Hi Essam,

Here are some homes which may fit your criteria, though I recommend that you follow up with their agents to ask about your Section 8 voucher.

Good luck with your search!

Umchetz,

3 bedroom rentals vary in all of those different areas. You'd probably be lookg at anywhere from $1700-$2800/month for decent 3 bedroom rentals in those areas (Matthews will be on the lower end).

Let me know if I can help!

Carlos,

Your question on the Olde Whitehall area of Charlotte is a centrally located place in the southwestern end of Charlotte. it has easy access to highways and major roads as well as shopping and getting just about anything you need.

In terms of answering your question about it beign loud, party area nd the crime rate...well that is a differnet story for a Realtor to answer. We are bound by Fair housing laws and a code of Ethics which preclude us from steering soemone toward a specific neighborhood or away from a specific neghborhood based on race, color, religion, famil status, national origin and handicap. A violation of this can cause a Realtor to lose their liscence forever and face federal charges.

What we can do as Realors is help you find information to help with your descsion and direct you to various website links or suggest where to look to find out the information so you can make a descsion that is best for you...beucase in addition to what the Fair Housing law states one person interpretation of what is safe and loud party area may not be what anotehr one thinks....

for the cirme date I always recommend my clients go to the Charlotte mecklenburg police website. it is http://charmeck.org/city/charlotte/CMPD/Pages/default.aspx From there click on the link on the top toolbar for for your safety and the sublink for crime mapping. Follow the directions and put in the address fo any house you are interested in and it will pull up the cirmes in that area by distance.

Another thing I have done in the past when i moved to places i was unfamiliar with was go through the neighborhood at differnet times of the day and see what it was like and get out and talk to neighbors and see what they think of the neighborhood...

I hope this hleps you and I wish you the best of luck with your move.

cllpt86,

Just becuase you are receiving social security as your primary source of income does not preclude you from owning a home. As long as you qualify and the payments are affordable you can own your own home...

Where I think it will be difficult is the section 8 voucher. That is not considered allowable income when you try to qualify for a mortgage and most banks will not even consider you for a mortgage as long as you are receiving it.... The genral consensus is that you need to ehlpe to comfortably afford your monthly rent how would you be able to not only afford the home but the maintenance that goes with the up keep of a house?

i do not want to sound as this is bad... But, given your circumstances as you have explained them you are going to find it difficult for soemone to rent to you with the option to buy; if they feel you will nto be bale to maintain the property inaddition ot the payments.

Hi Christina! Your best bet may be to check Craigslist at different times during the day, as landlords post rentals all throuhgout the day. You should also check the websites of the area's largest property managers. Here are three:

TR Lawing - www.TRLawing.com
Henderson Properties - www.HendersonProperties.com
Meca Properties - www.Meca.com

You can also use my user-friendly website, www.BuyAHomeInCharlotte to search for rentals available through our MLS. You can simply narrow your search to just townhomes & houses in the Pineville/Matthews area in the $825- $850 range.

Good luck with your search!

Reeni,

that is going to be up to the individual you are looking to rent from. I know from experience most apartment complexes require proof of employment so they know you can afford the apartment. Managemetn compaines are going to require the same thing unless you have a great stopry to tell them and then it will be very difficult to get soemoen to potentially rent to you.

I have seentti done in the past and helped a girlfriend of my wife in such a situation when she was getting divorced and looking for a job. But we went through probably 5 or 6 places before we found one to rent to us.

Be upfront and have a copy of your credit report can help.....

Hello Sherber1979!

Congrats on making Charlotte your new home. You aren't too far from us now so hopefully that transition will not be too tough. I would love to assist you in your relocation. If you could email me with some details on location, price, etc, that would be wonderful. I have several Investor Clients who have lots of Rental Property in Charlotte and surrounding so we may have a source there. The market has definitely picked up so not alot of Inventory but I am sure we can find something that suits your needs!

Best,
Debbie

Hi Sussie
If you take your home buying process in steps and have those steps in the right order you substantially improve your prospects. The first is to find an experienced ethical loan officer you can trust. Than determine the loan that will best serve you and the monthly payment you can handle. Than you will have a purchase price to research your market. Than obtain a list of every house for sale in your price range in the area you would like to live in and at least drive by every one of them. Than have your agent show you the best ones. With this process you will learn your market and it will not be necessary to rely on anyones opinion of value. Go to Your-Road-Home.com and you will find a step by step process that will serve you well. The articles are the seminar that 25,0000 first time home buyers have attended. The articles are numbered to help clarify the proceedure. Read all of them and you will become one savvy home owner. Most importantly find experienced ethical people to work for you that you can trust. The site outlines a very specific process for finding and indentifying those people. Good Luck. Owning a home will change your life, for the better. Stephen Webber. Your-Road-Home.com ... more

Try Keeneland neighborhood. There are a few rentals in that neighborhood. It is pretty safe and has a good crime watch.
