There are homeowners out there who does not check rental history and you may still be able to rent. Even if they check and it's settled they have a possibilty of renting to you. I would suggest trying to find a reputable real estate rental company and be careful on Craigslist.

If you are trying to rent an apartment, again some are ok with it and some may not. You can always ask questions before putting in an application and paying the application fee.

Good Luck

Hi Jay,

One of my lending partners does work with hard money and private lenders. Contact me and I will put you in contact with him.

If you need help with credit repair issues I do have a proven service partner that can help you with that too so that you can avoid the high rates and short mortgage terms associated with hard money lending.

Hi janigal,

There are no "stupid questions...." actually, this is a good one....

There are many terms in real estate that are confusing....there can be several different terms that actually define the same type of subject property. With this said, "apartment" is a term generally associated with rental units while condo may imply ownership. On the other hand, condos can be rented as well.

If you are buying, you should probably focus your attention on listings that are shown as condos, villas, or townhomes.

Good luck,

Marc Grossman answered:

I'm not sure exactly which unit you may be referring to, but from the numbers you are giving, I can only gather that it might be bldg 823. That particular unit is not for sale at the present time.

I'm quite familiar with this complex, as a customer just closed on a unit here. Presently, there are 13 condos available for sale starting at $44K for a 1 bedroom unit. The unit # 203 that you are referring to is generally a 3 bedroom condo. There are currently 5 of those available.

Contact me and I'll be more than happy to further assist you with your questions in regard to Crescent Place.

Looking forward to hearing from you.

Best Regards,

Since the definition of "a lot" is relative, you should check with your local police department to look up recent crime statistics for the area.

Edith Karoline Jasser answered:
why not working with a local experienced Realtor in your area who can provide you with all the details you need to know to make an educated decision, not only on what property to buy, but also what to offer for it, based on the agent's market evaluation.....

I am not a Broker in your area, but when I see a question like yours, then I always wonder why a Buyer anywhere is not working with an experienced local Realtor, a Buyers Agent, one who will work on behalf and in the very BEST interest of the Buyer, not only finding the properties, showing them, but also getting the Buyers pre-approved by a lender, so that they will buy within their limits and comfort zone, but there are so many details to pay attention to like the various terms of the offer, negotiations with the Seller, earnest moneys, inspection, appraisal issues, walk thru, estimates for repairs,
market analysis for a property so that it will be a competitive offer and sooooo much more.

Buyers Agents are usually if the property is listed on the multiple listing services i.e. listed by a real estate company/brokerage paid by the Seller's side at the closing out of the Seller's proceeds, i.e.
the Buyers Agents services are free to you the Buyer, but your commitment and loyalty to one Buyers Agent will be required....

Give this some thought, as the questions as you ask them above, your Buyers Agent will be able to get you, and more than that also what the assessments cover, as this is different for each condo.

Do not do this on your own..... For your protection.

John Bennett answered:
I live in Altamonte. Trulia has about 20 % of what is on market. The only data base that is current is our MLS, where one can find about 98% of what is on market. This data base is updated by the minute. As a Buyer you pay no commissions as the seller agent will share with the buyer agent his commission.

You can go to my web site


and use the MLS data base, for free.

If I can be of help let me know.

We would agree that knowing monthly fees is every bit as important as knowing a property's taxes and people such as yourself need this information. Many others have questioned this before you. Thank you for once again bringing this to the attention of trulia.

Alma Kee answered:

above is a link to 18 "rentals" $800 or less.

Just be very careful if you decide to rent from an individual owner because many are in preforeclosure status and you may have to allow Realtors to Show to prospective short sale buyers. It's not fun having strangers trapse through... Also a distressed owner may not return your deposit money or not have money to make needed repairs.

It may be less risky to rent in a complex until you are in a position to be an owner.

If you have verifiable income and sufficient credit score (620 minimum) and are a first time homebuyer, you may be able to get up to $7,500 from the State of Florida bond program to become an "owner":

If your credit history or score is preventing you from getting a mortgage, you might also try a credit union NACA:

Just make sure to select your Realtor and have her sign you up on the NACA website or she'll have to pay NACA a large "referral" fee.

All the best,
Alma Kee
