Hello Rachelle, the rentals in Irvine start from $1,350 for a studio condo, $1,499 for 1bd 1ba condo, $1,900 for 2bd 2ba condo, $2,400 for 3bdf 2ba condo and the single family homes start from $2,400 for 2bd 2ba home.

The purchase in Irvine start from 233k for 1bd 1ba condo. You may qualify to buy with minimum out of pocket expenses which would be less than first, last and security of rentals...

I don't do rentals but will give you the contact information to call and go directly to any of interest. 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.

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 to buy you will need to be pre-approved to be able to meet an agent to submit offers on homes of your choice. You will need to gather documentation such as one month paystubs, two month bank statements, last two year tax returns, 1040's, 1099's, W2's and all schedules, copies of drivers license/ID and social security card 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.

You may qualify FHA from fico scores between 500-579 with 10% down or minimum 580 fico score may qualify FHA 3.5% down. You may consider a 3%-5% Sapphire Grant down payment program up to 417k from a minimum 620 fico score which does not have to be repaid.

Your fico scores can be raised within 3-4 days in most cases to qualify for programs, rates and terms as necessary.

It only takes a few dozen questions to qualify, go over your options and email you listings to study and consider. Here are some links to study about me as well as web reference links to many loan programs...

It doesn't look like there are any apartment complexes which have dePortola as the home school, after the boundary change. Vista Del Lago used to be the only complex but now it�39;s home school is in North Mission Viejo. There are some condos off Marguerite, near Oso that have Linda Vista school as the home school. If you have a child in the GATE program, you can request to go to dePortola because Linda Vista doesn't have the GATE program.

Your next option could be to lease a house in the dePortola boundary. You will need to stay between LaPaz, Marguerite, and Chrisanta. The housing tracts are LaPaz, Deane and some Madrid.

My kids went to dePortola, now I have my last one at Mission HS. Let me know if you need any further help. I sell and lease a lot in the neighborhood, so i usually get word of properties coming on the market as a lease before it hits the public.
