Hello Andre

I was able to find only 2 rentals on the MLS that are available furnished. Not knowing how much you can afford for rent since its only for 10 months that you are looking for. The 1st one is yearly and the 2nd one is monthly. If you would like any further assistance or would care to share with me what time frame and how much you would like to spend I could do a further search for you. Contact me

Dear jipeters4,

There are currently 5 units for sale with one as a short sale and the other four are owned by the same corporate seller (not bank owned). With 40 units in the complex, 5 offered for sale is not an unusually high number. For more information, please feel free to reach me with your thoughts and questions anytime.

Dear Ethical,

There are a few rentals that might fit the bill around town. I have a few that I would recommend because they are not on a busy street, in good condition, and have yards where the kids can be outside every day. Contact me any time direct at 603-781-4099 or by email ... more

Travis - You must get pre approved by a lender to know for sure what price range you can afford. Don't waste your time looking at properties you can't buy. It's good feeling when you know this in advance so then whatever you look at you most likely will be able to write an offer on it. ... more

Contact a local agent who can help you with finding a suitable foreclosure or short sale in you area. You can search on the web, but an experienced agent is worth their weight in gold when it comes to these type of purchases.

All the best,

Scott Godzyk answered:
If you are looking at homes here on trulia there is no serperation unless adjust your search. The problem starts when some listings here are picked up by an automatic feed. The feed only uploads some fields and not all. If the listing agent has it listed under residential you will not see that it is a condo unless they come on this site and edit whoch most do not do. The best place to look for homes for sale is a direct dsearch from the MLS, If you need assistance in finding a home, please feel free to give me a call or email. ... more

Melissa - That would depend on how strong your market place is & what your Spring market is doing now. I'm sure some local agents will chime in here! I can tell you that the Cape Cod market, lower price range, is booming right now. ... more

You can get a loan from Utah and buy in Florida, the lenders just need to be licensed there. Speak to some lenders, ask if they can do a loan there. Ask to get prequalified to see if you are able to buy. Just start asking questions and it will fall into place. Putting down 75% will make things easier anywhere you go. ... more

Bad credit is worse then no credit. With no credit I can do alternative credit (rent, utlity payment, insurance & etc) for a mortgage. Bad credit show an unwillingness to pay.

Your question is like dangling a toy in front of an alert toddler! But, of course you know that! I'll take the bait...

1. A buyer will typically have little or no expense in exchange for the professional advise, opinion, and expertise offered by a Realtor - its a win/win.

2. Using a Realtor can save countless hours in delays, mistakes, and rework.

3. A Realtor is far better equipped to handle complex negotiations on your behalf much more expertly than the general buying public.

4. A Realtor has access to critial information about neighborhoods and property history that can potentially save you thousands of dollars and years of regret.

5. A strong agent will always have alternatives to offer with every choice and solutions to every possible problem that arises.

6. Even after purchase, a Realtor will be able to gain you access to vendor discounts on home improvement, landscaping and in many cases, retail home goods.

7. A Realtor can simply the entire transaction with detailed but simple explanations, counsel, and when necessary, a heavy hand on your behalf.

The list goes on and on and on, so, the real question is, why would you ever want to go it alone when "you have a friend in real estate" - Realtor Pat!

Pat Rose answered:
Good morning, I certainly cannot answer whether there is something unsellable about your house, but I can tell you that the broker is looking at the comps and advising you based on current sales which are occuring daily. If your house was overpriced to being with, you are simply chasing the market downwards. The market doesn't typically pick up in September as homeowners with kids like to be settled before the start of school. Your broker is giving you the best advice for the market today and the fact that we are going into fall and winter. Buyers do not care what you paid for your house and it doesn't factor at all in the market. Add up your carrying costs for the next few months and factor that into your final decision. Good luck. ... more

Don Tepper answered:
It's more likely to depend on your town or city and what regulations it might have. And the regulations might apply to the acceptability of month-to-month rentals. There might also be restrictions on the number of unrelated adults who can occupy a property. And if you're buying a condo or a home with a homeowner's association, the condo or homeowner's association may have rules limiting such practices.

So, check into that. But--as a practical matter--a lot of people do rent out individual rooms to college students. I live close to a big university, and it's not at all uncommon.

One tip: If you haven't bought yet, look for a property with a high ratio of bathrooms to bedrooms. You don't want a 4 bedroom/1 bath home if you're going to be renting it out to multiple people. Instead, look for a home (and townhouses are really good with the ratio) with something like 4 beds/3 baths.

Hope that helps.

Yes, it's absolutely possible and easy to do. The tax implications are best discussed with a tax attorney.

There are 51 rentals in Dover that I found using Cazoodle Apartment Search. It might worth checking out see if any of these are lease-to-purchase.
