you don't truly own condos, you just have the right to do what you want with a partial set of rooms in a building that's owned by a landlord

In San Diego I'm sure you have a local MLS so at least it'll be easy to make sure you're being listed in the correct broker database!

In NYC it's not as simple, you'll quickly realize that there is no "MLS" as the local broker association REBNY left NAR long ago. So the agents here aren't "Realtors."

As a result, the most important thing about choosing a flat fee listing in NYC is to make sure you're actually getting exposure to the RLS - REBNY Listing Service, which is operated by REBNY.

Second, I highly recommend working with a traditional broker who discreetly agrees to give you a discount, or perhaps a friend broker who will list your place. Barring that, there are companies like Hauseit which will pair you up with a traditional broker for a flat fee who will list your home in the RLS and mix your listings in with their normal listings.

I've done a comprehensive review of all For Sale By Owner websites in NYC at my blog which is linked below. Please let me know if you agree!

Either call your homeowners insurance company to file a claim and give you money to fix it or use your savings to fix it. There is nothing anybody can do online to help you.

Sheryl Arndt answered:
Hello Geena84vidz, how old is it and is it a judgment? You most likely will have to have additional deposits to secure a rental. You should also study RENT vs BUY listings to compare payments. You may qualify to buy with minimal out of pocket expense with down payment and closing cost assistance programs.

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 would need to be in payment arrangements for three months before you could consider FHA financing. You may consider FHA 3.5% down from a minimum 580 fico score and minimum 640 fico score for down payment and closing cost assistance programs.

The rentals can be found in websites like this one or Zillow or You should check with local rental management companies for their inventory as well. The rentals in San Diego start from $675 for studio apt and up. There are 10 available under 1k monthly to call and check what they say.

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 and you can be emailed listings to fit your search criteria. Good luck.
