Hello Irma, the rentals in Sylmar start from $1,405 for 2bd 2ba apartment, $1,900 for 3bd 2.5ba condo and the single family homes start from $2,000 for 3bd 3ba home.

These links may assist you with crime statistics:

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 purchase start from 188k for 2bd 1ba single family home in Sylmar which is as low as $940 down payment with a minimum 580 fico score @188k.

You should study RENT vs BUY options as you may qualify to buy with minimum out of pocket expenses and pay less than rent in many cities. Your fico scores can be raised within 3-4 days in most cases to qualify for programs, rates and terms as necessary.

You may qualify to buy FHA with fico scores between 500-579 with 10% down or minimum 580 fico score may qualify FHA 3.5% down or as low as .5% half percent down payment program. You may consider 3% down conventional from a minimum 620 fico score.

You will need to be pre-approved if you decide to buy to be able to meet an agent to view and submit offers on any homes of your choice. Your qualifications will be determined by your credit profile, debt to income ratios, fico scores, home price, loan program and how much you want to invest into the down payment and closing costs.

It only takes a few dozen questions to qualify, go over your options and email you listings to study and compare. Here are some links to study as well as web reference links to many loan program pages offered...

Yogaworks is very close by on Green st. I live in the San Rafael Hills neighborhood and often walk to that area (just before Old Town) and in to Old Town on the weekends when we can take our time.
If you are looking for an agent for this neighborhood who knows it well, Please give me a call. I would love to help. I have lived in the San Rafael Hills neighborhood for over 15 years and walk it daily.

To the right of that listing there is an area where the person who posted the listing can be contacted by email or phone. The listing says nothing about pets. Your best bet is to contact the person who pasted the ad directly.

All the best,

Be aware that many scams do exist and you may have stumbled upon one. If you choose not to work with an agent of your own always verify ownership before exchanging any money/personal information--make certain they are who they claim to be. Never wire any money, if it sounds to good to be true, it is. For scam related information see links.…

Shel-lee Davis answered:
A HUD home means that the property is owned by HUD. This usually happens when the prior owner defaulted on an FHA loan.

An unspecified property means they are not sure what type of home is listed. This often happens when a manufactured home is affixed to a permanent foundation.

All that being said, this property is not currently showing on the HUD site as available for sale. It is also not showing on the MLS as available for sale. So beware.

If you are looking for a great deal in Canyon Country, your best bet is to work with a reputable realtor in that area. They will keep you from being scammed.

Kathleen Becker answered:
First off...for that house to be for rent for the amount of $875 is very unlikely and this listing is most likely a scam.

You would be about a 20 to 30 minute drive to the beach. This property is located inland in the USC area.

Good luck!
