Hello Irma, the rentals in Sylmar start from $1,405 for 2bd 2ba apartment, $1,900 for 3bd 2.5ba condo and the single family homes start from $2,000 for 3bd 3ba home.

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 you can be emailed listings to fit your search criteria. Your email address is needed to set you up for the automatic daily updates.

The purchase start from 188k for 2bd 1ba single family home in Sylmar which is as low as $940 down payment with a minimum 580 fico score @188k.

You should study RENT vs BUY options as you may qualify to buy with minimum out of pocket expenses and pay less than rent in many cities. Your fico scores can be raised within 3-4 days in most cases to qualify for programs, rates and terms as necessary.

You may qualify to buy FHA with fico scores between 500-579 with 10% down or minimum 580 fico score may qualify FHA 3.5% down or as low as .5% half percent down payment program. You may consider 3% down conventional from a minimum 620 fico score.

You will need to be pre-approved if you decide to buy to be able to meet an agent to view and submit offers on any homes of your choice. Your qualifications will be determined by your credit profile, debt to income ratios, fico scores, home price, loan program and how much you want to invest into the down payment and closing costs.

It only takes a few dozen questions to qualify, go over your options and email you listings to study and compare. Here are some links to study as well as web reference links to many loan program pages offered...

Sylmar is as safe as you want it to be. I've lived in Sylmar now going on 9 years and I have never experienced any problems. I have lived in a few cities through out my life and I have never felt the way I feel here in Sylmar, Sylmar feels like home, I don't know how else to explain it but I feel so much at home here. The only thing I would say is that we need more family restaurants. ... more
