The market is very tight - rentals are rare and the homes for sale just as bad - If you can find a way to purchase you could at least have a place where you don't have to have permission for the dogs.
A nice little home can be bought for little to ZERO down, and payments can be less than Rent - Is it possible you might qualify to purchase?

Best Wishes

I'd try Craigslist, that seems to be the preferred place to post and find rentals. It may be slim pickin's at the moment, but in a couple/few months, more inventory should pop up.

I highly recommend you look into buying a home instead of renting. Since you are disabled, you might qualify for some great government and niche lending programs to help with down payment and / or closing costs.

I assume your disability income is "tax free" so they typically gross it up 25% to make it equal to what most people would have to make in order to "net" your income. For example, $2,000 a month disability is considered $2,500 to a mortgage lender.

You might even qualify for special property tax discounts like the "circuit breaker exemption".

Unless you plan on paying off your next house for your future landlord, you might want to give it some thought.

I do not sell homes in the Pocatello area, but would be glad to refer you to someone that could help you locally.

Best of luck!

Sharon Walker answered:
I would be checking on property management companies in the area and see if they have anything listed that may work. I would also see if you qualify for Section 8 housing which helps pay your rent each month.

Good luck on your search.

Patrick Fields answered:
I recommend starting with your search with first identifying houses/owners that will accept section 8. Once you know what home options are available - you may want to then reconsider your wish list.

Keep in mind that if the schools and area, style of home, and type of appliances are highly desirable, it is likely that a non-section 8 tenant might be equally interested, wiling to pay more than a voucher would, and unfortunately, more desirable to the landlord.

In short, you are at a disadvantage when it comes to competing for the best rental properties and demands such as HE appliances and a modern style may need to be reconsidered in order to have any suitable options.

Jim Paulson answered:

Did you know it might be possible to actually buy a home using your Section 8 Voucher to help offset the payments?

I was shocked when a client of mine was able to use their Section 8 housing voucher to buy a home in Meridian a few years ago. I had another client use their Section 8 housing voucher to buy a home last year in Boise too.

For that monthly payment, you would be in roughly the $150k price range and we can find lots of choices for a five bedroom home with a three car garage in the Meridian High School boundaries for that including possibly building a home!

Hope that helps give you some new insight and options. If you need details, contact me.

Chase Craig answered:
Your best bet is to try and avoid the foreclosure...I'm sure you've already tried traditional measures, like scrambling to bring the loan current etc.

Have you thought about performing a short sale on the property?

A foreclosure sticks on your credit report for up to 7 years and has a much further negative impact then a short sale. They can also come after you for the deficiency, whereas a short sale you might be able to get them to waive that.

Give me a call at (208)284-0829 to discuss this in further detail and find out if it is right for you.
