It's a scam. I looked up the address on Zillow and the last entry under the Price and Tax History states it was last rented in Nov. 2011 for $2,300./month. It has not been rented or listed for sale since 2011.

Do yourself a favor. NEVER send any documents or money before visiting the rental in person. The owner / landlord / property manager should open the door with a key and show you the rental in person before signing a lease and asking for money. The only thing you need to fill out upfront is the rental application and pay the application fee.

Hello Jan, you should check with the local rental management companies. If you figure out what cities/zip codes you are considering, minimum number of bedrooms and the maximum payment/price you are looking to achieve you can be emailed listings to fit your search criteria. Your email address is needed to set you up for the automatic daily updates.

The rentals in West Covina start from $1,200 and up, Baldwin Park start from $1,350, Monrovia from $1,395, El Monte from $1,053. Agents use http://www.Realtor.com as the listings there are directly from us agents.

If you have had Section 8 for one year you may even qualify to buy with Section 8 Homeownership program so check with your case worker and if you do I do the loans.

You should study RENT vs BUY options as you may qualify to buy and pay less than rent in many local cities. You may qualify to buy with minimum out of pocket expenses and pay less than rent.

Beware of the many rental scams out there these days on all sites. The scams are on all of the rental listing sites except one that us agents/broker use such as mls, multiple listing service.

You should not give anyone any funds or personal information without confirming with a licensed agent/broker or management company to find out whom you should be dealing with and the status of any address of interest.

If you decide you want to buy you will need to be pre-approved to be able to meet an agent to view and submit offers on any homes of your choice. You will need to gather some documentation for each applicant.

Your qualifications will be determined by your credit profile, debt to income ratios, fico scores, loan program and how much you want to invest into the down payment and closing costs. Your fico scores can be raised within 3-4 days in most cases to qualify for programs, rates and terms as necessary.

If you are buying a primary residence you could consider a down payment assistance program such as CalHFA or Sapphire Grant which can cover your down payment and closing costs. You may close with minimal out of pocket expenses. You may consider the CalHFA from a minimum 640 fico score and the Sapphire Grant from a minimum 620 fico score up to 424k.

You may qualify FHA from fico scores between 500-579 with 10% down or minimum 580 fico score may qualify FHA 3.5% down up to 424k. You may consider 3% down conventional from a minimum 620 fico score or even 5% down conventional with NO Mortgage insurance (Lender paid MI) up to 424k.
