My credit is HORRIBLE but I have stable employment (4 yrs) & a great rental history, I'm looking around the 100th Ave & Indian School

area. Would it be possible to find a seller that perhaps hasn't been successful with selling their property to lease it to me? I really like the condos in that area

I'm not looking to purchase a home currently just rent..I'm looking to relocate mid/end July and I'm in need of a 2bed / 2bath at least 1000sq ft place with all appliances included including a washer/dryer, I promised my son (11) that I would try to find something with a pool so that would be a plus also.

Renting shouldn't be a problem. Most landlords will rent to people with "horrible" credit. Having said that they will probably still want to review your credit and may have questions for you.

One option that might work for you is to find a seller financing home. These are homes that the seller is offering to finance. So, instead of getting a regular mortgage through a lender. You get a mortgage through the seller.

Call if you would like to discuss this option or have any further questions.

Good luck.

Have you considered a Lease Option scenario? This can put you into a home while assisting you in repairing your credit and working towards home ownership. There are programs that can move you in for NO money down and no up-front option fees.
