The reason Nicer Apartment complexes do not accept the section 8 vouchers, has to do with the the fact that people who rely on such assistance are thought to have a certain lower standard of living that is not desirous in the nicer neighborhoods. As bad as this sounds , it has happened. Years ago, I lived in what was then a very upscale apartment complex. Now over 20 years later, you don't want to go near this place after dark. As much as we would like to think it is a fallacy to think like this, there is some truth to it. ... more

Hello, LLCarter56,

As the Realtors noted below poor credit can be a stopping issue for a loan. And, as Phyllis said, Trulia is a resource for finding homes. Your first step should be to talk to a lender (possibly your current bank) and let them pull your credit to see just where it stands and then get some guidance as to what you need to do to clean it up so that you can be put into a situation where you will be able to buy a home. The lender will certainly be able to direct you on that, and then you can follow their directions to the letter. This way, when you get your credit cleaned up, you will be in the best position to be able to purchase a home. If you would like a referral to lenders that could assist you, please let me know and I would be happy to do so. And if you have any questions about buying a home in the area, please also let me know. Have a great day!

Rentals in Richmond are easiest to find on Craigs List. Richmond also has quite a few property management companies that you can find listed online. I would call them and have them email a list of properties currently available. This is August, not a good month to rent due to the large student population returning to Richmond and snapping up what is left of the rentals. If you are looking in the suburbs you will probably have an easier time of things. The internet is the best tool for doing this as there are many rental agencies with different properties. There is a lot of leg work involved and it is hard when you are from out of town. I would go with some of the bigger names in the business to be safe. There are many large apartment complexes outside the city. Inside the city you might want to look into the apartments at Tobacco Row, ... more

Richmond is a little different than most cities in that rentals are usually handled by companies that specialize in property management and not often listed with a Realtor in the MLS system. Some of the companies that I often see renting in the areas you seem most interested in are Snipes, Remax Commonwealth, RentInRichmond, and Pierce Arrow. The best thing to do is check Craigs List or Google Richmond Property Management Companies. Then go online to see if there are any reviews of these companies or buildings from tenants. Good luck! ... more

Rent to own for under $600 is hard to come by and investors in the area may grabs those up to purchase before you can even get a glance at them.

I would love to see what other avenues we can discuss. FHA financing only requires 3% down and VHDA loans can possibly get you to bring as little as $500 to table. (case by case bases).

Would you be interested in getting prequalified. Jeremy can also help with building your credit if that is the case. Either way, please call me I would love to speak with you to discuss all options. DONT GIVE UP! Home ownership is key:)

Depends on a number of factors. Price being the big one and location. Furnished condos tend to lease faster than unfurnished.

Hi May657,

I did a quick search in the computer system for rentals that match your criteria, but did not find an "exact" match in Henrico County. I did find a 3 bedroom, 1 bath home in the East Highland area (southeast of Lakeside and Chamberlayne) for $849. Not sure how quiet the home would be as it appears to back to railroad tracks.

Depending on how soon you are wanting to move, I can set up a search in the computer to notify us if anything more appropriate becomes available. Let me know if that would be helpful ...

Jen answered:
Hi Susan, I got your email with your number thank you! I'll try and give you a call tomorrow. The kids will be in school so I will have time to talk.:) My family is moving back to the Richmond area. I will be visiting the area the last weekend of this month. I will not be able to view anything until then. I look forward to talking to you soon. We are looking to rent for atleast a year. A lease to buy option would be great, provided we find the right house. We need at least a 3 bedroom and we also have a dog.

Best Regards,
