Carla Pennington answered:
I don't know about your area, but in ours any realtor who subscribes to the leasing portion of the MLS (not all do) can search for Section 8 housing. You can call any brokerage and ask for an agent who handles lease properties, and they should be able to help you locally. ... more

I'm thinking you have a typo there with a 17,000 square foot home, maybe you meant 1,700?. CA is not known for cheap rents but I've seen many posts where relocating to another state makes more sense. If your on ssi and don't need the job market, can you imagine how refreshing a small town in another state could benefit you?

Maybe it's time to look at some of the surrounding states for more affordable accommodations.

I hope your situation improves soon and hopefully life starts looking a little more positive for you

Best wishes

Jeff Larabee answered:
I've brokered a number of these type of deals. I am a broker who buys and sells real estate and I also have a small property management business so there have been a few times when we have sold to the tenants via a lease to own option. There are many ways to structure the deal but my biggest take away is there is not very much risk to the owner but there is risk for the tenant (because of the option fee they must pay up front). ... more

Good Sunday Morning!
I am not familiar with many trailers in town, just a few since the "trailers" are from the 50's and 60's. We do have manufactured mobile homes. I will look of the address you mention and get back to you this afternoon. Just headed out to do an open house. Thanks. Di2 951-492-9642 ... more

Dee Oliver answered:
I have done some research to attempt to answer your question. According to Google, the telephone prefix for the purported property manager is in New York. Secondly, I could not find a real estate agent in California with the name of Jaime S Guandique. I also Googled him, found a Facebook page and one other person by that name in Linked In. No mention of being in real estate. I then Googled the address on "Merton" in Bakersfield. Found nothing but I did find 5312 Menton in Bakersfield and looked that up for you. That house is presently listed for sale as a short sale. If you wish more information, please contact me. I would be very careful since there are have been many instances where unauthorized persons have listed homes for rent, taken money from the renter, renter moves in and then the REAL owner shows up. Not sure if this is the case, but there have been repeated news stories about this in the last few years. Please feel free to contact me if you wish to find out whether you might be able to purchase a home.Dee Oliver ... more

Probably a scam Timothy. This house is listed for sale on the MLS , not for rent.
There are a lot of rental scams going on , please do your due diligence before sending any monies.

charles butterfield answered:
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

You should look at Craig's list
Or home away from home
Be cautious and careful with Craig's list, but they are informative
Realtors don't really deal with rooms, Owners do

Hi D.R.,

If you want to rent it, put it on Craigslist.

If the price is right, it will rent quickly.

Best of luck,

Are you looking to rent or purchase? In any case sounds like Glenshire may be the right neighborhood for you as they do allow fences and have reasonable rents.
