Karen Peyton answered:
It will be difficult to find a short term rental since this is what we call "snow-bird season." Have you considered Airbnb? You might be able to find a good match given your situation. Another option is asking for "leads" from the employer offering the internship. Assuming you are not their first intern, they may be of great assistance and/or have an employee intra-net with ads relative to short term housing.

Good luck and Congratulations on becoming a Dad!

Rent, deposits, and fees will vary from one property to another. For that reason you will have to inquire and compare them individually.

If you haven't already, try Craigslist. Most ma and pa companies will use some form of income and credit criteria to approve rental applicants.

Though I don't know him personally, I know "of" someone who works exclusively with churches.
Contact me through Trulia, and write CHURCH in the subject line. I'll respond with his name and number.

I'd like to help but don't know what "cbr" means. Maybe I'm not alone and that is the reason no one has answered thus far.

If you mean "credit bureau rating or reporting," banks typically like lots of money for a down payment so unless they won't lend for land, it doesn't make sense unless your credit is poor.

If that's not what you mean and your credit is good, I suggest buying a house instead of a lot. You will only need more money to build, and "asap" implies urgency, not a wait of a year or more until a house is finished.

Kathy Burgreen answered:
You should be fine. Hopefully you don't have pets since many landlords do not allow pets because of insurance restrictions. The only difficulty you may find is most realtors prefer to work with buyers and sellers - not renters. The issue is the commission for rentals is small. Realtors can make more money buying and selling homes for clients. Yes it's called greedy realtors. ... more

You typify a person "getting on with it" despite your circumstances. Good for you! On the other hand, your fiance's broken lease is the gift that will keep on giving until he goes back and makes amends by settling the debt or paying the judgement. You cannot avoid this without "dooming" yourselves to poor living conditions for years into the future.

I'll assume your question is about proving the bedbugs or roaches were in the apartment when you moved in. If so, make sure you get a "Move-In Inspection" checklist to make note of the bugs and return it to the landlord in the time required. Of course you will keep a copy for yourself, and as an added measure take photos with your phone and email them to yourself to "date stamp" the problem.

Again, your fiance' will have to go back to move forward.

Best of luck!!

It's god that you have still time to choose the best place to stay. It's strange to me why don't you using Trulia for this purposes, but with this site, you can overcome your eviction and credit report because of bidding system, that allows catching landlord's attention with the additional 100-200$. Maybe it will be a solution in your situation. ... more
