If you are looking to rent but will not be out of your current lease until September of this year - it is too early to start looking. Probably late July would be a better time to see what is available in the market place. If you think your credit will improve and you may be looking to buy at that time, then the best thing to do is work with a lender on repairing your credit and being ready to buy in a few months.I have some lenders I can refer you to to help if that is the case. You can reach me at email@example.com
One of the first things to do in the home buying process is to get perapproved for a loan. I have several good lenders that can help you get preapproved. This is important because it will let us know what type of home you can purchase. I can be reached by email at firstname.lastname@example.org
I look forward to helping you.
