Hi Dominique,

Best bet is to check on Craigslist or Rent.com. You can also place an ad on CL if you like and hopefully homeowners may contact you. Just be careful when dealing on internet to avoid scammers.

Take care.

Thank you for your question Brooke:

Yes as Sheryl pointed out there are a number of rental scams that are designed either to steal your Identity or steal your deposit money.

These rental scams use ads for properties to rent at ridiculously low rents. When people call on the advertisement they often give up enough information about themselves that their identification can be stolen, or they send in a deposit for the property for rent.

The best protection against this scam is to make certain that the person that you are dealing with has a California Real Estate License. I recommend that when you call on one of these advertisements, that you ask the person for their real estate license number. Then contact the California Department of Real Estate at www.dre.ca.gov Click on the line that says "verify license" Type in the license number and see if it is a valid current license number and who it belongs to.

If the person that you are talking to does not have a valid California real estate license, it is probably a scam designed to steal your identity or your deposit money..

It is a tough real estate market for both buyers and renters. I suggest you contact a property manager if you do not have a current print out of your credit report a property manager can get one for you. Or you can get a free one on line. Once you know this you will be able to communicate your credit to potential landlords.

Craigslist has the most rentals listed in one place. Keep in mind they also have scammers. So you will want to talk to a real person before giving any of your personal information.

Persistance will be needed.

All the best to you.

Thank you for your question Sandra:

Unfortunately the rents here in the San Jose area are much higher than your budget of $1,300 per month.

If you saw an advertisement for a property of the type that you describe for $1,300 per month, in the San Jose area, it was probably a scam designed to steal your deposit money or to steal your identity

For more information, you can call me at my cell phone: (4080509-6218

If the home gets foreclosed on, eventually an agent will come to you with a cash for keys offer to get out. Or in the time between then and now you could employ the help of a title company and possibly a real event to do some homework for you.

Hi Kim:

If you're looking for upscale, you might consider checking out rental.com. The larger apartment complexes routinely post their available homes for rent here on this site and will provide pictures and plenty of detail regarding the amenities in the community.

Because most of these larger communities are owned by corporations and managed by private, in-house management staff, the listings for rental units are seldom made available to realtors. You can also check for rental units at the public portal of the MLS (multiple listing service) at www.mlslistings.com.

Good luck!

Sincerely,
Grace Morioka

Landlords generally either love or hate Section 8 tenants. You're apparently running into the latter.

What you have to do is show them: (1) the benefits of Section 8 from their standpoint, and (2) that you'll be a model tenant. ... more

Rohamil -

I would subscribe to the Willow Glen Neighborhood list. This will find you a home in Willow Glen faster than Craigs List. Amazing insider scoop.

Grace Hanamoto answered:
Hello Tommy and thanks for your post.

So, here's what happened to me...I purchased a home with an FHA loan, and because I prefer to have all of my bills sent to my PO Box rather than my home for payment, I called the lender and asked to have the billing information changed to the PO box address from the home address. I was quickly reminded by customer service that I must live in the home, and may not rent the property. I was actually surprised that anyone really cared whether I lived in the home or not, but apparently, they do, so I left the billing address as the home address for now.

When I talked with my colleague and mortgage broker about this, he commented that FHA lenders are being extra careful to follow all of the lending guidelines, so it is certainly conceivable that lenders will be watching for changes of address or other signals that might indicate that the owner's ability to pay might in some way be jeopardized. A change of billing address is the first and most obvious sign that the owner has moved from the property, and the second--in your case--would be confirmation from the homeowners association that you no longer live at the home.

As I understand it, there are certainly circumstances under which you can move from the property and rent it out, but these circumstances almost always involve a "hardship" that makes moving a necessity (such as being transferred by your employer to another location or losing your job and find another one in another city)

Since we're both very lucky to have received loans to purchase our homes, I would suggest not tempting fate by violating any of the terms of your loan agreement at this time. Although your lender may never check to see if you moved out of the residence, keep in mind that if the lender does find that you've violated any of the loan provisions, the lender can accelerate your loan payments (make you pay for everything at one time) or, in the extreme, foreclose--neither option is, in my opinion, worth the risk.

My suggestion is that you enjoy your home for now, and look to a refinance out of an FHA loan at a later date if you still wish to rent.

Good luck!

Sincerely,
Grace Morioka, SRES, e-Pro
