Longmont are not the best (such as serving, retail, etc.). If you are unable to find a better job, widening your criteria to include surrounding cities might be necessary (as April said.) I wish you all the luck in the world! ... more

April makes an excellent point. Shop the neighborhoods first, research the schools and then talk to a Realtor who work hard to find you that beautiful home!

If you are renting a home from the property owner I can't imagine where it would be in your (or the Landlords) best interest to extend a lease term that covers you until death. That would not be a specific amount of time which is required with a lease. And under the terms of any lease you are not protected from eviction unless you comply with all the terms of the lease including paying the rent on time. Consider purchasing where you can call the shots! ... more
